Ticonderoga An art exhibit opening will highlight the second week of MArts Madness in Ticonderoga.
“Brush, Nibs, Lenses and More” will open Sunday, March 9, with a reception 1 to 3 p.m. at the Hancock House.
“Please join us as we present a display of local art pieces, some from the Ticonderoga Historical Society’s collections and some graciously loaned to us for this special exhibit,” Nancy Tierney, Ticonderoga Historical Society vice president, said.
“The program is a celebration of local art in mixed mediums including oils, water color, paper mache, acrylics, pottery, photographs, collections gifted to the society by the artist or the artist collectors, and more,” Tierney said. “The committee, composed of society volunteer Mary Lou Greenough and society board members Dorcey Crammond and William Dolback, is particularly busy painting, changing around rooms and pulling in a variety of objects from near and far to display for the enjoyment of all.”
Light refreshments will be served by the society during the opening day of the exhibit.
“This presentation is being made possible by the Ticonderoga Historical Society as a participant in the community’s second annual MArts Madness celebration,” Tierney said. “The exhibit will be featured in the upstairs Harmon Gallery until late this year. This gallery presentation is an integral part of a much larger Hancock House contribution to the year-long celebration of Ticonderoga’s 250th anniversary celebration.”
The Hancock House gift shop will be open with a 10 percent discount during the reception.
“This is a perfect time to get out of the house, put the snow, ice and cold behind you and enjoy an afternoon and refreshments with your neighbors and friends. We look forward to your visit at the Hancock House,” Tierney said.
