Plattsburgh, NY (November 28, 2012) – The NCCCA Arts Center Holiday Member Show opens with a reception on December 7th from 5:30-7:30pm. The Holiday Member Show consists of works by local artists in watercolor, oil and acrylic paint, drawing, ceramics, sculpture and graphics. Pieces will be for sale and make wonderful holiday gifts.
The Opening Reception will also include a wine tasting from Vesco Ridge Vineyards, a local winery located in West Chazy. They will share four different wines, including a limited edition red table wine whose label features the latest ARTWays winning image “Adirondack Coast Harvest” by local artist Amy Guglielmo.
Youth will also be invited to participate in a holiday arts activity in the new Kids’ Creative Corner. This new addition to the gallery provides an opportunity for young arts enthusiasts to learn about and try mediums demonstrated in the show.
