Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site has issued a call for photograph submissions to be included in the 2019 art exhibit, “The Passage of Time.”
Photographers residing in New York State who want to showcase their work in a competitive, juried exhibition are encouraged to read the show description and submit original work within the theme by the deadline of May 15, 2019.
To recognize the ongoing commemoration of NYS Barge Canal heritage and historic Erie Canal, Schoharie Crossing is hosting this third annual exhibition of talented artists. This year the focus will be on photographs only. Jurors have accepted the task of reviewing the pieces and prizes will be awarded to those honored by the jurors.
Schoharie Crossing encompasses over two hundred acres and spans over three miles in length. From the western end of the site at the Aqueduct boat launch, across the Schoharie Creek and east to Yankee Hill Lock and the Putman Canal Store. The site contains portions of the original 1820’s Erie Canal as well as features two sets of double locks from the Enlarged Era Canal and is adjacent to the Erie Canal of today; the Mohawk River. Lock E12 at Tribes Hill on the river is situated close to the site and provides access to witnessing the newest century old canal of today.
Submissions can be made online. The exhibit’s opening celebration will take place during the Schoharie Crossing Canal Days festivities, on July 6th, and artwork will be displayed inside the Enders House until September 1st.
