27th Autumn Arts Juried Art Show Offers Cash Prizes, Grumbacher Award

Cash prizes and the prestigious Grumbacher Award will be awarded by the 2002 Autumn Arts Juried Art Show, to be held Oct. 27-Nov. 15 in the Civic Center at Vance-Granville Community College.

This will be the 27th juried art show sponsored by the Kerr Lake Art Society, in cooperation with Vance-Granville Community College. In addition to cash, the society plans to award ribbons and merchandise prizes.

First prize in the 2002 Autumn Arts Show will be $100, second will get $75, and third will receive $50. In addition, Koh-l-Noor Inc. will provide the Grumbacher Gold Medallion Award and a $200 merchandise certificate to the creator of the best art work in the show using at least 50 percent of Grumbacher products. All entries except the Grumbacher Award winner will be eligible for first, second and third-place cash awards.

Art works must be original, produced within the past 12 months and not previously exhibited in a Kerr Lake Arts Society show. Artists may enter up to three pieces. A non-refundable entry fee of $15 for three pieces for society members and $25 for non-members will be charged.

Works may not exceed 36 inches per side, image size, and all work must be framed. Non-traditional work may be entered without a frame but must not exceed 36 inches a side and must be equipped for hanging.

Artists should deliver their entries to the Vance-Granville Community College Civic Center between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Friday-Saturday, Oct. 18-19.

The college is located at Exit 209 off I-85 between Henderson and Oxford.

All works will be for sale, and numerous Autumn Arts patrons will select pieces they wish to buy during the judging. Sales to the public at the value specified on the artist’s entry card will be encouraged throughout the exhibit.

The Kerr Lake Art Society, with assistance from the Henderson Junior Woman’s Club, will host an opening reception in the Civic Center from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 27, for artists who enter pieces, people in the area with special interest in visual arts and for the news media. Winners will be announced at the reception, and all work entered will be displayed.
