The Strand Center for the Arts and the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau are excited to announce this year’s Adirondack Coast ARTWays competition. The theme of this year’s Adirondack Coast ARTWays is the Battle of Plattsburgh Bicentennial. Two hundred years have passed since military forces battled for colonial rights off the coast of Plattsburgh and throughout the region. To commemorate these events the 2014 theme of ARTWays is honoring this rich history by inviting artists to reinterpret these events through creative expression.

The opening reception was held at the Strand Center for the Arts at 23 Brinkerhoff Street in Plattsburgh Friday September 5th from 5 to 8 p.m. Organizers were on hand to answer questions about the project, posters featuring the winning submission were available, and free refreshments were provided. The unveiling of the winner, Shawna Armstrong, and official 2014 ARTWays poster happened at the opening event.

The Adirondack Coast ARTWays project is a collaborative effort between the Strand Center for the Arts and the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau celebrating the people, products, and places of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks through art.
