In celebration of its 30 year anniversary, the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts will give away a record 35 pieces of original art at its annual Art Giveaway fundraiser.
The fundraiser will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18, at Francesca’s Banquets and Catering in Ilion. The public is welcome; the suggested donation at the door is $5.
Artwork is represented in various mediums, including oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastels and photographs. Also included this year are pottery, soft sculpture and stained glass.
Subject matter is as close to home as the Overlook Mansion or the Adirondacks and as far away as Yosemite or Tokyo.
From landscape to waterscape to cityscape, farm to forest, mountain to meadow, a wide array of artwork offers a vision of the world around us through the eyes of local and regional artists.
The evening will include hearing some of those artists speak about their work and what inspires them. Light refreshments will be served.
