Aug. 30 deadline for Septemberfest artwork

by Maureen Dosier | Lawrence County Arts Council

The Lawrence County Arts Council would like to see more of our artistically talented residents of all ages entering their art work in the biggest multi-media art show in Lawrence County.

Artists are allowed to price and sell their entries, complete transactions after the presentation ceremony, and throughout the month the artwork is displayed.

All artwork entries for the Septemberfest Art Show must be submitted on Saturday, Aug. 30, to the Lawrence County Library between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Entry fees $1 per item ages 18 or under, $2 per item for adults.

Please include a card with your name, phone number, category and age group, entry fee, and remember presentation counts.

Judging will commence Saturday afternoon, and prizes will be first and second place Septemberfest ribbons, honorable mention Septemberfest ribbons in juvenile and adult groups. An engraved plaque for Best of Show will also be awarded.

There will be a special presentation ceremony for winners during Septemberfest on the main stage and photos and videos will be featured in newspapers and television.
