National Preview Party & Gallery Talk – Friday, July 15th

Everyone is invited to attend the annual gala Preview Party and awards ceremony to herald the opening of the 76th Annual National Juried Art Exhibition! The opening reception Preview Party, catered by Danny’s Main Street Market, will be held Friday, July 15th from 5p.m. to 7p.m. at the Cooperstown Art Association galleries featuring music by Mary Doherty. The prizes will be awarded at 6:00 pm that same evening. Just prior to the opening at 4pm, juror, Mary Anna Goetz will be offering an informal gallery talk & tour of the National Exhibition which is free & open to the public.

The 76th Annual National is a juried art exhibition organized by the Cooperstown Art Association, which is open to all fine artists. The show encompasses a wide range of media including drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. With entries from across the United States, the show is always both eclectic and stimulating. This year’s jurors were James Cox and Mary Anna Goetz of Willow, NY.

In addition to the National Exhibition, we will have a special exhibition case featuring the work of this year’s Cooperstown Art Association Scholarship Award Winners. The scholarship winners are Izzy Owen of Worcester Central School and Alexis Lanza of Gilbertsville-Mt. Upton Central School.

We are very excited to offer a limited edition full-color poster commemorating our 76th Annual National Juried Show! The 11×17 poster features images of all 103 pieces that were accepted this year by jurors James Cox and Mary Anna Goetz. Posters are available at the CAA for a donation of $5 each or can be ordered through our website at All proceeds benefit the Cooperstown Art Association and our Prize Fund which provides monetary awards for our Regional and National Juried shows.

The 76th Annual National Exhibition will be on display in all three galleries of the CAA from July 15th through August 19th. Don’t forget to stop in our sales gallery which features an everchanging array of gems by member artists and artisans.
