Applicants may leave their work at the Chamber of Commerce on April 14th or 15th or contact Judy Johnson (912-278-1953) to leave the work with her prior to the show. Entry is open to current or former residents of Appling County, or to entries that depict Appling County or its residents. No art larger than 3 feet by 5 feet, and artists may exhibit only three works per show, unless it is a special show. Reproductions of originals will not be hung. They may be shrink-wrapped or framed in good condition and may be displayed for sale. All work will be divided into original or copies divisions in individual categories. All work to be hung must be framed and ready to be hung. Artwork applications should include the date the artwork was created. Please show your work at this show so others can see the talent Appling Countians have.
