LAKE PLACID -The 24th Annual Cover Art Awards and Decentralization Grant Award Ceremony will be held on Friday, March 11, 2011 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. The categories of these awards will be: The Winner of the Cover of our 31st Annual 2011 Arts Directory, Best in Show, first Place in Photography, first Place in Painting, first Place in 3D, and Honorable Mentions. The Cover Art exhibit and Landscape Exhibit will tour from April 25 through the end of the year. The Cover artwork is the subject of a raffle, whose proceeds help to fund the program.
At this ceremony they will also be recognizing the recipients of our 2011 Decentralization Grants. The Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks has awarded $28,000.00 for nineteen arts and culturally related projects sponsored by fifteen organizations taking place in Essex and Southern Franklin Counties in 2011, through the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) Decentralization Program. This program, called Developing Community Arts (DCA) Grants Administrated by ACNA in Essex and Southern Franklin counties, distributes State art funds and encourages local involvement in funding decisions affecting community cultural organizations and programs. The next deadline for the 2012 DCA Grants will be in early October 2011.
Please come join us on this special evening. There will be appetizers and hors d'oeuvres served. For more information about the ceremony or any of the art shows or grant programs contact us at 962-8778. You can also email Caroline Thompson at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
