2022 Local Landscapes and Landmarks Art Exhibit Planned

Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay Hosts 3rd Annual Show

Artists from the 120th Assembly District are once again invited to participate in Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay’s annual Local Landscapes and Landmarks visual art exhibition. This is the third annual exhibit that is designed to showcase the district’s local talent, historic landmarks and natural beauty. 

This year’s show will feature awards including Best in Show and Honorable Mention in both adult and youth categories. 

“This art show provides a venue for our talented and creative artists to really showcase our area’s natural scenery. People recognize that we have some of the finest waterways, best natural landscapes, farmlands and parks. Every year, the artists who participate capture these assets and showcase our area’s splendor with the pieces they create. It’s inspiring to see what they offer, and I look forward to this year’s show and to meeting some of our local artists once again,” said Leader Barclay. 

The 120th Assembly District includes the Oswego County towns of Albion, Amboy, Boylston, Constantia, Granby, Hastings, Mexico, New Haven, Orwell, Palermo, Parish, Redfield, Richland, Sandy Creek, Schroeppel, Scriba, Volney, West Monroe and Williamstown; the cities of Oswego and Fulton; the Onondaga County town of Lysander including the northeastern portion of the Village of Baldwinsville; and the Jefferson County town of Ellisburg.
