16th annual art show planned at library
The 16th annual Art Show and Sale will be held at the Banks County Public Library in Homer May 5- 18 during normal library hours.
Many local and regional artists will have work on display and for sale to the public. This event has expanded with well over 50 local artists expected to participate.
These contributing artists will have three to five of their original works on display. It also offers visitors a chance to see the talent available in this area.
Awards will be presented to the first, second and third place work in each category, such as pottery, woodcarving, painting, sculpture etc. and there will be a Best of Show award, a People’s Choice award and a Children’s Choice award.
The People’s Choice will be voted on by library patrons during the exhibit and the Children’s Choice will be voted on by the children who visit, including the classrooms who will visit as a field trip from the Banks County Primary School.
This event culminates with a tea for the artists and guests on Sunday May 18, from 2-4 p.m. The public is urged to come out to meet the artists, see their work and learn what inspires them. Information on future library events will also be available.
