Be sure to check out all of the work on display and to cast your vote for the “People’s Choice Award” at www.tiogaartscouncil.org/regional-art-show. For every artwork sold, 80% of the sale will go to the individual artist and 20% will be used to fund TAC’s Art a la Carte program.
Art a la Carte is a free, arts-enrichment activity delivery program. Through a partnership with Tioga County Food for Families, TAC brings art activities and supplies to families who utilize Summer Meal Sites throughout Tioga County, N.Y. Traditionally they have served Berkshire, Richford, and Waverly. With support from artwork purchases from Everyday Life, Every Day Art, they hope to expand this program to serve more parts of Tioga County.
They would also like to give a special thanks to the Title Sponsor, M&T Bank, for making this year’s show possible. They would also like to thank the co-presenter, Cloud Croft Studios, for their continuous partnership in this endeavor and for being a champion of the arts in our community, as well as Nelson Development, LLC for supporting the show.
