We had a very good meeting last night. We are well on our way to getting our first show launched. The date is July 16th through August 23rd with an opening reception on July 19th. This will be at Boone County National Bank, who is also supply the People's Choice Award. Thank you!
The theme is Bridges of Boone County and open to all artist. The fee for entry is only $10...unless you are a member and then it is $5. We will have prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places as well.
To go along with the show Daniel Boone Library-Southern Boone County Branch is going to them their Legomania, July 14th to match the theme of the show. The winning creation will be displayed with the art show. Plus our group will put together a nice basket of art supplies for the child that makes the bridge that is chosen.
Also, I think the Historical Society will have some stuff at the show as well to help place the bridges and give us a little history.
All in all it should be fun...definitely a learning experience.
For my first post to my first blog...let's talk about our very first show coming up in July. This won't be the first time we have displayed as a group (did that last year at the Ashland Fall Festival) but it will be the first time we have done it as a juried show with the public invited to participate. We don't have a lot of details yet other than the theme, which is "Bridges of Boone County". We are celebrating all the old bridges located in the Boone County area and are asking that the submitted works be on this subject. Here are some pictures I took last week to get you started:
