112 Walton Street
Alexandria Bay NY 13640

Macsherry Library on Saturday, Feb. 8, will host the 11th annual Heart of Winter Art Show and Chocolate Reception in the community gallery.

Artists are invited to submit pieces representing the heart of winter. The show will hang from Feb. 8-15 in Macsherry Library's gallery. All artwork must be brought to the library by noon on Feb. 5.

In addition to visual art, writers of original Haiku, short poems, and essays (one page or less) are being accepted for display. For the sake of consistency and readability, all written works will be reprinted and hung with the show. Written works are due at the library by Feb 3.

Artwork may be removed during library hours after Monday, Feb.

There will be a few Peoples Choice Awards for different categories. There will be a decadent assortment of chocolate desserts to sample while enjoying the display.  There will also be a Valentine’s day crafts table for “kids of all ages”. This year will also feature a guitar performance followed by lessons in the meeting room with Gary Waltz. As with most Macsherry Library events, there is no fee to attend.

If you would like to help behind the scenes or need more information, contact Sue-Ryn Burns   at (315) 482-2985 or Cecilia Thompson at (315) 777-3385. Artists interested in submitting work can print out this form to be brought along with pieces to library:
Macsherry Library is located at 112 Walton St., Alexandria Bay, N.Y.
