On display: April 1-May 2
Opening reception: Friday, April 1, 5:00-7:00 pm
A new exhibit featuring award winning artwork by students in grades 7-12 opens at the Potsdam Town Hall on Friday, April 1 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. The exhibit was organized by SLC Arts in partnership with the North Country Art Teachers’ Association (NCATA).
The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are an annual, national competition; local students from St. Lawrence County compete as part of the Central New York Art Region in Syracuse, NY. The NCATA approached SLC Arts last year with the idea of re-displaying award winning artwork closer to home following the display in Syracuse.
Visual art award winners from St. Lawrence County this year include middle and high school students from Harrisville, Massena, Norwood-Norfolk, Parishville-Hopkinton, and Potsdam.
The “Scholastic Art Awards of Central New York Regional Art Show” will be on display at the SLC Arts Gallery at the Potsdam Town Hall, 18 Elm Street, through May 2. The exhibit and opening are free and open to the public, and wheelchair accessible.
SLC Arts events like this one are made possible by financial contributions by local community members. The Gallery is open during Town Hall business hours, Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. For more information about this exhibit, contact 315-265-6860, or visit http://slcartscouncil.org/
