ELECTION COVERAGE — There are countless nuisances that keep journalists awake at night.

Angry calls from readers, a lack of responses from potential interview subjects, corrections — all of these things go bump in the night for those who spend the majority of it in a newsroom.

For print journalists especially, chief among these annoyances are deadlines, constantly forcing the writer and the editor to make last-minute decisions whether that story can make the next day’s press. For those of us in weekly community news, these decisions are naturally even more difficult, given that we are faced with the expectation of printing a week’s worth of news in one printing run.

Sometimes, situations inevitably transpire in which, due to the nature of weekly print deadlines, breaking news must wait a week before hitting the newsstands. Such is the case this week with the Clarence, Amherst, and Ken-Ton Bee’s election coverage, as the results of last night’s elections will have been reported well past our print deadline.

The advent of the internet was a mostly foreboding one for print news, but its ominous surge has unquestionably carried with it some positives. By visiting The Clarence Bee’s website, Facebook and Twitter platforms, readers will be updated simultaneously as we report on the events of Election Day 2018. While these stories will run in the Nov. 14 print editions, they will be posted to our online platforms well before then.

ART WINE DINE — Canvas Salon and Gallery and The Hollow Bistro & Brew will present the fourth annual “Art Wine Dine” event with artist Kathleen Sherin on Thursday, Nov. 8.

The evening begins with Sherin’s opening reception at Canvas Salon & Gallery, 9520 Main St., at 5:30 p.m. with complimentary appetizers, wine and beer, followed by a ticketed Wine Pairing Dinner at The Hollow Bistro & Brew, 10641 Main St, at 7 p.m. The dinner will be presented with exclusive pieces from Sherin, in which partial proceeds will benefit Headbands of Hope’s donation to Children’s Hospital. Limited tickets are available for purchase at both Canvas Salon & Gallery and The Hollow Bistro & Brew for $100 per seat. Sherin’s work will be on exhibit and available for purchase at Canvas Salon & Gallery through the end of December.

Sherin is a studio artist at Buffalo Arts Studio and creates her larger prints at the Experimental Print Imaging Center at the University at Buffalo.

Until 2015, she taught drawing and design as an adjunct faculty member at both Niagara County Community College and D’Youville College and was also the gallery director and curator of the Dolce Valvo Art Center at NCCC. Currently, she curates visual art exhibitions at Betty’s Restaurant in Buffalo and maintains her studio practice.

Sherin attributes some of her visual inspiration to the years she worked as an emergency room nurse and educator at Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, as well as a personal fascination with human sensory and psychological issues.
