Holiday Island art show, sale is this weekend

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

HOLIDAY ISLAND -- The Holiday Island Association of the Arts 24th Annual Art Exhibit and Sale will be this weekend in the Barn at Holiday Island.

Organizers reported around 80 entries were received by the deadline Friday.

Entries are in four categories: works on paper, works on canvas or fabric, mixed media and photography. Artists who submit work for the competition are also asked to donate an item for a silent auction to help defray costs of the show.

This year's judge is Judy Maurer of Springdale, a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and the Artists of Northwest Arkansas and a member of the Plein Air Painters of the Ozarks.

Every art show also includes a Holiday Island directory competition, judged by viewers' choice. The top choice winning entry will be on the cover, and the next two will be inside the directory.

Art show hours will be Friday, Aug. 31, and Saturday, Sept. 1, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 2, from noon to 4 p.m. Viewers' choice voting on both general show and directory entries will end at 3 p.m. Sunday, with winners announced at 4 p.m.

The Barn is located at the end of Shields Drive on the island in Holiday Island.
