Competition: A Great Summer Project
Once again the teens of Fayette and surrounding counties can
enter ARTS Emerging Artists Competition where teens grades 6th " 12th
can win real money for their original art creations. Each summer ARTS sponsors,
with the underwriting of Mary Le and Arnie Johnson, an art contest featuring
our local teens recent art projects. Up to $3600.00 dollars will be given out
in prizes and the works of all participants will be shown and for sale in the
Ross Gallery for two weeks in August of this year.
Teens are encouraged to submit two pieces of original and
recent art for the contest. The idea is to encourage our teen artists to
continue their artistic development throughout the summer months independently.
Their entries will be judged by an objective jury. Awards are given for Best of
Show, $500; and then for each grade at 1st place -
$250, 2nd place - $125, and 3rd place - $75.
The contest is free
to enter. Teens can and must sign up on line at Click Here or call for an application at 979-378-2113.
Artwork must be delivered for the show and judging to ARTS Fayetteville location
by August 4th, 2015. The
Opening Reception and Awards presentation will occur on August 15th ,
2015 from 5 " 7 PM.
