Linda Hall and Ann Parker will be coming together to present a joint exhibit, Hometowns & Endpapers, in the Harold L. Olmsted Gallery at Springville Center for the Arts.  This show incorporates pieces from Hall’s Hometowns of WNY collection and Parker’s Endpapers collection featuring her photography, and runs from Saturday, July 22 through Saturday, Aug. 19.

Linda Hall, President of East Aurora Arts Society, grew up in Western New York. She gets her inspiration from the Southtowns Scenic Byway area.  With over 15 paintings in her collection, Hall uses a variety of shapes and colors to give the viewer a different perspective of the towns they live in and travel to.  Hall uses acrylic paints on board and canvas.

Ann Parker has been a photographer for over 30 years.  She took a liking to endpapers, patterned pages at the front and back of books.  After taking pictures of them, she manipulates them, using three-dimensional shapes and objects to create something new and original.  Parker’s endpapers are printed and mounted on rigid gator board or metal.

The show officially starts with a free reception held in the Olmsted Gallery on Saturday, July 22 from 6:30  to 8 p.m.  Refreshments will be served and the artists will be on hand to discuss their work.

Gallery hours are Wednesdays and Fridays from noon to 5 p.m., Thursdays from noon to 8 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The Harold L. Olmsted Gallery is located in Springville Center for the Arts at 37 North Buffalo Street, Springville, NY 14141.  For more information, please call (716) 592-9038 or visit our website at
