Locality

What is local art? Does it have to be made by someone who lives within a certain distance from the venue in which it is shown?
Can someone living in another state or country be considered
a local artist in Clifton Springs? Artists are constantly making connections and developing relationships with various local communities all over the world. An artist who grew up in upstate New York might move to New York City, or out of state; but they still have that local connection. Likewise, an artist born in another country might decide to attend college in Upstate New York and build local connections here.

 

An exhibition that addressed the notion of "local art," Locality was Main Street Arts' premiere exhibition which featured over 25 artists. The exhibition included paintings, photographs, sculpture, jewelry, works on paper, and ceramics from artists who have local connections.
