Call for artists
The organizers of Art Fest 2009 are seeking entries for an exhibit which will showcase Johnson County artists later this year.
The fifth annual Art Fest exhibition will be hosted at the Ernie Miller Nature Center in Olathe from Nov. 1 through 22. The deadline for entries is Aug. 7.
Sponsored by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District, Art Fest is open to previously juried artists currently residing in Johnson County who are 21 years of age or older. The exhibition is limited to original, wall-mounted art executed within the past two years.
For an entry fee of $20 artists may submit up to three works of art for consideration. Only one piece of art per artist may be selected for the exhibition.
Entry forms and instructions are available at the district’s website at www.jcprd.com or by calling (913) 894-3324.
Exhibiting artists will be competing for over $4,000 in prizes and awards. There will be $1,000, $750 and $500 cash prizes awarded, as well as $2,000 in purchase awards for art placed on permanent display in Johnson County Park and Recreation District facilities.
