NORWICH – The Chenango County Council of the Arts hosts its annual Members Show in which a series of works created by council members will be unveiled, many for the first time, during an open reception tonight, from 5 to 7 at the council’s gallery in Norwich.
The annual exhibit and reception is a free, open to the public event that shows off the hard work and creativity of more than 25 Arts Council members, each granted the opportunity to showcase up to three of their works. The display encompasses a range of mediums including stencil, oil paint, papier mache, ceramics, pottery, quilting and photography.
“It’s a great showing of a variety of works,” explained Arts Council Operations and Programs Director Joyce Zummo. “We have a couple of different artists who have even chosen to go a totally different direction with their work and that’s really exciting to see,” she said. “They get very excited about it, particularly members who don’t make it to art shows or who are showing their work for the first time.”
