Holiday Show opens in Chester gallery

CHESTERTOWN - The Holiday Show of the Art in Chestertown Gallery opens Thursday Nov. 11, and all are invited to stop in and examine the array of new art on exhibit.

The Holiday Show is the final show this year in the Gallery, sponsored by the North Country Arts Center.

An artists reception for the new exhibit, to be on display until Jan. 8, is scheduled for Saturday Nov. 13 from 5 to 7 p.m.

The Gallery has been met with rave reviews from the public and artists alike. Originally designed to attract local emerging artists, the first show opened in July with 25 artists. Now, with over 60 artists having exhibited their work, the success of the summer show persuaded the NCAC to plan two additional exhibits of local artists.

Staying true to its roots, the gallery provides a diverse selection of drawings, paintings, fabric art, mixed media, pottery, and jewelry. After the Holiday show, the gallery will close until next June when It is expected to reopen with a exhibition of student art.

The gallery is open Thursday through Monday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is located on Main St. in Chestertown. For details, call Fred Holman at 803-4034.
