More than $121,000 in art to be won at May 22 event
As part of its Finding Art in Nature event, Stone Quarry Hill Art Park in Cazenovia will be providing an opportunity for you to win the artwork of Fayetteville artists John Fitzsimmons, Sarah McCoubrey and Roy Simmons, as well as work by Manlius artist Bradley Hudson.
They are four of 41 renowned artists whose art can be won in contests of luck or skill on Saturday May 22. All told, the Art Park will be offering up more than $121,000 in art. The event takes place from 2 to 6 May 22. The rain date is Sunday May 23.
The winners of John Fitzsimmons' "End of the River", Bradley Hudson's "Dance of the Vanishing Fire" and Roy Simmons' "Untitled" artwork will be chosen at random as part of the festival's Selected Art Ticket drawings. One chance to win a Selected Artwork is included with each $50 General Admission ticket. Additional Selected Art Tickets can be purchased for $15.
Sarah McCoubrey's "Things by the Water" oil-on-panel painting is one of 16 artworks that can be won in the event's Treasure Hunt that takes place from 2:30 PM--4:30 PM. Medallions representing the art treasures (valued up to $15,000) will be hidden somewhere on Art Park grounds for seekers to find by following a series of clues. Event goers can participate in the Treasure Hunt by purchasing a $50 Treasure Hunt ticket after they purchase a $50 General Admission ticket.
