HotWorks Announces Professional Artist Award Winners at Asheville Fine Art Show in May 19 & 20, 2018

May 31, 2018

Hot Works’ 2nd annual Asheville Fine Art Show held May 19 & 20, 2018 indoors at the WNC Ag Center’s David Event Center in Fletcher, NC, brought professional artists to showcase and sell their art in all forms of disciplines including: painting, sculpture, clay, glass, wood, fiber, digital, jewelry, photography and more. This fine art and fine craft show was juried by art professionals with an art education and/or art show experience. Many artists were in North Carolina for their very first time. All artwork was original and personally handmade by the artists who participated in the show. There was something for everyone, in all price ranges.

The Asheville Fine Art Show is sponsored by Hot Works, a professionally produced fine art fair with an outstanding national reputation for producing top-notch art shows. Hot Works has four other established quality juried fine art and fine craft shows in Fort Myers and Boca Raton, Florida and West Bloomfield, Michigan – all voted top 100 art shows in the nation. Institute for the Arts & Education is the associated 501(c)3 non-profit organization which focuses on visual arts, cultural diversity, community enrichment and fostering art education among youth.

As part of our commitment to bring art education into the community, the Youth Art Competition for students in grades K-8 or ages 5-13 was integrated into the art fair. This year included 22 entries from 9 schools and one home-schooled. Sponsored by Institute for the Arts & Education, there were four prizes with $250 in Youth Art awards. This program exposed students to the entrepreneurship of doing something they love for a living, which is creating their art. It also brought families to the art show who may not have otherwise attended, and exposed them to great art.

In order to recognize exceptionally talented artists in the show, there were seventeen Professional Artist Awards. Constance “Connie” Vlahoulis, a resident of Mills River and painter with 30+ years’ experience, was the “Artist Judge”. On Saturday, she judged the artists, with criteria centered on technique/execution, originality, and booth appearance.

Following the selection of awards, a “Prize Patrol” team distributed the awards. Included were:
· Constance “Connie” Vlahoulis, Artist Judge
· Mayor Rod Whiteside, Town of Fletcher
· Patty Narozny, Executive Producer, Hot Works Asheville Fine Art Show

Each of the 17 winning artists were met and greeted by the “Prize Patrol” team and provided with a beautiful two-foot long ribbon that they displayed in his/her booth for the remainder of the art show. It was a very positive experience for the artists to meet Mayor Whiteside, who took the time to attend the art show, be there to distribute ribbons, and to congratulate the winning artists in the show. On behalf of Hot Works and the artists in the show, we are very grateful to have had Mayor Whiteside present at the show; we look forward to returning to the WNC Ag Center for many more years to come.

Lakeside Artists Studio Tour in the Lake Norman area of NC, Calls for Participation – Deadline is August 25, 2018

May 30, 2018

The annual Lakeside Artists Studio Tour has become a very popular cultural event in the Lake Norman area of NC (near Charlotte). The 2009 inaugural event drew over 500 attendees over a day and a half period. Each year since people have told us they look forward to this event and we have had excellent attendance due to publicity, word of mouth and the high quality of work by participating artists and craftspeople. We expect even more visitors this year because we are again extending the event to three days; Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Our tag line is “one of a kind art directly from the artists”, ensuring visitors unique works of art they won’t find everywhere else. We also offer visitors an open tour of our studios providing an insider’s view of the artists working environment. There will be several studios and houses open where multiple artists can show their work. Mediums include wood, fiber, ceramics, paintings, sculpture, furniture, jewelry, etc.

For the convenience of our visitors, each location will have several artists. You may be a guest at an existing studio, or host your own studio location on the Brawley peninsula. While this is mainly a studio tour, there may also be an opportunity for some participating artists to occupy vacant upscale homes for sale in The Point area. Every effort will be made to combine artists with varying mediums at each location. An example of a typical configuration would be: A painter, a wood artist, and a jewelry artist. No single location will have more than one artist of a certain medium/style. Because of our need to have a good mix at each location, it may be necessary to limit the number of artists accepted in each medium. This does not necessarily reflect the quality of your work.

Each year we enjoy publicity in nearly every local publication, and this year we plan to do the same. Large banners will be posted in prominent locations in the weeks preceding the show, and on the dates of the show we will have signs directing visitors to each studio location. High quality brochures or postcards will be distributed in the area and will also be furnished to the artists for their own distribution. We also have a professional website that you can reference on your e-mail communications, website, and other social networking methods. It will have a page for each studio location as well as for each artist and representations of your work. It also serves as a link back to your personal website. Although the website is temporarily vacant until we get new 2018 data/information from our artists, you can access the website here (http://www.LKNStudios.com).

Even if you were a participant in last year’s event, the jury process is still required. Please read the full prospectus with the new rules and if you are in agreement, fill out the attached application, sign and send your checks totaling $200.00 as described below. Send new images of your work so we can publish on the post card as space allows and on the website (previous years images will not be used).

FEES: A non-refundable fee $25.00 is due with the application for the jury process. You should also submit a separate check for $175 (with a self addressed stamped envelope) to contribute to expenses for advertising, website, and other related items. If your work is not accepted for this show, your $175 check will be returned uncashed. Please make checks payable to: Lakeside Artists Studio Tour and mail to: Lakeside Artists, 269 Kemp Road, Mooresville, NC  28117.

If you are entering in more than one category (such as painting and sculpture, or ceramics and jewelry), a separate $25 entry fee will apply to each. Total fees are $200.00 for one category, $225 for two, etc..
