The Community Art Show will be taking entries from both community adults and high school students.  Each participant is allowed to enter a maximum of three individual pieces.  There are no entry fees. 

Entries should be presentation-ready (framed or matted and ready to hang, etc.) and dropped off in Room 110 of FCC’s West Hall.  Art can be dropped off between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24, and between 7:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Thursday, 25.  High schools are to drop off pieces by appointment only.  All pieces must include a completed entry form, which is available here or at the front desk in FCC’s Administrative Center.  Graphic design pieces must be in a physical format for judging and may also be e-mailed to maguirea@iecc.edu if it is to be included in the digital presentation.

The public is invited to the Community Art Show on April 26 between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to view the local art, enjoy light refreshments, and vote for their favorite piece from each category.  Awards will be presented at 7 p.m.  An overall Best of Show will be awarded, along with a People’s Choice award for both the adult and high school levels.  First, second, and third place will also be recognized in each category.  Monetary prizes will be given to the Best of Show ($100) and People’s Choice ($50 each) recipients.
