LPCA Open Juried Art Show

Gallery Hours: Wed-Sat 1-5pm

Join the LPCA as we celebrate the talents of our regional artists.

The LPCA is proud to showcase the art of the region and beyond in the Annual Open Juried Art Exhibition. This LPCA tradition will feature a variety of paintings, drawings, sculpture, assemblage and photographs. Artists are welcome to submit work in any style, genre, or subject matter – we're looking to highlight the best that an artist has to offer and celebrate the talent that lies in and around New York's North Country and beyond.

This show will be available for viewing both in-person during our gallery hours and online. The online component will go live in November.
