The Lake George Arts Project presented the Peoples Pixel Project, an evening of original short subject videos on Saturday, February 6 at the Rock Hill Bakehouse Cafe in Glens Falls.

Three finalists in each of six categories were screened, and emcee Mike Parwana presented each finalist with a “Pixel Award,”, an original handmade sculpture designed by the Chicken Coop Forge of Glens Falls. Each finalist also was awarded lunch for two at the Rock Hill Bakehouse and one-year membership to the Lake George Arts Project.

The February 6 screening and awards ceremony quickly sold out, so by popular demand, a second screening of the finalists’ films will be held at 7:30pm on Friday, February 19. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by phoning the Lake George Arts Project at 518.668.2616 or the Rock Hill Bakehouse at 518.615.0777.

All entries for the Peoples Pixel Project can also be viewed at the Lake George Arts Project in Lake George, where a continuous loop of the entries can be viewed during gallery hours throughout the month of February.

In addition, the finalists’ films will also be on view in the lobby of Aimee’s Dinner Theater in Glens Falls throughout the month.
