CHESTERTOWN - A welcoming response to the recent opening of the Art in Chestertown gallery is likely to spur more art-related activities in town, according to the gallery sponsors, the North Country Art Center.
A total of 42 artists are now represented and visitors to the gallery have offered positive comment son both the diversity and quality of the work.
Many of the artists have expressed the desire to develop a program of classes and other activity.
One of the purposes of this summer gallery is to bring local artists with diverse interests together and provide a place to show their work. North Country Art Center officials hope this opportunity can grow and develop a more active creative community in the northern Warren County region. The public is invited to respond by providing their ideas and encourage other artists to participate on some level, if only socially, Gallery officials said.
The North Country Art Center is holding a reception at the Art in Chester gallery from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 28 as part of their Family Fun Day, and all are invited to attend. For details, call Fred Holman at: 803-4034.
