Nigra Arts Center Expands Reach with “Dreaming of Spring” Show

Written By Editor on 2/14/23 | 2/14/23

Gloversville, NY – The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts has unveiled their “Dreaming of Spring” Art Show on display now until March 23 featuring 128 pieces of work in varied media by 95 different artists including individual and collaborative pieces.


This show in particular is already one of the Nigra Arts Center’s most successful displays and includes everything from paintings and photography to blown glass and fabric arts. With the second highest ever volume of art piece submissions; artists hailing from six different states, including NY, CA, CT, MA, MT and SD and an international submission from the UK; and a total of 31 new artists to the gallery, this show is one of the largest and most wide-reaching exhibitions the gallery has had in its almost eight-year history.


A Meet the Artist Opening Reception held on February 2 welcomed dozens of visitors, many of whom were visiting the gallery and the Arts Center for the first time. Awards were presented at the Reception for Best in Show for Painting, Photography and 3-D Art. Best in Show – Painting went to Minoa artist Kara Daviau for her acrylic painting “Redemption.” Best in Show – Photography was awarded to Fort Plain artist André Jones for her photograph “Magic.” And the winner of Best in Show – 3D Art was “Good Vibration,” a mosaic-adorned guitar created by artists from FLAME The Band and Transitions’ Imagine Academy of the Arts with guidance from local artists Linda Biggers and Heather Mattioni.


The Nigra Arts Center Gallery is open to the public Monday – Friday 9am – 6pm and Saturdays 10am – 1pm. We encourage artists and art lovers to enjoy this show in person and submit their vote for a Community Choice Award which will be announced at the end of the show’s run.
