2016 Central Adirondack Art Show Seeks Entries

manhunt in the belly of the bestView, the multi-arts center located in Old Forge, has announced the call for entry for the 2016 Central Adirondack Art Show. Artwork can be dropped off at View from 10 am-4 pm on April 22nd, 23rd, 25th, or 26th.

The Central Adirondack Art show is a long-standing Old Forge tradition, showcasing some of the finest artists from the Central Adirondack Region and beyond. It was held for the first time in 1952 by View founder Miriam Kashiwa in her front yard.

Judging the exhibition will be artist (and frequent Adirondack Almanack contributor) Sandra Hildreth of Saranac Lake. She is an active working artist and member of the Adirondack Artists Guild Gallery, a co-op gallery in Saranac Lake. Hildreth graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, plus teacher certification, and taught high school art in Northern NY for 31 years. Her oil and watercolor paintings are in many private collections, including St. Lawrence University. Hildreth is a founding member of Saranac Lake ArtWorks and created and organizes the annual Adirondack Plein Air Festival.

The exhibition is open to all artists, age 16 and up working in any media (except sound, video and film). There is no judging for entry into the exhibition; all artwork submitted to the show will be displayed (as long as they adhere to the prospectus guidelines). There is an entry fee of $15 for View members and $20 for non-members.

    When is the actual art show and how long is the exhibit on view? The above notice doesn’t seem to include this info.
