VIEW, a multi-arts center located in Old Forge, has announced a call for entry for the 2016 Central Adirondack Art Show.
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.
Held for the first time in 1952, by VIEW founder Miriam Kashiwa in her front yard, the Central Adirondack Art Show is a testament to the significant place the arts hold within the hearts and minds of the residents and visitors to the Adirondacks.
The exhibition is open to all artists, ages 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.
Artwork can be dropped off at VIEW between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on April 22, 23, 25, or 26th.
Judging the exhibition will be artist 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.
She graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, plus teacher certification, and taught high school art in Northern New York 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.
