Asheville Fine Art Show Calls for Entries for Its “Youth Art Competition” – Deadline May 1, 2018

March 31, 2018

Nationally-renowned art show organizer Hot Works, LLC is inviting aspiring young artists ages 5 through 13 (grades K-8) to participate in the “Youth Art Competition” it is holding in conjunction with the Asheville Fine Art Show on May 19 & 20, 2018. The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2018.

Hot Works has a long history of promoting art education in connection with its fine art shows. One way in which it seeks to accomplish this goal is by inviting local youngsters to compete in an adjunct youth art competition for grades K-8 or ages 5-13. Sponsored by the Institute for the Arts & Education, Inc. (the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which is part of the art fair), the competition gives budding young artists a golden opportunity to begin learning the rules of being part of a professional art show and exhibition. As a bonus, competitors are provided with prime space within the show to display their entries, and $250 in cash awards for the winners.

The Asheville Fine Art Show features work by up to 125 fine art and craft artists who have been juried into the two-day event by a panel of professionals in evaluating and judging artwork of all kinds and descriptions. The exhibiting professionals are on sight throughout the show, and students participating in the competition are afforded the opportunity to speak with them and ask questions about their process, inspiration and what it is like to participate in art festivals and fairs as a career.

“In these ways, our youth art competition provides students with an unmatched learning experience,” states Art Show Director Patty Narozny. Criteria for judging the youth competition is the same as that employed to judge the work of the show’s professional artists: technique/execution and originality.
