Become a part of a long-standing Adirondack tradition. Professional and amateur artists age 16 and over are invited to display their work at View, the new Arts Center in Old Forge, in the 60th Annual Central Adirondack Art Show. The exhibition is limited to fine arts in the following categories: acrylics, oils or pastels, watermedia, drawing or graphics, mixed media, and 3-dimensional art or sculpture. Photography, digital art, and craft work are not eligible.
Artists may submit one original work never previously shown in the Central Adirondack Art Show. Only recent artwork, executed in the past two years will be allowed. Artworks dimensions are limited to 48 inches in any direction. All two dimensional artwork must be appropriately framed with hook eyes and wire for hanging. All three dimensional artwork must be complete and moveable. The last day to enter the Central Adirondack Art Show is Sunday June 26, from noon- 3pm. Entries may be dropped off in advance, but not before Saturday, June 18.
A first, second and third prize will be given in five categories, as well as special awards. Prizes totaling over $1,500 will be awarded, as well as an opportunity to have work purchased for View?s permanent collection.
The 60th Annual Central Adirondack Art show will be judged by some of View’s
founders Miriam Kashiwa, and Allen Stripp. The exhibition began on Miriam’s lawn and spawned View, so it is only appropriate that the two should judge the 60th exhibition. Together Miriam and Allen have more than 100 years of experience in bringing artwork to the Adirondacks. Their dedication and perseverance to a vision serve as a reminder of the journey as well as the inspiration to dream into the future.
The exhibition will open July 1 and run through August 7. For more information or to obtain entry forms visit www.ViewArts.org or call View at 315.369641.
