County issues call for artists

The deadline is approaching for artists to enter the Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s Art Fest 2011 exhibit.

The show will be displayed from Oct. 30 to Nov. 20 at the Ernie Miller Nature Center in Olathe. The entry deadline is Aug. 4.

Art Fest is open to Johnson County residents who are at least 21 years old. The exhibit is limited to original, wall-mounted art executed within the past two years. Last year’s Art Fest attracted 246 entries, and 40 artists were exhibited.

For a single entry fee of $25, artists may submit up to three pieces of art for consideration. Only one piece per artist may be selected for the exhibition.

Entry information and forms are available at the district’s website at or by calling (913) 894-3324.
