'Beyond the Barrel' looking for artists

NIAGARA FALLS — The Niagara Arts and Cultural Center is once again hosting its Beyond the Barrel exhibit at the Pine Avenue facility — but it needs a few more artists for the show.

The annual Beyond the Barrel Art Exhibition in the main gallery will have its opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. June 22 at the NACC and will feature music by the Tripi-Daniels Duo . In addition, acclaimed local artist Paula Sciuk, who is a member   of the Buffalo Society of Artists, will be featured in a solo exhibit in the Garden Gallery.

This year’s exhibition does not have a particular theme; therefore, it is open to all artistic interpretations of all mediums   and genres. The judge for the exhibition will be John Massier who is the visual arts curator at Hallwalls Contemporary Art   Center in Buffalo. Digital entries received via email to bob@thenacc.org by May 31 will be considered for use on the exhibition post card announcement.
