Calling All Artists: ACT's Annual Art Show & Sale coming up in July

Collection —Rosy Lamb

Arts Council of Tamworth’s primary summer activity is its Annual Art Show & Sale. ACT invites local and visiting artists, both professional and amateur, to share their work with the community. The art show is a great opportunity for collectors wanting to discover new artists and for those simply looking to purchase art for their own homes. It allows emerging artists a chance to go public, and for professional artists can be an opportunity to share work that is different in some way from the work they show in galleries: experiments in some new medium, for example. Each artist can submit up to three pieces in any media, at least one of which must be offered for sale. Interested artists can download a registration form with all show details here, email us to request a form here, or call Myles Grinstead at 323-7182 for more information. The deadline for registering is July 10 and work must be dropped off on Thursday, July 23, between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. The public is invited to meet the artists at the Artists’ Reception and Opening on Friday, July 24, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The show will be open on Saturday, July 25, and Sunday, July 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
