Theme Show--"Celebrate!"

The Board voted on a theme show entitled, “Celebrate,” to be held at Fox Care in Oneonta in December. You have plenty of time to work on your entry.  Any medium is OK.  Photography is OK.  Work must be framed and wired for hanging.  Hanging of the show will be on Tuesday, December 1st at 10 AM.  As a courtesy, Susan Priest will bring your artwork to Oneonta that day.  You must bring her your entry no later than Monday, November 30th.  Call her at 607-746-3220 if you want to make those arrangements.  Take-down of the show will be on Monday, January 4, 2010 at 10 AM.  All participants in the show are responsible for picking up their artwork.
