Salmon River Art Show Announcement
The Salmon River Fine Arts Center announced the winners of their annual “Sunday Artist” Show on Sunday, May 16 during a Facebook Live event. The show, sponsored by Edward Jones, is an opportunity for amateurs, emerging artists, and semi-professional artists (those not making a livelihood with their art) to exhibit their art and have it professionally judged. Thirty-three local artists entered the show this year with over 85 pieces. This year’s judging was done by Sharon Blair, a lifelong multi-disciplined artist from Syracuse Commercial Art Supply. Blair has had her work exhibited in many Central New York venues and has juried various regional art shows. The judge’s picks were based on three criteria: visual impact, originality and craftsmanship and cash awards were presented for first, second and third place in the following 7 categories.
“We are excited to see such a great breadth of work and talent from our local community,” says Anna Blachman, gallery chair of the Salmon River Fine Arts Center. The public is invited to see this free show and award winning work in-person at the Arts Center in Pulaski during regular gallery hours, Thursday and Fridays noon - 6PM and Saturdays 10AM - 2PM, or on-line anytime at: https://salmonriverfineartscenter.square.site/sunday-artists-show
The Salmon River Fine Arts Center would like to thank Edward Jones for being the title sponsor for this year’s Sunday Artists Show. The Art Center is grateful to Kathryn Connell, the local financial advisor of Edward Jones in Pulaski, NY for her commitment to investing in the local community.
