A Letter From The President
Greetings Fellow Artists and Art Lovers!!
After such a wonderful Art Faire in September, we are gearing up for our next signature event to be held in December; “Christmas in Clayton”!
This is such a wonderful and popular event. We are finalizing the homes and artists that will be participating this year. Be sure to keep checking the website for information.
Apply to show your artwork at The Clayton Center in 2018.
Now is your chance to apply to be part of the 2018 exhibit line-up. Interested artists or artist-groups are invited to apply for a show by sending a resume, a portfolio of 4-6 images and a non-refundable application fee of $10 to the Exhibits Committee. Submissions may be photographs, preferably submitted in .jpg format by email, .jpgs on a CD, or images on a specified website. Each image should show a single piece of art with minimal background. We recommend images be taken with a high quality camera with the longest side of about 2000 pixels. The images must be representative of the type of work the artist plans to exhibit.
All items (resume, portfolio of images, application, and fee) must reach the committee no later than 5 p.m. Monday, October 30th, 2017. Learn more here.
Next month’s exhibit will feature artwork by Lisa Bailey and Jo Lee Tucker.
