Attached is the "Call to Artists" (along with a logo that can be used with it) for our 1st annual "Florence Fest" to be held in the Spring. It directs artists to the FRAA website where they can fill out an entry form on-line. This is a great opportunity for all artists to gain exposure at a very unique event in Florence, which also features Jazz and Wine.
We are on a very tight timetable - entries must be in by February 12.
CALL TO ARTISTS – FLORENCE FEST
The Florence Regional Arts Alliance (FRAA) is very excited to invite all artists to participate in the 1st annual “Florence Fest” to be held at the Florence Events Center on March 31 and April 1, 2017. This unique event, which will feature two days of Jazz, Art and Wine, will be highlighted by talented jazz musicians and outstanding wine from some of the best wineries in the Willamette Valley. The juried art section of the event will provide maximum exposure for creative artist’s work and significant prize money will be awarded.
Selection for the exhibit will be made by Robert Canaga, who is an accomplished painter, photographer and printmaker. He has been the curator for numerous exhibitions throughout the Northwest; including the Gallery at the Watershed, Peace Health Headquarters, OPUS6IX, and the Coos Art Museum. He is a former gallery owner and has also exhibited in over 30 selected shows, most recently at a 3-month show in the State Capitol Building. His work currently appears in 14 public and private collections. There is an exquisite sense of style and strength in his own work, and his tastes and preferences are eclectic and run across a broad range of styles.
Cash prizes will also be awarded and will be selected by an awards committee of three local artists and gallery owners: SK Lindsey (Kenneth B. Gallery), Marianne Brisbane, (Vardanian Gallery) and Steve Dennis (Earthworks Gallery)
1st place = $1,000
2nd place = $500
3rd place = $250
