Veterans Art Show

Artwork by Veterans will be on display to the public at the Canandaigua VA Medical Center on Wednesday March 7, 2012 from 10 AM to 1 PM.

Friday, January 13, 2012




 Artwork by Veterans will be on display to the public at the Canandaigua VA Medical Center on Wednesday March 7, 2012 from 10 AM to 1 PM in the Building #5 Auditorium .  It is estimated that over 40 pieces of art from among 15 different categories will be exhibited.  Categories consist of fine art such as painting, drawing, sculpture and photography; applied art that includes ceramics, woodcarving, needlework and leatherwork; and craft kits such as string art, fabric art and wood building.  Local artists will judge the artwork to determine first, second and third place in each category.  The first place winning pieces will advance on to the national level where they will compete with entries submitted by Veterans from other VA facilities around the country. 

 The competition is an annual event that provides Veterans receiving treatment at VA facilities the opportunity to participate in creative self-expression in art, creative writing, dance, drama and music as part of their therapy, and to gain recognition for these artistic accomplishments.  First place winners from the national competition will be invited to attend the National Veterans Creative Arts Festival, hosted this year by the VA Boston Healthcare System in Boston, Massachusetts the week of October 8-15 with the art exhibit and stage show performance on Sunday, October 14.

If you have any questions please contact Hank Riegal Recreation Therapy Supervisor Canandaigua VA Recreation Therapy Department at (585) 393-7371.
