CAP-a-PALOOZA Art Sale Extraordinaire

This fun annual event is a major fundraiser for CAP.  Over 500 pieces of donated art are sold each year. Art is donated from the attics, basements and closets of community members resulting in a very cool assortment of vintage and contemporary art for you to come and buy! All work is priced to GO. Our goal is to have nothing left by the end of the sale, so come and find special treasures, holiday gifts, and perfect art for your walls.

Chris Walters (photographs)

"Out of Time"  From the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to the waters of Ithaca Falls, Chris Walters exhibit features long exposure photography that juxtaposes people against both the natural and human-made world. Chris works at CAP's counterpart in Corning, the Arts of the Southern Finger Lakes, and we are excited to show his work in the CAP ArtSpace.
