We’re celebrating a prize-winning third annual Arts Fest last week with 50 vendors and hundreds in attendance.
Prizes were awarded to three winners, including two gift baskets each with a variety of gifts from the vendors and a collection of art supplies for a budding artist.
We also had a ribbon cutting and open house at the gallery downtown with Tunes in June as our backdrop.
We’re turning our focus now to summer fun with Arty Day Camp, July 15-19.
“Charlotte’s Web” rehearsals are getting started for an Aug. 16-18 performance weekend.
We’ve kicked up the pace on our Community Mural Project to be ready for your help painting at the next Harborfest, July 26-28 and we have new plans for a Plein Air Art Competition in mid-August. Details about that coming soon!
There are only two more Digital Photography 101 classes: Tuesday June 18 and 25 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. They are taught by Kendra Matott, CNY Arts Center’s studio arts coordinator and mixed media artist.
June 18 get in “Focus!” Learn how and where to focus in a photograph and learn about depth of field (how your aperture affects what is in focus).
