Patrons who visited the Massena Public Library during the first week of the exhibit were also eligible to vote.
This year’s Spring Art Exhibit was MAA’s third completely open art exhibit.
It was open to all artists, all media, and all subjects.
It was not a juried show – everything that was submitted was included in the show.
Over 100 pieces of artwork were submitted; many were from artists who haven’t previously exhibited in Massena.
