Barclay Hosts Fourth Annual Show in Partnership with the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce

Artists from the 120th Assembly District are once again invited to participate in Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay’s annual Local Landmarks and Landscapes visual art exhibit. This is the fourth annual exhibit designed to showcase the district’s local talent, historic landmarks and natural beauty. This year’s show will be juried in partnership with the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce and feature prizes from local restaurants for Best in Show and Honorable Mentions in both adult and youth categories.

“We have some of the finest waterways, unique landmarks, incredible landscapes, farmlands and parks. The artists who participate have such a talent for capturing these features and it is always inspiring to see the pieces they create. I am thrilled to partner with the chamber and local restaurants, and I look forward to meeting our local artists once again at the opening,” said Leader Barclay.

Watercolors, photography, original prints, pen and ink, acrylic, pencil, charcoal and other mediums that showcase the district’s natural beauty and history will be accepted for the show. Artists who participate should include contact information and a brief description of the work.

The 120th Assembly District includes Oswego County; the Cayuga County towns of Ira, Sterling and Victory; and the Jefferson County towns of Adams, Ellisburg, Lorraine and Worth. A map can be viewed at
