Plans are in high gear for the 9th annual Remington Arts Festival, Canton’s celebration of art excellence in the North Country. This year TAUNY is partnering with the St. Lawrence County Arts Council and the St. Lawrence County Historical Association to coordinate the event.
Festival fun and activities will take place in and around the Canton Village Park on Saturday, October 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (In the event of bad weather, all Festival events will be moved to indoor locations around the park.)
This year’s featured artist, Caroline Bigtree, will be found demonstrating traditional Iroquois beadwork under a big tent in the park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A member of the Mohawk Nation of Akwesasne, Bigtree is a master of a spectacular style of raised beadwork perfected by the Mohawk and Tuscarora women, which involves sewing several rows of tiny, translucent beads to create a three-dimensional shape. A self-trained artist, she has taught at the Ononadaga Indian School and the Akwesasne Museum, and she will be eager to talk demonstrate and talk about her tradition.
Also adding to the Remington festivities will be The Fiddlers Three—Don Woodcock and Gretchen and Rebecca Koehler—who will perform in the park from 2 to 4 p.m. Considered among the best fiddlers in the Northeast, their concert will include waltzes, jigs, hornpipes, reels, and breakdowns—woven in and out of melody and three-part harmony.
Festival goers can start the day with the Remington 5K run then enjoy the art show in the park, tours of historic Canton in horse-drawn wagons, and old-time games in period dress-ups for children. The St. Lawrence County Historical Association will present a special Remington exhibit and middle- and high-school age students can enter their artwork in the student art competition.
The Remington Arts Festival is sponsored by the Village and Town of Canton and coordinated by the St. Lawrence County Arts Council, the St. Lawrence County Historical Association, and Traditional Arts in Upstate New York (TAUNY). North Country Public Radio is Media Sponsor for the Festival.
Complete information and a schedule of events are available on the Festival website—www.remingtonartsfestival.com.
