                 CALL FOR ARTISTS

                        The Chenango Arts Council Invites Artists Entries for:

   Public Arts Initiative Summer 2015

Public Arts Initiative (PAI):  The PAI was created to present an inviting and welcoming image of our community as a destination place by bringing the arts to the public in everyday life.  Public art enriches the areas where we live, work and play, thereby increasing business, encouraging tourism and reducing unsightly or vacant areas. The PAI will support and showcase local area talent and give artists greater exposure for their work. Click on the above link for entry information.

The above is artwork from Ann Parker which hung in the Chenango Public Art Initiative's (PAI) premiere exhibit at the Artists' Palette in downtown Norwich.
The show was up until May 19.
The next PAI exhibit will open on Friday, June 26 from 5-7pm at the CAC in the Mariea Brown and Raymond Loft Gallery.
Gallery exhibits are free and open to the public!
