Thayer art show slated

Thursday, September 15, 2005

THAYER -- In conjunction with the Thayer Alumni Homecoming, the Thayer Area Arts Council will sponsor their annual Art Show and Sale Oct. 13 through Oct. 19.

The event will be held at the Oregon County Country Music Theater at 5th and Walnut Street in Thayer.

According to event organizers, all forms of original art, both two-dimensional and three-dimensional, will be accepted.

"The purpose of the exhibit of work will be to showcase various media of visual arts produced in our area by artists of the Ozarks," said Judith Cornelius, a member of the arts council.

She said a large portion of this collection will be available for purchase. Many homes, businesses and offices have space available for works of art.

Cornelius said this is a good way to highlight and support local and area artists.

She said artists may bring their work on Oct. 8 or Oct. 9 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. There will be an entry fee of $5 for one entry and $2 for each additional piece up to five entries per artist.

The show will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting Oct. 13. Sunday hours will be from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and artists may pick up their work from 3 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Two- and three-dimensional work must be original, and two-dimensional work must be wired for hanging.

Cornelius said the show will be juried. There will be eight awards of excellence and six honorable mention. Cornelius said the Best of Show Award will include $50 cash, and a People's Choice Award will be chosen.
