The 2017 Azalea Festival Art Show and Sale is rapidly approaching. The dates of the show are Memorial Day weekend, May 27-28. The deadline for registration will occur on Saturday, April 29, before you receive the next newsletter.
In-person registration at Manley Art Center (433 Oak Street, Brookings) will be held April 28 and 29 from 11 am-4 pm. No late registrations will be accepted. Applications are available at Manley Art Center, Wright's Gallery, Crescent Harbor Gallery and a PDF version is available on line at www.wildriverscoastart.com and www.pelicanbayartsassociation.org.
Consider entering your art in the show - many people visit the show so your art gets great visibility. You may enter up to 4 pieces of art. We will be awarding $525 in cash prizes. Thanks to Coos Curry Electric, Wright’s Custom Framing and Art Supplies, Signature’s Gallery, Rogue Credit Union, and donations in memory of Pat Stewart.
In order to put on a show of this size, we need lots of help from volunteers. We will have sign-up
sheets available at Manley leading up to the show. They will be available starting at the April general meeting on Thursday, April 13.
