UNION — Local artists will have the opportunity to display their works and possibly even sell them during the 2017 Local Artists Showcase at the Union County Arts Council Art Gallery.
“We are getting ready for our 2017 Local Artists Showcase,” UCAC Director Amber Ivey said Thursday. “During this time, every item on display in our gallery will be by Union County residents and will be for sale.”
Ivey said that local artists interested in submitting their works to the gallery for showcase should contact her and reserve their spots in the showcase by Saturday, Nov. 4. She said that all artists who do reserve a spot in the showcase will then have until Friday, Nov. 10 to turn in to the gallery the works they want displayed in the showcase.
While artists who have participated in previous showcases are welcome, Ivey said it is hoped that this year’s showcase will attract new artists from the community as well.
“We look forward to having new artists participate this year and welcome all mediums,” Ivey said. “We want a variety of artists working in a variety of mediums.”
Those mediums include:
• Jewelry making
• Stained glass
• Home decor
• Christmas ornaments
