Pushing Boundaries

September & October, 2023

Reception First Friday October 6th

5 to 7 pm

Cortland Arts Connect invites the community to enjoy a new exhibit sponsored by the Picture House called "Pushing Boundaries" in the first floor Art Gallery of the McNeil Building, 19 Main Street, Cortland, from September 8th through October. The McNeil Gallery is open to the public during regular business hours. 

One of the defi
ning characteristics of artists is their innate curiosity and eagerness to explore, to push their individual boundaries.  The creator determines how far they wish to explore new territory.  There is no right or wrong here, and no strict rules apply as to what is considered abstract art or digital art. Our hope is that participants and viewers alike gain new insights into these two genres!


A reception is planned for First Friday, October 6, from 5 to 7 pm.

McNeil Building Gallery is located on the first floor at 17 Main Street Cortland. The exhibits are open to the public during business hours. 

Guthrie Medical Center and other sponsored exhibits

The McNeil Gallery is located in the first floor entry passageway at 19 Main Street.  (Cortland Arts Connect maintains office space in that building.)  Artworks can be displayed on both sides of the gallery; each side is approximately 40 feet long.  Generally the area can hold 30-40 pieces, depending on size.  Options for this space can be for a single artist, two artists (one on each wall), or a group show.  McNeil Gallery shows are rotated on a 2 month basis.  A poster with information about a current show is displayed in the window facing Main Street.  The Cortland Standard publishes a Community Living article for each opening.   Artists may include sale prices with their works.

The Guthrie gallery is located in their staff cafeteria.  There are approximately 31 feet of wall space.  Currently, exhibits are rotated on a 6 month basis.  Guthrie personnel participate in reviewing artworks submitted for consideration.  Sale prices are not permitted in the display but the artist’s contact information can be included with the biographical information that is displayed with the artworks.

Deadlines: Proposals are reviewed on a quarterly basis. These dates are: March 31, June 30, Sept 30, Dec 31. Artists will be notified of acceptance 2 weeks after the deadline.
