and Ontario Pathways trail system, Main Street Arts is announcing
a call for work for this third annual exhibition held at The Gallery
at Clifton Springs Hospital.
Open to all artists. The only criteria is that the submissions are photographs or paintings of the Ontario Pathways trail system
or the immediately surrounding areas. You may submit up to three
pieces for consideration.
Submission Deadline: Friday, September 1, 2017
Exhibition Dates: October 3–December 29, 2017
About the Ontario Pathways Trail System:
Ontario Pathways is a twenty five mile system comprised of a 23.3 mile multi-use trail with an additional three loop trails for another 1.7 miles of a hiking only trail. Located in Ontario County, the trail is open year round from dawn to dusk and is free to the general public to use.
About The Gallery at Clifton Springs Hospital:
Located on the second floor in the hospital's Oncology wing, the gallery features quarterly exhibitions showcasing local artists and
art groups. A portion of each sale will be donated to the Moment
of Kindness fund, which serves local residents undergoing cancer treatment at the hospital.
For the fourth year in a row, we are hosting a unique painting competition open to students in grades 6-12 residing in Ontario, Wayne, Monroe, Livingston, Seneca, and Yates Counties.
This year, students will receive a 5in x 7in canvas and use it to make
a self portrait. In the age of the "Selfie", the act of painting your own portrait is much less immediate but also much more permanent,
it exists in reality and not just on social media. We encourage all interpretations of "self portrait"…
All artwork entered will be displayed upstairs at Main Street Arts.
All media will be accepted, the only stipulation is that the artwork
be done on the provided canvas. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to showcase their artwork in a professional gallery setting.
