Join a community art show in Bryson City

Local artists and artisans in Swain and surrounding counties are invited to submit up to four original works of art for the annual community art exhibit at the Swain County Center for the Arts.

Artwork for this nine-week exhibit will be received in the lobby of the Center for the Arts from 8-11 a.m. on Monday, July 30, or earlier by appointment. All artwork should be available for display through the end of September and can be priced to sell.

The artwork can be done in any medium of any appropriate subject — sculptures, paintings, drawings, photographs, needlework, etchings, batiks, weaving, wall hangings, pottery, baskets, jewelry or other original handcrafted items. Artwork for the wall should be ready to hang with wire attached. Works on paper should be framed under glass or plexiglas or they can be matted and shrink-wrapped without a frame.

Each submitted piece should have a 3-by-5-inch card attached with name, address, and phone number. Also, identify the artwork by title, the medium you used to create it, and the price if you wish to sell it. Write “NFS” if the piece is not for sale.
