Wheels Invitational Show

Artists' Opportunity: “Wheels,” a juried theme exhibition in the Small Gallery at Valley Artisans Market, 25 East Main Street (Rte. 372), Cambridge NY.

All 2- and 3D artists and artisans are invited to enter up to 3 pieces of work to be juried for this exhibition, scheduled for Friday, March 22- Tuesday, April 16. The show will coincide with the annual Tour of the Batttenkill bike rally held each year in Cambridge. This year's rally will be on Saturday and Sunday, the weekend of April 13-14. This nationally-ranked bike race, billed as the Queen of the Classics and “America's toughest one-day race,” draws several thousand racers and their families, as well as spectators, to Cambridge each year.

Works to be juried should be dropped off at the Valley Artisans Market on Wednesday, March 20, or Thursday, March 21, between 10 a.m. And 5 p.m. Artists will be notified via email/phone of their acceptance. Work that is declined must be picked up the next day, as VAM has little storage. Two-D work must be ready to hang, and there is no size limit. Three-D artists are encouraged to enter. VAM takes 40% of all sales.

There will be an Opening Reception for the exhibition on Saturday, March 23, 1-3 p.m..

Beginnings, Ends by Ian Creitz

Please join us for the opening reception of Beginning, Ends a show by our very own Ian Creitz tomorrow January 12th, in the small gallery from 3:00 pm to 6:00pm.

Ian is a native of Cambridge who has been photographing the Southern Washington County area and the Capital District for many years.   Ian has tried to "capture the contrast between natural and man-made to show how nature will ultimately overtake our own trappings when we leave them alone"  He has succeeded and his work is a beautiful mixture of darkness and light, urban decay and the beauty of the region we live in. 

Please join us for the opening and if you are not able to make it Ian's work will be on display through Sunday, February 17th.
