The community arts festival that bear his name this year examines Frederic Remington’s work in a special exhibit, "The Artist and the General: Frederic Remington Illustrates the Indian Wars," at the St. Lawrence County Historical Association. TAUNY is partnering with the historical association and the St. Lawrence County Arts Council to coordinate the Remington Arts Festival, Canton’s celebration of art excellence in the North Country, which takes place in and around the Canton Village Park on Saturday, October 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The historical association’s exhibit opens at the Silas Wright House (3 East Main Street, Canton) Friday evening, October 1, with an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. The exhibit features fifteen Remington prints commissioned to illustrate the book Personal Recollections of General Nelson A. Miles. The images depict the general's experiences in the American West fighting the Indian Wars from 1869 to 1890 and his encounters with many of the most noted Indian leaders of the era, including Chief Joseph, Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, and Geronimo.
Two presentations will take place at the St. Lawrence County Historical Association in conjunction with the exhibit opening. On Thursday, September 30, at 12 noon, the Brown Bag Lunch program will feature an exhibit preview and a lecture by St. Lawrence County Historian Trent Trulock. The presentation, "The Indian Wars in the West: An Overview," will provide the general background for General Miles and Frederic Remington's experiences in the West during the late 19th century.
On Friday evening at 6, as part of the opening reception, Trent Trulock will again offer his “The Indian Wars in the West” presentation. The exhibit will be open on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. open.
Festival-day events begin on Saturday, October 2, with the Remington 5K run at 9 a.m., followed by a day filled with family activities including: the art show in the park, tours of historic Canton in horse-drawn wagons, old-time games in period dress-ups for children, and a student art competition for middle- and high-school age students. Festival Featured Artist, Iroquois raised bead worker Caroline Bigtree will be in the park from 10 to 4 demonstrating her art and The Fiddlers Three—Gretchen and Rebecca Koehler and Don Woodcock—will present a concert in the park from 2 to 4.
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.
