Your chance to get framed

Niagara Gazette — If you have some interesting old window frames laying around in the garage, recycle and reuse them for an art project that will benefit the restoration of one of the most historic buildings - the Lewiston Opera Hall, 736 Center St., Lewiston.  

Participants are invited to show off their talent and help generate funds to keep the Historic Lewiston Opera Hall in good repair as they decorate an old window in whatever medium they choose.  Windows can be any size up to 6 feet and can be found “curb shopping” or at Buffalo Re-Use. Windows that can be picked up for free at the art council office, 475 Ridge St.  Entries can use a window frame with or without the glass to create a variety of artistic décor.  Stained-glass murals can be created in window frames or with simulated stained glass using glass gels found in any craft store. Other options include painting or drawing on paper, making a collage, creating a mosaic tile design, embroidering, weaving, needlepoint, or combining mixed media, using costume jewelry, feathers, ribbons and more.

Participants can deliver their work to Lewiston Council on the Arts office, 475 Ridge St., Lewiston by Nov. 26.  Windows will be on display and for sale at the Tuscarora and Friends Gallery during the weekends of the Lewiston Christmas Walk, Dec. 1 and 2 and Dec. 8 and 9. 

Participating artists will be given a one-year membership to Lewiston Council on the Arts and a pair of complimentary tickets to the Marble Orchard Ghost Walks. The preview exhibit and opening reception will be held at 7 p.m. Nov. 30.

Those with extra window frames to donate are asked to drop them off at the Art Council office at 475 Ridge St., Lewiston.

Call Lewiston Council on the Arts at 754-0166 for more information.

Applications available on the art council website
