Fulton-Montgomery County Art Show 2017
Saratoga Arts made this program possible with a Community Arts Grant
funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of
Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
The Fulton-Montgomery Art Show will feature works by artists that live or work in Fulton County or Montgomery County New York. Works by community artists will be accompanied by a showcase of student art from the schools in the two-county region. Community artists will be eligible for awards and student artists in grades 9-12 will also be eligible for specific award. The show is a recreation of a long-held show in Fulton County at the Congregational Church in Gloversville. This show no longer exists so we are expanding the show to include Fulton and Montgomery County. The show will run for a full month with a number of special events to encourage the public to visit and enjoy the artwork. Artist Barney Bellinger will be the shows featured artist.
