Natural Pigments Art Exhibition 

Hosted by: Clarion County Arts Council (CCAC) and Clarion Conservation District (CCD) 

Open to the Public Starting On: Thursday, August 1st, 2024 - Michelle's Cafe in Clarion, PA 

Reconnect with the natural world through art!

Artists are invited to enter a piece whose color is entirely added by using pigments created from local sources and made in the spirit of environmental awareness. This is the culmination of a series of events intended to educate local artists and the community on abandoned mine drainage (AMD) pollution and treatment and how the iron oxide pigments that have settled out of the water during treatment can be repurposed safely to create art. Artists are welcome to use additional pigments as long it is created from local sources

Due to the lack of sponsor interest, there will be no judging or prizes unless sponsors are acquired. It will be an art display and artists will have the option to sell their work with a commission of 30%. 

**Space is limited, if your piece is larger than 24×24 please message first.**

Pieces must be dropped off by July 29th or 30th at Hillary's Music & Art House ( 63 N 3rd Ave. Clarion, PA 16214) between 12:00pm-7:00pm. If you need to coordinate an earlier drop-off contact Hannah Bequeath using the contact info below. Pieces will be set-up on July 31st and will remain at Michelle's Cafe for a few weeks to showcase the work. The Clarion Summerfest event with the theme of "Art & Music" will occur on the weekend after opening day, August 2nd-4th 2024.
