The “Arts in the heART” Gallery, CNY Arts Center’s premier location for enjoying some of Central New York’s innovative art, is launching its newest event: TH3. Every third Thursday of the month, the Gallery will be hosting a Happy Hour, where community members can meet their artists in a social atmosphere.
The first TH3 will kick off Thursday, September 19 from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. The event takes place at the Gallery, which is located in the heart of Fulton, on 47 S. First St., across from the city’s gazebo.
“The monthly TH3 gives Fultonians and our neighbors a regular reason to stop by and see what’s new at the Gallery,” said Bonnie McClellan, gallery director. “We have over 25 local artists’ work on display, which they regularly “change up,” so frequent visits are recommended. We’ll have free beverages and food throughout the evening and welcome discussions about the art and about purchasing a favorite piece—a layaway plan is now available.”
The gallery has also announced its September Artist of the Month, Sandra Dowie, of Firefly Studio in Sterling.
Sandra has many pieces of work featured in the gallery.
“Painting is my passion and an extension of me,” Sandra said. “My intention is to inspire beauty through color, form and light. I enjoy bringing mystery to my paintings and incorporating balance, rhythm and repetition through working with mixed media. I also enjoy adding objects to create movement, keeping the viewer’s eyes moving around the piece.”
The art center is also announcing its Volunteer of the Month for August, Candace Dreiling, gallery receptionist.
“Candace is a hardworking, dedicated volunteer, with just the right background of retail experience, management, and customer service to keep the Gallery running smoothly and efficiently,” said Nancy Fox, the center’s director. “Candace also serves as box office manager for CNY Arts Center theatre productions and is quick to take on extra projects. She has proven herself indispensable.”
