The submission deadline is Saturday, December 7th, 11:59 pm. Please submit online through https://slcartscouncil.org/exhibits/ 


This exhibit is curated by Sharon H.J. Cheng, an artist working with SLC Arts through the Creatives Rebuild New York grant program. Sharon has put together a series of Town Hall exhibits with the intention of offering a more accessible exhibit series for our creative community. 


Artwork may be created using any 2D medium. Framing, matting, etc is not required as SLC Arts plans to handle installation as a way to make this exhibit more accessible to the community.

There is no jury fee required for this exhibit. 


The opening reception for this exhibit will be held on Thursday, December 19th at 5pm at the Potsdam Town Hall. Attendance is not mandatory but strongly encouraged. Artists will be given the opportunity to discuss their work. If you have any questions regarding this exhibit, please contact Kat Dinneen at kat@slcartscouncil.org.
