First Congregational Church of Canandaigua, UCC
Women Artists of the Finger Lakes IV: A Contemporary Show &
Friday, May 30th & Saturday, May 31st from 11AM-5PM and Sunday, June 1st from
The First Congregational Church, located at 58 North Main Street in Canandaigua, is proud to present
WOMEN ARTISTS OF THE FINGER LAKES IV: A CONTEMPORARY SHOW AND SALE, being held
from May 30th to June 1st. This sixth annual art show is an example of our congregation's commitment
to caring for Canandaigua and the larger Finger Lakes community. Our church continues to support
music in the community by hosting many concerts throughout the year and has now added the art show
to its offerings. Nearly fifty women artists, who work or reside in the Finger Lakes, will be participating
in this juried show. Over one hundred works, not seen at last year's show, will be selected.
It is in keeping with the history of this area that we feature women artists as women have been a part
of the historical significance of our community: Mary Clark Thompson, Susan B. Anthony and the
Women's Hall of Fame participants, to name a few. We want to honor those female artists who are
preserving our beautiful surroundings through their work.
We are pleased to offer an appropriate balance of water colors, oils, sculptures, photographs, pastels,
acrylic, enamel painting, pen and ink, and charcoal drawings. A "Best of Show" award will be given, as
well as ribbons and certificates of merit.
Admission for the show is $5.00 and all proceeds will be used to benefit the preservation of this historic
building which has been recorded in the Library of Congress for the church's historic and architectural
The hours for the show are: Friday and Saturday 11:00AM - 5:00PM and Sunday 10:00AM - 3:00PM
