The Seneca County Arts Council (SCAC) and the Artworks Gallery thanks the Bonafiglia Foundation for their grant that will allow us to promote Seneca Falls and the Finger Lakes area through the arts. SCAC received the $1,000 grant to fund a juried art show and a juried photo show at their Artworks Gallery in downtown Seneca Falls in 2024. The funds will be used to provide for professional jurors and awards for both shows. 


The juried art show will open on Friday, July 19th at 5:30 p.m. reception open to the public. The show will run through August 17th. The show is in coordination with the 175th anniversary of the Women’s Rights Convention. The show currently in planning stages will have a juror, awards, and application information to be announced in late May.

SCAC plans to promote the art of photography and the beauty of the local area with  this photo only show. Fall is the perfect time to showcase the end of our tourist season. The juried photo show will open on Friday, October 4 and run through October 26th.

Seneca County Arts Council supports the arts in the local area through its art workshops, art shows, gallery space and a scholarship program. Artworks Gallery shows the work of member artists, photographers, handcrafted jewelry, pottery, blown glassware, knitted and assorted crafts. Visit http://www.artsinseneca.org.
