BAINBRIDGE – The Jericho Arts Council (JAC) of Bainbridge is looking to sponsor 20 juried Artists for a month long, sidewalk exhibition of art.
For the 6th year, Artists will express their creativity, on unique Adirondack “Canoe Paddle Chairs” or upon petite child sized versions of the chairs. This year the theme is “Sunrise,Sunset” and diverse interpretations are welcome!
JAC will provide artists with the chairs, paint and a stipend of $125 for the adult chairs and $75 for the Children’s chairs. Cash awards of $50 to $100 will be granted in five categories. Artists will be promoted with bio’s on the JAC website as well as in a media conference, regional press releases, posters, social media and on maps of the Art Trail.
The art will be displayed on Bainbridge sidewalks from April 22 until Memorial Day weekend. For a month, photos of each piece of art will be posted on the website along with the opportunity for bidding in advance of the Live Auction to take place on Saturday, May 23 at the General Clinton Canoe Regatta.
Proceeds from the May 23 Art Auction will go to the Jericho Arts Council to support our Artists & Musicians and to create future events.
