By Staff Report | Entertainment

MALTA — The Malta League of Arts will host its fourth annual ‘Arts Attitudes’ art show June 13–15 featuring local artist Regis Brodie, a renowned ceramicist, sculptor, and painter. A Professor Emeritus at Skidmore College, Brodie also lectures on topics ranging from kiln building to insights on the creative process. He will offer a brief talk about his work on opening night, June 13 at the Round Lake Auditorium.

The three-day event highlights a wide range of local and regional artists. The exhibit’s opening night June 13 features a champagne reception with live music and a silent auction from 6-8:30 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, the exhibit is free and open to the public. Artwork will also be for sale.

“This has become a popular annual event,” said Heidi Parker, Malta League of Arts’ vice president. “Each year, ‘Arts Attitudes’ grows exponentially and we anticipate a big turnout. The depth of artistic talent in our community is impressive and the Malta League of Arts is delighted to share it with the public.”

‘Arts Attitudes’ will exhibit over 35 artists’ work, including paintings, photography, and sculpture. Malta League of Arts said the response from artists was overwhelming, filling every available space early in the planning process. In addition, each show includes a collection from one featured artist.

Thursday’s opening reception June 13 at 6 p.m. features champagne, hors d’oeuvres, and live music. Silent auction items are also available. Once again, ‘Arts Attitudes’ will be held in the historic Round Lake Auditorium.

“We’re returning to the Round Lake Auditorium again this year,” Parker said. “It’s a unique venue and a very creative place to exhibit art. We’ve had lots of positive feedback from both artists and attendees, and it’s great to see the local interest building for this event.”
