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.
In the "odd" years, it is a group show of artists who have competed to show in the exhibition. A Best of Show winner is selected from this exhibition, and in the following "even" year, this winning artist has a solo exhibition.
This event is produced by the Tri-County Arts Council in collaboration with Jamestown Community College, and the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation, and made possible by an endowment from the estate of F. Donald Kenney.
