Public invited to reception for Palette art project on Sunday
HOLLEY – A public art project that has promoted businesses and local artists will wrap up on Sunday during a reception from 2 to 4 p.m. at Hickory Ridge Country Club.
The public is welcome to meet many of the artists who created paintings of local scenes and other subjects. Final bids will also be accepted for the artwork.
Some of the proceeds from the project will be used for art scholarships at the five school districts in Orleans County.
Artists created 73 palettes that have been on display in businesses throughout the county. The project is organized by the Orleans County Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber put a poster in each business window to indicate a palette on display. Shoppers have submitted bids to buy the artwork and they have voted on their favorite artwork. The project kicked off in May.
