Entries for art competition requested

— The North Country Cultural Center and the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau are excited to announce the call for entries for this year’s Adirondack Coast ARTWays competition. The theme of this year’s Adirondack Coast ARTWays is the Battle of Plattsburgh Bicentennial. Two hundred years have passed since military forces battled for colonial rights off the coast of Plattsburgh and throughout the region. To commemorate these events the 2014 theme of ARTWays is honoring this rich history by inviting artists to reinterpret these events through creative expression.

Artist can submit one work in any medium. Submissions due by 5 p.m. on Friday June 27 and entry is free. Guidelines and application materials can be found at the NCCCA website at plattsburgharts.org. Entries will be judged by a panel of diverse individuals representing businesses, the travel and tourism sector, artists and arts professionals, county and city officials, and non-profit organizations. Winners will receive a prize as well as have their art displayed publicly throughout the Adirondack Coast region on posters, magnets, cards, websites, and other marketing ventures.

The NCCCA is open to visitors Tuesday through Friday, 10a.m- 5p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For a full list of juried shows, exhibition opportunities, community events, and classes, please visit the NCCCA’s website at: www.plattsburgharts.org.
