on the Lakes
Juried Art Show
20 July - 16 August 2012
The Paul Smith's College VIC will host a Juried Art Show commencing with an artist reception on 20 July from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. Artwork will be on display through 16 August. The theme of the show will be "Life on the Lakes." There will be an entry fee of $25 for 1 or 2 pieces. Art can be dropped off at the VIC from 15 July to 18 July. Selection for the show will take place on 19 July and the show will be hung on 19 and 20 July. Only hand deliveries will be accepted. At the discretion of the artist, art will be on sale during the show. Works in all two-dimensional media are eligible, no wider than 30" including the frame.
The VIC has commissioned Joe Van Putten and Susan Olsen to select the items to be hung for the show. They will award a "Best in Show," "Best Photo," "Best Painting," and "Honorable Mention" prize.
- Susan Olsen is a familiar face in the North Country Art Scene. Until last year, she was the proprietor of "Borealis Color" - an art supply store in Saranac Lake. Susan is an active studio artist and educator and is involved in the tri-lakes and regional arts communities.
- Joe Van Putten is semi-retired and comes to us from the New York metropolitan area following a forty year career as an artist and educator.
These two very different artistic people have one very important central thread: an abiding love of both the Adirondacks and the Arts. It is this diversity of ideas and experiences that make the Adirondacks such a wonderful place for an artist to live and work.
People's Choice Award
VIC will also award a "People's Choice" Award at "The
Monarchs in the Meadow" musical event on 25 August. People
visiting the VIC will purchase ballots and vote on their favorite
artwork in the show. Ballots are $2. All proceeds from the show
will go toward developing arts programming at the VIC.
