GLOVERSVILLE — The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts, 2736 Route 30, is seeking artists for its 2019 Winter Art Show.

All artists are welcome to submit work of any theme or medium, according to a news release.

The artists who want to submit should visit the website and scroll down until they find the 2019 Winter Art Show. Further submission guidelines are available there.

Through the donations of supporters, the PNCFCA is able to offer monetary awards to outstanding submissions. All winners will also receive a membership to the arts center, which grants them access to special events and discounts on classes, workshops and future gallery submissions.

The fee for entry of up to three works is $15 for members of the PNCFCA or $25 for non-members. The artists can submit an additional two entries maximum for a fee of $7 each for members or $10 each for non-members.
