Show Off Your Art at the Town & Country Amateur Art Show

Part of the fun of making art is displaying it. Budding artists and art enthusiasts are encouraged to enter their work in the Town & Country Amateur Art Show. This show offers non-professional artists and crafters the opportunity to have their local art work publicly exhibited and professionally judged. Eligible entries may represent any visual art media.

Who can submit art?

The purpose of this exhibit is to encourage AMATEUR youth and adult artists’ pursuit of artistic pastimes.

Amateur adult artists are broadly defined as those who do not:

  • have a degree in visual fine arts, commercial art, photography, etc.
  • create art in the entered art form for a livelihood.
  • teach arts, photography, or crafts as a profession.

What kind of art is eligible?

Entries must be new, original work created by an amateur artist. New work is defined as that which was completed within a year prior to the current show.

  • Original entries are conceived, composed, and executed entirely by the exhibitor.
  • Paintings and drawings may be of any artist-visualized subject.
  • Exhibited photographs must be taken by the artist, but may be commercially processed and framed.
  • Sculptures of all types and woven items, pottery, and other craft exhibits must be entirely contrived and created by the exhibitor from raw materials or basic elements, i.e. no kits.

Please Note: The committee may opt not to display any work(s) deemed inappropriate for public display by the exhibit host, The Springer Cultural Center.

Judging and Awards

Ribbons are awarded in two divisions: Youth and Adult.

  • Each division is awarded a “Best of Show” ribbon. 
  • Blue ribbons are also awarded in both divisions to pieces that exhibit a strong quality of work.
  • All other participants will receive a participation ribbon.

Recipients of Best of Show and Blue ribbons are eligible to compete at the State Town & Country Amateur Art Show in the fall.
