New this year, we will highlight four artists as our “Featured Artist of the Week”. For one week each, the four artists will have one of their pieces prominently displayed in the center of the art show with a “Featured Artist” sign hanging above and a large poster board with a description about the artist/artwork next to it.
NOTE: Including featured artists in the May Art Show is a direct effort to continue our goal of highlighting Mental Health Awareness Month. To be considered as a featured artist, we ask that you include how mental health affects your life and/or your artwork. This description can be a short as one sentence or as long as two paragraphs.
If you are interested in being one of our featured artists, please contact Carrie Larsen and she will provide you with the featured artist form.
