Date: 3/7/17 7:51 pm From: George R. Hoelzeman <vogel...> Subject: Art for the Birds III
Art for the Birds III, an exhibit of bird themed works in any media, will be held at the Rialto Gallery in Morrilton from April 28 through May 8. I will then move the works to various other venues around Morrilton so that they get maximum exposure without risk of damage from renters at the Rialto.
We are going to try to organize some prizes for Best of Show, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. If we get enough sponsors we'll even include the Vox Populi award ('voice of the people', meaning you get to vote at the reception).
The reception for this exhibit is being planned for Saturday evening 6 May at 6:00-8:00pm. We are planning to have live music, food, a presentation and awards.
To help raise money for the reception we will actually need to charge an entry fee for this competition. $10 for the first entry and $5/entry for the next two with a maximum of 3 entries per artist. Anyone who is willing to 'sit' the Gallery during the week so it can be open to the public for a few hours will have their fee waived.
Also, in order to try to organize a little better, I have an entry form that I'd like to use for this one.
We can hang around 50 works in the Rialto Gallery, so we're encouraging everyone to enter this exhibit. PM me with an e-mail address to get the entry form.
