CCAC gears up for a new year

LOCK HAVEN — The Clinton County Arts Council is gearing up for another year showcasing local artists talent at The Station Gallery, 2 E. Bald Eagle St., Lock Haven.

CCAC President Carol Ann Cillo said this year’s exhibits will kick off with a special one on April 23.

The CCAC is partnering with the Master Garenders for its Earth Day exhibit, “What’s all the Buzz?”

The exhibit will feature an open house on April 23 from 1-4 p.m. inside and outside the Station Gallery.

“It will include participation by the Clinton County Conservation District and LHU Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society in Education,” Cillo said. “There will be kids and adults activities and an exhibit indoors with art and with butterflies!”

The exhibit will be available to view until May 7.

Anyone over 18 years of age may enter a piece into the exhibit whose theme is “all things garden.” Inspiration can include pollinators, flowers, vegetables, fruits, trees, landscapes and more.

All artwork must be original and created within the last five years. Work that has won an award previously at the gallery is not eligible. Cillo and the CCAC board welcome all forms of media.

Entry is free with the following deadlines:

— Jpeg entires (for jurying) are due at midnight Thursday, March 31.

— Those who are accepted into the exhibit will receive notification on Saturday, April 2.

— Artwork should be delivered to the gallery by Saturday, April 9. A complete copy of tags should be shown to the right, safely on the front of each piece.

— Artwork will need to be on or after May 7 with hours to be announced at a later date.

During the gallery opening on April 23, visitors to the gallery will take part in a People’s Choice Awards, ranking their top 3 favorite pieces.

Following this exhibit, the CCAC will return to its regularly scheduled shows. The first will be a Combo exhibit, exclusive to members of the arts council or the Bald Eagle Art League.

The combined members exhibit will begin with an opening reception on Friday, May 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. and conclude on June 13.

A Jpeg image of your work must be submitted by midnight on Friday, April 29 in order to be consider. Any local artists who are not members of CCAC may become one by visiting www.stationgalleryccac.org.
