The Colonie Art League hosts three major shows each year:
The Holiday Show is held in December at The William K Sanford Library in Colonie. This is the largest event of the year for the league. All members are encouraged to participate. There are many cash prizes awarded at the Reception, which is open to the public. The work is displayed throughout the month of December. It is a very festive time! Members who take part in the show are also invited to submit two small works for the “Small Works Sale”. These pieces are hung in the highly visible area near the main entrance of the library.
The Pruyn House Show is held in April. This is a juried show. Once the judge makes their selection, the pieces are hung throughout the Pruyn House Mansion. The Mansion, the art and the beginning of Spring combine to make a beautiful afternoon for the reception. Cash prizes are awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. The art hangs for the month of April.
The Town Hall Show is graciously hosted by the Town of Colonie. The work is hung in the second floor gallery-like hallway. Cash prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. There is no fee for members to enter this show.
All shows offer the artists the opportunity to sell their work, if they wish. Whether you are new to the League or a seasoned member, the shows are a great way to get your work into the public’s view!
