CHENANGO COUNTY – This year the Colorscape Board of Directors is pleased to announce the addition of a new exhibit that will feature the work of individuals living in Chenango County residential care facilities.
The new exhibit, "Colorscape Cares," will be a great way to showcase work being done in care facilities throughout the county, as well as give these individuals the opportunity to display their work at a high caliber art festival.
The new juried exhibit will be held Sept. 6-7 at The Artists’ Palette located at 17-19 South Broad Street in Norwich. The exhibit will be housed alongside the Student Art Exhibit, which has been an important part of the festival for over nearly two decades. The new location will allow space for the submission of paintings, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, and ceramics. There is no admission fee to enter this exhibit.
This year's judges are L. Emma Mill, Stacie Edick, and Wells Horton. Jill Kraft, the director of the Student Art Exhibit and Colorscape Cares, as well as the owner of the Artists’ Palette, will be collecting artwork from Aug. 26 through Sept. 3 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 17-19 South Broad Street.
The show will be judged during the week prior to the festival with award winners receiving cash prizes. The award ceremony will be held Sunday, Sept. 7 at 3 p.m. for both exhibits.
