Helen Demong of Saranac Lake is the recipient of the individual artists award for her proposal of “Voices of Timbuctoo: An Abolition Oratorio.”
“Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with senior citizens who play a vital role in our community as individuals and talented artists, view artwork created by the Girl Scouts who worked with the senior artists, and meet other artists and organizations who are promoting the arts in our tri-county community,” Janine Scherline, executive director of the NCCCA, said in a press release.
“This closing reception is a chance for the community to come get one last look at the show and meet the artists in person,” Shawna Armstrong, NCCCA graphics and gallery coordinator said in a press release. “The artists range from beginners to life-long masters. There is a wealth of knowledge and creativity here that the community should experience.”

“I think it’s going to be nice to honor artists exhibiting in the community at the same time as the award ceremony,” Recchia said.
Since the NCCCA has recently become the artistic hub for the three counties, Recchia said it will be an opportunity to gain insight into what others are doing and find inspiration for their own communities.
“It’s a chance for folks from all over the North Country to see what is going on at the other end of the region, something they might not get to do from home,” Recchia said.
