The Fulton-Montgomery Art Show is a re-creation of the long-held Fulton County Art Show at the First Congregational Church in Gloversville. This show no longer exists, so, the Nigra Arts Center resurrected and expanded it.
The show will hang through June 5. The public is welcome to view the winning pieces, as well as, the rest of the artwork in our Community Gallery Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The show was made possible thanks to Saratoga Arts with a Community Arts Grant funded by the state Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state Legislature.
