Fence Show 2015 | 50th Anniversary
May 22 – June 27, 2015 | First Floor Galleries

The Fence Show is an annual opportunity for all Arts Center members to display their work in our galleries. This year, we accepted and displayed 382 pieces, including paintings, drawing, photography, fiber arts, stained glass and sculpture. There is also a separate category for young artists in grades K-12. Julie Lohnes, Curator of Art Collections and Exhibitions at Union College, served as this year’s juror. Lohnes has curated a smaller show from the Fence Show called the Fence Select, which will be on display for several weeks after the salon style show is dismantled. Best in Show and Runner-up awards will be announced at the reception on May 29th.
