Harvest Festival

Saturday, September 24th.  We need more participation from our members this year or we will have to give up our wonderful large space in front of the County Building.  We pay extra for this space and we need you to take advantage of this exposure opportunity and the chance for great art sales.  If we don't get your support this year we will have to economize and reserve a smaller space for the artists that regularly attend.  Celebrate the beginning of Fall and join us for this fun event.  Call Susan Priest (607) 746-3220 to reserve a space and for more information.  See the Shows and Exhibits page for pictures from the Harvest Festival.
