Annual Partnership with Fenimore Art Museum to Highlight Character and Community ONEONTA, NEW YORK – Springbrook, a New York nonprofit serving individuals with developmental disabilities, is seeking art submissions for Our Character, Our Community, an art show hosted by Springbrook in support of a community that we can all share with patience and joy. Artists are encouraged to submit artwork inspired by the idea of personal character, and the power of each individual to shape the community we call home. As part of Springbrook’s mission, they encourage community members to be kind and considerate, to be inclusive and informed, to be patient and pleasant, and to be thoughtful and brave—all characteristics that have the potential to build up another person. Submissions of drawings, illustrations, paintings, or photos should include a simple artist’s statement about the piece. In order to include as many artists as possible, only one piece per artist will be accepted. Works will be displayed in the Community Gallery at the Fenimore Art Museum throughout the month of April, in honor of Autism Awareness Month. The submission deadline is Monday, March 25. For further details and to submit your art, please complete the mandatory entry form on Springbrook’s website, www.springbrookny.org/OurCharacter. For any questions, contact Kira DeLanoy, Director of Marketing & PR at 607.286.7171 Ext 287 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The exhibition will occur April 2 – April 28, 2019, at The Fenimore Art Museum, Community Gallery located at 5798 NY-80, Cooperstown, NY 13326.
