Arts Education Grant deadline

approaching

PLATTSBURGH — Artists teachers in the North Country can partner with a public school in Essex, Clinton or Franklin county and apply for an educational project involving students in grades kindergarten through 12. The application deadline is 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15.

Over the past year, changes have been made in the administration of arts grants in the North Country. The North Country Cultural Center for the Arts is administering the Decentralization Grant sponsored by the New York State Council on the Arts for Essex, Clinton and Franklin counties.

Guidelines and grant applications are accessible at plattsburgharts.org. One big change in the Arts Education Grant is that it is now the artist who applies, not the school. Applicants should call or email grant coordinator Kathy Recchia at 563-1604 or grants@plattsburgharts.org. Seminar attendance is not necessary if applicants contact Recchia for direct consultation.

PLATTSBURGH — The North Country Cultural Center for the Arts is looking for qualified and experienced artist teachers in all disciplines who are interested in offering courses or workshops at the center.

Interested artist teachers should contact NCCCA education coordinator Emily Owens at 563-1604 or by email at education@plattsburgharts.org.

LPCA hires new

executive director

LAKE PLACID — After an extensive search, the Lake Placid Center for the Arts has hired a new executive director.

James Lemons, currently general manager of the Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota, Fla., will join the LPCA in early December.

Lemons has a bachelor of Fine Arts in theater from Midwestern State University and served as the associate artistic director of Water Tower Theatre in Addison, Texas, before going to Florida. While at Water Tower, he co-founded the Out of the Loop Fringe Festival, a 10-day celebration of dance, theater, music and art.

Outgoing director Nadine Duhaime has been with the organization since 1986. “She has been an inspirational force in making the LPCA a vibrant community asset,” Nancy Rosenthal, board president, said in a news release. “This is a bittersweet time. It’s difficult to let Nadine go, yet exciting to bring James on board. We are confident that the LPCA will continue to flourish under new leadership.”
