CALL FOR ARTISTS: The Hornell Area Arts Council is looking for local artists to participate in our annual Maple Leaf Festival. This year we will again be using the Hornell Community Art Center on Broadway in Hornell. Set up begins Friday August 26th from 6-8 PM and the festival runs Saturday and Sunday. The council is requesting the following:
* Artists to paint/decorate a “Maple Leaf” for auction. Leaves will be delivered 4-6 weeks before the event and picked up 3 days before the event. Artists receive 50% of the “highest bid”. Minimum bid is $20.
* Artists to set up their artwork in “booth” style for the festival. Fee is $20 for non-members, no charge for members, and no charge for artists who decorate/paint one of our “Maple Leaves.”
For applications to either of these requests, please email Amy at
