Art is currently on display at Samaritan Medical Center, Cafe Mira, Bistro 108, Paddock Coffee House, and the Black River Valley Club. On May 3, new work will be put on exhibit and currently displayed work will be rotated throughout the aforementioned locations.

All artists are welcome to become a member of the North Country Arts Council in order to exhibit and sell work. Membership is $25 per individual per year. You can sign up online, via check or cash when you bring your work to Bistro 108, or by visiting Arts on the Square at 52 Public Square.
