Dreadful Art IV takes over the Pember for August

Some of the “worst art on the planet” is on the program for August at the Pember Library and Museum in Granville, NY. The fourth annual exhibition, “Dreadful Art IV” opens at First Friday on August 4 and will remain up throughout the month.

“It’s a contrarian showing that really highlights how difficult good art is produce and how worthy good art is,” mused Mary King, Pember board president. “Although the show is great fun, the works themselves typify the road of the artist and the struggle for excellence. Without bad, we wouldn’t have good…”

Ballots for “Best of the Worst” will be available at the Pember, with a prize given to the winning entry.

Open call for submissions runs until Thursday, August 3. Submissions may be dropped off until then. Works will can be purchased for nominal cost. For more information, call 518-642-2525 or 642-1515.

A special play list of recorded music to complement the décor will be part of the show.

First Friday runs from 7 to 9 pm, the first Friday of every month.
