North Ridge Country Club Art Society in Raleigh, NC, Calls for Entries for Juried Art Competition – Deadline Jan. 13, 2016

The North Ridge Country Club Art Society in Raleigh, NC, wishes to promote art and area artists, while also developing increased art appreciation within its membership. The NRCC Art Society continues to expand the permanent art collection in the clubhouse for members to enjoy.

Those selected artists will have 10 X 10 booths to offer additional work for sale at the North Ridge Country Club Art Gala on Feb. 27, 2016 at 6pm. Club members and their guests will attend the party to view the work and possibly add pieces to their personal collections. The juror will choose Best in Show, Second and Third Place award winners, who will receive recognition at the Gala and the opportunity to display their work in Gallery Hall for a designated number of weeks at North Ridge Country Club.  North Ridge Country Club will purchase the Best in Show piece to hang in the permanent collection.
