The Cooperstown Art Association is pleased to announce the opening reception of two new exhibits and the re-opening of our Gallery Shop to be held Friday, March 8th
from 5-7 pm. "An Artistic Discovery," a collective exhibit of artwork by Otsego County High School Students, will be on display in Gallery A. "The Memory Box Project", in Gallery B, is made up of work by the residents of Woodside Hall, a local Cooperstown Adult Home. Both exhibits will be on display through March 29th. The Gallery Shop will once again be filled with creative, unique artwork and fine crafts and will be open for all your gift giving needs through October! So come out and celebrate the wealth of talent that Otsego County has to offer. Color and creativity abound in all media, brightening up the month of March!
"An Artistic Discovery" features artwork by approximately 100 students from Otsego County, representing an average of 8 schools as well as work by homeschooled students. Three jurors selected by the Cooperstown Art Association and representing different areas of Otsego County will award six Award of Merits as well as additional juror citations. Stop in and see this exciting and fresh exhibit of work by the young aspiring artists of Otsego County.
Crafted by the Residents of Woodside Hall, "The Memory Box Project" brings the past to life! Each memory box identifies a significant piece of a resident's journey through life - from careers to hobbies to the little moments they've enjoyed. With help from volunteer Sarah Ells, these boxes offer a glimpse into a life, and a chance to appreciate the artistic visions and talents of Woodside residents!
Our ongoing Gallery Shop features a large variety of original work by local and regional member artists. Jewelry, ceramics, fiber and more delight the eyes and make the perfect gift for an anniversary, wedding or birthday. Make someone's day with an original artwork including oils, watercolors, etchings, photography, cards and more!
