Calls for Entry....Artists take heed!

Happy Friday to you! Today we are bringing you 4 Calls for Entry for Visual Artists. Take a look at these and shoot for the stars! CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The Jackson Parish Museum & Fine Arts Association is currently booking solo and group exhibits for the Winter/Spring 2015 season. We are a small museum but do have specific criteria and guidelines so potential artists must apply before being approved for a show. Artists who are residents or natives of Louisiana will be considered first, with Jackson Parish artists getting priority. This is a family-oriented arts association so artists with adult themes need not apply. Spots are limited. For more information please contact museum manager Leah Beth Johnston at jacksonparishmuseum@gmail.com.
