Salida Council for the Arts issues call for entries
All Salida-area artists are invited to submit their work for exhibition in the prestigious annual "Valley Visions" show, sponsored by Salida Council for the Arts. Deadline for entries in the 2015 show is April 10.
Designed as a showcase for the area's top creative talent, the non-juried exhibit will be on display May 1-31 in the Salida SteamPlant Annex. All entries will be for sale, with 80% of proceeds going to the artist and 20% to benefit the SteamPlant.
The popular exhibition will kick off with a gala public Grand Opening reception on Fri. May 1 from 4-7 pm. The event will feature gourmet hors d'oeuvres, live entertainment, cash bar, "meet the artist" opportunities, voting and presentation of People's Choice Award winners.
Valley Visions is open to all greater Salida area artists, photographers, artisans and sculptors; one entry per person. Patrons attending the reception will vote for their People's Choice favorites; and winners will receive cash and/or merchandise prizes in addition to Award Certificates. The show and winners will be heavily publicized throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
Because of space limitations, this highly popular exhibition is limited to the first 40 entries received. For complete information, instructions, and printable entry forms, go to http://salidacouncilforthearts.org or contact SCFTA President Lisa Marvel at The Book Haven, 719-207-1480.
