The winners of the Caroga Arts First Annual Photography Contest will be displayed in an exhibition at the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts from May 4, 2021 through June 26, 2021. The show will feature fifteen photographs from the Southern Adirondack Park depicting life and nature in the Caroga Lake area, and scenes from the Sherman’s Park experience. The show will feature works from winners Jenny Smith and Jason Waddle, both of Caroga Lake; Paul Valovic, Johnstown; James McLaughlin, Queensbury; Bob Buck, Fort Plain; Denise Scalzo, Owego; and Lorie Rosenberg, Pine Lake.
The show will be available for public viewing at the Nigra Arts Center, 2736 State Highway 30, Gloversville. The Arts Center is open weekdays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. In addition, the photos have been curated into a calendar that can be purchased beginning in June through the Caroga Arts Collective. In July, the photographs will be displayed at Sherman’s Park and made available for auction on August 21, 2021.
Proceeds from the Caroga Arts First Annual Photography Contest and auction support the Caroga Arts Collective, an organization that seeks to reimagine the Caroga experience through interactive collaborations among artists of all genres and the community. This year the Collective will be holding the 10th Anniversary of its Caroga Lake Music Festival from July 24 through August 21, 2021 while also celebrating the 100th Anniversary of its home at Sherman’s Park.
