The North Shore Arts Alliance began working with Sensory owner Kevin Daughrity in October 2011 to create a series of themed group shows focussing on different aspects of our member artist's works. The first show last fall was an Abstract show featuring works by seven member artists. The abstract show was followed by a figurative show, a landscape show, a photography show and now a members' show. The next show will be a 3-D show curated by Mark Gillespie that will begin in January.
The North Shore Arts Alliance is a not-for-profit co-operative marketing, promotional and membership organization working on behalf of artists in Chautauqua County. The organization seeks to foster an environment where art strengthens our county's image, economic vitality and quality of life.
