Calling all Niagara County artists ages 55 and up.
The Council for Older Adults (COA) in Niagara County invites all Niagara County residents over age 55 to enter the COA Amateur Art Exhibit.
The Amateur Art Exhibit includes original artwork in oil, watercolor, sketches, needlework, photography, pottery, jewelry, sculpture and woodworking. Each artist must be at least 55 years old and may submit up to five pieces of art.
A press release noted, “This is not a competition. There will be no judges, no prizes and no entry fee. This exhibit is also not an art sale, although artists are encouraged to include their name and phone number with their work if they are interested in selling it at a future date.”
The artwork will be on display from June 28 through July 10 at the New York State Power Authority’s Power Vista overlooking the international border and waterway. The 2023 amateur art exhibit can be seen by the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. A small reception will be held for the participants, their families and friends from noon until 2 p.m. July 10.
Framed or suitably mounted pieces are preferred, but not required, as long as the artwork can be displayed. All artwork and display items (such as easels, frames) must be labeled.
