SAS show at the Katbird Shop

The Schenectady Art Society (SAS) has a juried art show on exhibit during March at The Katbird Shop – 425 Liberty St. in downtown Schenectady.

Editor’s Note: the original posting about the Art Show has been edited at the request of Saratoga artist Chris O’Leary, who was an entrant in the show.  If appropriate, I will clarify the details given in the first version of this posting in the near future.

The first juried art Show co-sponsored by The Katbird Shop and SAS is on display at the Shop throughout March.   With the Show open to both members and non-members, the judges accepted 27 paintings by eleven artists.  The reception for the exhibit was held on Saturday afternoon, March 6th.  As part of the festivities, the First Place, Second Place and Third Place awards were announced.  They went, respectively, to pieces by Robin Rosenthal, Helga Prichard, and Betty Bumgarner.

I urge you to see the paintings and enjoy the wares — old and new — of  The Katbird Shop.  While there, you can vote for your favorite to help determine the People’s Choice Award.
