'Collections' Exhibit to Appear At Owens' Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery, June - August

A vast array of one-of-a-kind and odd collectables will be the focal point of new exhibit opening at Owens Community College's Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery. The new exhibition is titled "Collections" and will feature rare and treasured items by local residents, June 6 - August 5. An opening reception for the exhibit will occur from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, June 10.

"Owens Community College's Center for Fine and Performing Arts is excited to feature an exhibit that showcases vast collections from people of all walks of life," said Wynn Perry, Owens Adjunct Faculty member who curates the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery. "Everything from Victorian lamps to model trains are expected to be on display. It will be extremely interesting for attendees to not only see the items that people collect, but to also learn about the stories behind them."

Highlighting display items will be a variety of memorabilia and souvenirs from the 1939 World's Fair held at the Flushing Meadows Park in Queens, New York. Occurring at the height of the art movement, the 1939 World's Fair featured the architectural Trylon and Perisphere masterpieces. These modern marvels stood for years until the buildings were torn down for World War II efforts. Today, only memorabilia depicting their images exists and is considered a rare and hard-to-find item.

Other items that will be on display include Victorian lamps, old-fashioned bottle openers, Roseville pottery, antique postcards, hand-embroidered antique household linens, antique model trains and Panther lamps, among other collectibles.

Admission to the Walter E. Terhune Art Gallery is free and open to the public, Monday - Thursday, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. For additional information about the exhibit or the College's 2005-06 Art Exhibition Season, contact the Center for Fine and Performing Arts at (567) 661-2721 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 2721.
