Jericho Arts Council Regatta Row 2020 April 22 to May 23 The Jericho Arts Council (JAC) of Bainbridge is looking to sponsor 20 juried Artists for a month long, sidewalk exhibition of art. For the 6​th​ year, Artists will express their creativity, on unique Adirondack “​Canoe Paddle Chairs” or upon petite child sized versions of the chairs. This year the theme is “Sunrise/Sunset” and diverse interpretations are welcome!

JAC will provide artists with the chairs, paint (Golden Artist Colors has generously donated their exceptional paints in the past) and a stipend of $125 for the adult chairs and $75 for the Children’s chairs. Cash awards of $50 to $100 will be granted in 5 categories. Artists will be promoted with bio’s on the JAC website as well as in a media conference, regional press releases, posters, social media and on maps of the Art Trail. For a month, photos of each piece of art will be posted on the website along with the opportunity for bidding in advance of the Live Auction to take place on Sat, May 23 at the General Clinton Canoe Regatta.

The art will be displayed on Bainbridge sidewalks from April 22 till Memorial Day weekend. Bainbridge, like dozens of other Towns and villages in this area, is attempting a grass roots revitalization of the community and this is one of the efforts to support the JAC. Proceeds from the May 23 Art Auction will go to the Jericho Arts Council to support our Artists & Musicians and to create future events.

While the artist’s finished work will be on display for a month, the ​Regatta Row Street Art Fest​ ​is ONE afternoon only, Sat. May 16 from noon to 3.​ The fun starts at Bainbridge Town Hall (15 N Main St.) with an award ceremony, followed by the noon opening. (Rain? We all move into Town Hall Theatre, Gallery, Lobby and various businesses). Artists will be meeting the public (about 300 attended last year) near their Art. With the music of 25+ street musicians filling the air, local merchant participation, the art being inspirational and the attendees surprised by the generous spirit of all, it will be a unique and very sweet day…

This is a heartfelt, family festival, based on the volunteerism of the artistic community. Artists are encouraged to promote their talent and to distribute cards or advertisements.

Apply today! If you want to participate or pass this invite on to others who may be interested, please do! Save the Date – May 16 to bring out friends, family and fans for the fun! The Auction, at General Clinton Park Regatta on May 23 is always exciting. Please share this adventure with your social media postings!
