Entries now being accepted for Multi Media Fine Art Exhibition

The Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery will host an adjudicated Multi Media Fine Art Exhibition this October.

The Arts Council of Ladysmith and District hosts a Multi Media Fine Art Exhibition every two years, and this is the year.

The month-long show will run Oct. 4-29 at the Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery. Only a maximum of 150 entries will be adjudicated into this prestigious show, according to a press release from the arts council.

“Three professional artists will judge for content, design, presentation, craftsmanship and the ‘wow factor’ behind closed doors on Sept. 28, guarding who the winners are closely until opening night,” the release states.

Artists who create 2D, 3D and photography works have until Sept. 24 at 4 p.m. to submit their entries to the Arts Council. This can be done by mail or by dropping their entry off at the Waterfront Gallery.

Anne Jones, vice-president of the Arts Council, will oversee the show this year.

“I have been a judge for this show in the past and have taken part in our last Multi Media Show, so I think we will be strong on all accounts,” she said. “We have a strong, committed group of volunteers who we can count on and who love to lend a helping hand.”

Opening night is Saturday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m., at which time the winners will be announced. There is $5,000 up for grabs in prize money, with the winner of Best in Show receiving $1,000.

“This is one show everyone should attend — it’s an exciting night and the art will be breathtaking,” said Arts Council president Kathy Holmes.
