Sculpture Trail

Sculpture Trail

CHERRY VALLEY ARTWORKS is happy to invite submissions for sculptures to be exhibited as part of the 2015 Cherry Valley Summer Sculpture Trail in beautiful and historic Cherry Valley, N.Y. The show will run from June 13 to October 17, 2015.

Proposals from established and emerging artists will be considered. Both existing and new sculpture may be submitted. Though the trail is primarily a venue for outdoor works there are a few storefront locations for works suitable only for indoor display. The exhibition will include invited and juried artists.

There is no application fee.

The 2015 Sculpture Trail is in it's fifth year. It has grown in size and quality of submissions with each year. Artists exhibiting in the last show were from 5 states and 4 countries with a predominance of New York state artists.

Cherry Valley, N.Y. is part of the beautiful and historic Leatherstocking Region known as home to the Fenimore Art Museum, The Arkell Museum, The Baseball Hall of Fame and The Glimmerglass Festival. These attractions, particularly the Glimmerglass Festival, bring many thousands of cultural tourists to the region. The Cherry Valley Museum, two of the area's finest restaurants, Artworks popular concert series and other performances at The Star Theater are all a draw for many visitors.

Cherry Valley Artworks will provide installation/de-installation support (including the use of a crane truck) and liability insurance. Some monetary assistance for moving expenses may be provided.

Self-guiding maps to the trail will be available in Cherry Valley and in select locations throughout the area. A QB code on the maps will connect visitors to our website which will in turn connect to Artist's websites. Exhibition cards will be widely distributed. The exhibit will be featured on the This Is Cooperstown website (the official Otsego County Tourism site) and will be part of the "Gardens and Mansions" Tour coordinated by Otsego County Tourism. Guided tours and a day of live music at and inspired by each sculpture will be a highlight of the event. Promotion of the show will be actively pursued through ads, calendar listings, radio spots as well as the above. Sales will be promoted and encouraged.
