Are you a closet artist? Did you paint or draw in high school and college, and interested in reviving that skill? Do you have that perfect “art” photo that you know should be in an exhibit? The Pocono Arts Council offers you the perfect opportunity to show your artwork and become part of the dynamic arts community of the Pocono area.
The prospectus is now available for the Pocono Arts Council Members’ Exhibition 2016. This show is open to all members of the Council, with one piece of artwork per member accepted. Non-members are welcome to participate in the show by joining the Council at drop-off. The show is juried for prizes with first, second and third place available in the following categories: acrylic; oil; mixed media; watercolor; photography; works on paper; 3-D works (sculpture & non-functional); and fine crafts (functional). A best in show award is also available. Drop-off for the show is Monday, May 2nd, 1-3 pm and 6-8 pm. The show runs from May 7 – 28 in the ARTSPACE Gallery, 18 N. Seventh St., Stroudsburg.
