Southern Tier Biennial (STB) exhibitions celebrate the vitality and diversity of contemporary art in the Southern Tier region - the counties of Allegany, Broome, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Chemung, Steuben, Schuyler, Tioga, and Tompkins. A professionally juried contemporary art exhibition open to nine counties of the southern tier, it was founded in 2003 to make a measurable and positive difference for rural artists. The STB affords artists an opportunity to take part in the process of a professional art competition and be rewarded for those efforts. All of the artists’ statements and photographs of their work are on the STB website.
