Fence Show 2014

Fence Show 2014, Main Gallery

The Fence Show is an annual opportunity for all Arts Center members to display their work in our galleries. In 2014, we accepted and displayed 335 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, will serve as this year’s juror. Lohnes will curate 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.
