Fine Arts on the Lawn

There is still time to participate in the Cooperstown Art Association’s annual Fine Arts on the Lawn show to be held Labor Day Weekend on Saturday and Sunday, September 1 & 2. The event will run from 10a.m. – 5p.m. each day on the lawn and front porch of the CAA Building located at 22 Main Street in Cooperstown.  This show takes place in addition to the CAA’s upcoming new exhibits, the popular Annual Made in New York show “Style & Decor” and a solo show of paintings, “Between Cities” by Chad Grohman which begin on August 24th.         


We offer artists two options for showing and selling their work in Fine Arts on the Lawn.  1)  Artist members of the Cooperstown Art Association are invited to exhibit up to 5 framed original works on the front porch with sales and set-up taken care of by the CAA.  Unframed and shrink wrapped originals are also allowed with a flip rack.  No offset reproductions will be accepted.   Artists must include an inventory list  and artwork must be labeled on the front with the artist’s name, town, title, medium and price and be ready to hang.  Drop-off for porch exhibitors is Friday, August 31, 11-4p.m. and Saturday, September 1st, 8:00-9:00a.m. Pick-up is Sunday, September 2nd, 5-6p.m. There is a registration fee of $10 before September 1st and $15 the day of the show.  The CAA reserves the right to retain a 30% commission for all sales resulting from the show. 2)  Artists may also apply for a 10’x10’ tent space on the front lawn, where they will be responsible for their own display, sales and set-up. There is a $100 booth fee as well as a short application.  Please call 607-547-9777 or go to our website for more details.
