Seeking Artists for Twelfth Annual Exhibit

Antrim Grange’s twelfth annual Spotlight on Community Artists exhibit will be held Friday, June 13 through Sunday, June 15 at the Antrim Grange Hall. Local amateur and professional artists are invited to exhibit their works.

Antrim Grange’s Art Exhibit program has a three-fold purpose: (1) To encourage local artists by providing an exhibit environment, (2) To engage the community in supporting local artists, and (3) To provide an opportunity for the public to experience and enjoy the historic Antrim Grange Hall, which provides an excellent showroom to display fine art and photographic works.

This is an opportunity to display your art works locally and, if you wish, offer them for sale. A modest commission fee on sales will help fund the Antrim Grange scholarship program.

To promote community fellowship for viewers and artists, we will celebrate the Evening Gala on Friday, June 13th , 7-9 p.m. with refreshments, musical entertainment, and a door prize.

We will continue the popular People’s Choice Award, which is selected by popular vote of patrons of the exhibit. The Pizza Box Art Contest introduced last year and sponsored by Rick & Diane’s Restaurant and Pizzeria is being offered again this year. See further details elsewhere on this page.

The Antrim Grange Art Exhibit schedule: Art drop-off, Wednesday, June 11th, 10 a.m. -noon and 4-6 p.m. Friday – 2-5 p.m. Art Viewing, Evening Gala 7-9 p.m.    Saturday Art Viewing - 10-3 p.m., Sunday Art Viewing – noon-4 p.m., People’s Choice Award – 4 p.m.  Art pick-up by 5 p.m.
