are seeking artists for the 2010 "Palettes of Keuka". Now in its 4th year this event has been well received drawing terrific response from local residents and tourists alike. The event provides a venue for experiencing Art both inside and out at various locations in Hammondsport and surrounding Keuka lake. Artists are provided with large "Artist Palette" shaped backgrounds and encouraged to paint what they will, (which opens the door to a diverse and interesting assemblage of subject matter).
This event is aimed at two goals specifically.
First and foremost, residents and visitors to our area can experience more art by simply stumbling upon these "palettes" as they travel through the area or by following a map showing each location. The map, that is provided at each palette location as well as in the Hammondsport visitor's center, also features a puzzle which can be solved using clues found at each palette location. Completed puzzles can then be entered into a drawing for prizes.
Secondly, Money's raised from the sale of these palettes at the end of the summer are used to support and encourage the arts in Hammondsport and the surrounding region. The art fund is administered by the Hammondsport chamber of commerce and is used for such things as purchasing supplies for summer youth art programs and sponsoring event art poster competitions, etc.
