Regional art show planned for July

GLOVERSVILLE — The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts, 2736 Route 30, will have its fifth annual Regional Art Show, sponsored by Nathan Littauer Hospital and Nursing Home. This exhibition, formerly the Fulton-Montgomery Art Show, will feature the works of artists who live or work in Fulton, Montgomery and neighboring counties. The art in all media and from any artist within the region is welcome, according to a news release.

The art show will be on display from June 3, to July 8, and will hang alongside a special showcase of the work of a featured artist.

The artists can submit work until April 25, through: www.OnlineJuriedShows.com. This is not a juried show, but this website is used for ease of submission and selection by the curators. The artists who want to submit should visit the website and scroll down until they find the 2021 Regional Art Show or visit https://bit.ly/3ryksK4, where more submission guidelines are available.
