Please be sure to check out all of the work on display on our website and to cast your vote for our “People’s Choice Award” at www.tiogaartscouncil.org/regional-art-show. For every artwork sold, 80% of the sale will go to the individual artist and 20% will be used to fund TAC’s Art a la Carte program.

Art a la Carte is a free, arts-enrichment activity delivery program. Through a partnership with Tioga County Food for Families, TAC brings art activities and supplies to families who utilize Summer Meal Sites throughout Tioga County, N.Y. Traditionally, we have served Berkshire, Richford, and Waverly. With support from artwork purchases from Everyday Life, Every Day Art, we hope to expand this program to serve more parts of Tioga County.

We would like to give a special thanks to our Title Sponsor, M&T Bank, for making this year’s show possible. We would also like to thank our co-presenter, Cloud Croft Studios, for their continuous partnership in this endeavor and for being a champion of the arts in our community, as well as Nelson Development, LLC for supporting this show.

Enjoy Everyday Life, Every Day Art this September online, and discover the extraordinary within the ordinary with us.
