Calling All Artists: ART_A_THON 2018
Come battle it out against other local and regional artists to win cash and other prizes! Impress the public with your skills and creativity in a live-action art contest. Winners will be chosen by popular vote from the public.
The competition takes place on Friday, May 18th. The Art-A-Thon is a ONE DAY event. Each artist will have five total hours to work, during which gallery-goers will be watching the artists’ create and then will vote on their favorite. Check-in will begin at 1 p.m., artists will be able to set up and prepare, then at 3 p.m. art-making will commence and the battle officially begins. All art making must take place within the five-hour window provided, the contest will end at 7 p.m., and all brushes, sculpting tools, and pencils must be dropped. Finally, the winner will be announced at 7:30 p.m. after all votes are tallied. Visitors will be voting on their favorite works of art throughout the day, and the winners will be chosen based on which artists receive the highest number of votes. To sign-up submit 2-5 images representing your artwork, a brief statement describing what you do in general, and a short description of what you plan to do at the 2018 Art-A-Thon.
Deadline to sign up is May 15th.
