National Preview Party – Friday, July 13th


Everyone is invited to attend the annual gala Preview Party and awards ceremony to herald the opening of the 77th Annual National Juried Art Exhibition! The opening reception Preview Party, catered by Sherry Wyckoff of Something Wonderful Catering, will be held Friday, July 13th 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. 

The 77th 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 representing 21 states, the show is always both eclectic and stimulating. This year’s juror was Tony Reinemann of New York City.

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 Winner.  The 2012 scholarship winner is Emily Wilmot of Cherry ValleySpringfield Central School.

We are very excited to offer a limited edition full-color poster commemorating our 77th Annual National Juried Show!  The 11x17 poster features images of all 151 pieces that were accepted this year by juror Tony Reinemann.  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 77th Annual National Exhibition will be on display in all three galleries of the CAA from July 13th through August 17th. Don’t forget to stop in our sales gallery which features an everchanging array of gems by member artists and artisans. The galleries are located in the Village Library Building, 22 Main Street, diagonally across the street from the Baseball Hall of Fame.  Gallery Hours are Mon.-Sat. 11a.m.-4p.m. and Sunday 1-4p.m.  Free and open to the public.
