Peach Art Exhibit Drop-Off Day This Thursday...Art Talk Monday

Today's Art Talk Monday is by Laura Hunt Miller, NCLAC Executive Assistant. I hope everyone has his or her Peach Art Exhibit entries ready, because we are less than a week away from “check in day!”

Children can compete in one of three Youth Categories for $20 to $75; Ages 9 and Under, Ages 10 to 13, and Ages 14 to 17. Adults may compete in 5 categories for $50 to $150; Drawing, Painting, Photography, Original Crafts, and the Miscellaneous Categorythat covers everything from printmaking and collage work, to digital art works and more.

Youth entrants may submit a total of 2 works per a child, for $10. Adults may enter no more than 2 works per a Category, for $20 per a Category. Anyone with a current NCLAC membership may receive $5 off his or her entry fee. If your family has a NCLAC Family Membership, then each family member that enters a piece into the Peach Art Exhibit may receive $5 off!

If you want to enter work into the Peach Art Exhibit, bring your work to the Ruston Civic Center at 401 North Trenton Street, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. next Thursday, June 19th. If you do not already have an entry form filled out, there will be spare forms available at the Civic Center. Each work that is submitted must have a “Form A,” which will be given to the volunteers registering work into the show, and a “Form B,” which should be attached to your artwork in some way. If your piece is 2-dimensional please attach your form to the lower right back corner of your work.

Do not forget! ALL works that are intended to hang on the wall for display MUST HAVE a wire or sufficiently strong string (not hemp-like twine) properly attached to the back of the work. Duct tape and fishing wire are NOT proper methods or materials.  The example given here is the method we prefer entrants use to make sure their work does not fall off the wall during the show. Yes, is has happened before.
