Art Exhibit and Reception
**CALLING ALL LOCAL ARTISTS**
The Johnstown Historical Society seeks submissions from local artists for an exhibit August 17, 2019. We are looking for submissions of visual art in the following mediums: photography, painting, drawing, or sculpture. The subject of your submission should be your favorite historic place in Johnstown whether it is architecture, landscape, monument or another piece of Johnstown history that you love. All submissions need to be framed and ready to be hung for display. All submissions will be considered a loan to the Johnstown Historical Society and will be returned within 30 days of the reception date. All ages are welcome. City residence is not required. Submissions must be completed by August 10, 2019 and you must register no later than July 6, 2019.
On August 17, a reception will be held at James Burk’s Inn at 200 South William Street, Johnstown, NY from 6pm to 9pm where we will display and celebrate your work and the history of Johnstown with the general public. All artists will receive free admission for 2 to the reception.
Join us for an evening of art and history! The Johnstown Historical Society will have on display works of art created by citizens of Johnstown and its surrounding communities that feature places and architecture with significant history. Help us celebrate Johnstown's rich history through the eyes of its creative community!
All proceeds from this event will help fund the costs of maintenance and restoration to the Historical Society's three properties including James Burk's Inn where the reception will take place.
Refreshments will be served.
