Roberson Museum and Science Center Art Exhibit

BINGHAMTON -- Fifty artists from across the Southern Tier showcased their best work today.

The Roberson Museum and Science Center hosted its 2013 Roberson Regional Art Exhibition, with a total of 71 original pieces.  There were oil paintings, sculptures, photos, and graphite drawings.  Artists were selected for  first, second, and third place awards, and cash prizes.  We spoke with the third place winner, who says her emotions inspired her award-winning drawing.

"My family and friends told me that this art show was going on and so it's kind of on a whim. I just decided that since I was going to be home for the summer, I mine as well submit some work. It's a really pleasant surprise, It's a great show and I'm happy to have my art in the show," said Kirby Lowenstein, Third Place Winner.

"Roberson's mission is to provide Exhibition in art, history, and science and what a great way to present art in this region but to include regional artists themselves," said Terry McDonald, Executive Director at Roberson.

If you missed out Sunday, you can still go view the artwork at the museum until October 27th.
