Old Forge Library Local Art Exhibit

Local Art Exhibit: Deadline June 24, Reception July 5th

The Old Forge Library is calling area artists to submit to Local ART, an open exhibit featuring 2-D artwork in any media.

Artists may submit photography, oil paintings, acrylics, water media, pastel, mixed media, collage, printmaking, quilting and drawing. The entry deadline is June 24 and there is no entry fee. Interested artists can find the prospectus and guidelines on the library’s website oldforgelibrary.org, find the exhibits page, or stop by the library for a printed copy.

The exhibit will be on display from June 28 through July 27 during library hours with an opening reception to be held in conjunction with the local First Friday Artwalk on July 5 from 5-7 pm.

Library director and gallery owner, Linda Weal said, “We love to celebrate the arts community and our amazing local creativity. Our arts scene is diverse – all ages, all media, all levels of experience. Art is fun and art is for everyone!”

She also explained that this is a great opportunity for beginners, students and youth.

“The library is friendly and we welcome everyone who would like to participate. It is inspired by our community’s first local art shows that Mirnie Kashiwa established in the 50s,” she said.

The Old Forge Library hosts a variety of art exhibitions throughout the year, primarily from local artists, and supports the creative spirit in all of us. Call the library or email for information about library exhibits; 315-369-6008 or oldforge@midyork.org.
