2018 Fulton Montgomery Art Show Call for Artists

Show Dates: April 11 – May 14, 2018
Submission Deadline: March 18, 2018


Exhibition Details:
The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts is pleased to announce its second annual Fulton Montgomery Art Show, featuring only the work of artists living and working in New York’s Fulton and Montgomery Counties. This show and sale is a recreation of the former Fulton County Art Show that the Congregational Church in Gloversville hosted for many years. The Fulton Montgomery Art Show will display submissions from individual and group artists working in all media alongside the work of a special guest artist and pieces by student artists from the Fulton/Montgomery region’s schools.

The featured artist of this show is Rhea Costello, a painter and ceramic artist from Bleecker, NY. Her landscapes and wildlife paintings exemplify the Adirondack Rustic Art genre with their intricate detail and peaceful mood. Her ceramic work combines throwing pottery with carving to create imitations of leather and metal paired with sculptures of animals and elements of nature. A primarily self-taught artist, Costello has exhibited work at the Adirondack Rustic Expo, Southern Adirondack Art Show, Adirondack Rustic Furniture Fair, Lake Placid Lodge, Old Forge Center for the Arts, Adirondack Living Show, Western Design Conference in Cody, Wyoming, and many more distinguished galleries and shows.

All works must be submitted via the website www.OnlineJuriedShows.com.
