We are looking forward to your participation in our fifth consecutive Ayden Collard Festival Art Show. Your entries in one or more of the previous Ayden Art Shows enabled us to prove that Ayden can indeed have one of the most successful art shows in the southeast. Please click the link for Art Show Bulletin and Registration Form.
As in prior years, the 2013 Ayden Collard Festival Art Show will be held inside the Ayden Community Building at 548 Second Street. Art will be accepted on Sunday, August 25 from 2 to 5 PM and on Monday August 26 from 9 to12 noon and from 4 to 8 PM.
Please note that the Artist Reception and Awards Ceremony will be held Tuesday evening, September 3, from 7 to 9 PM. Artists may invite one guest. All awards will be given at this time except for Viewer’s Choice. The Viewer’s Choice Award will be presented to the winning artist during pickup time on Sunday, September 8 from 4 to 6 PM.
Each year our show receives rave reviews from participating artists and guests. The students who visited the show last year were also very impressed and enthusiastic about the art on display. Many had not visited or known about the art show in past years, but we hope their visits generate more interest for art in the future. We look forward to your entries and any help you can give in promoting the art show.
