The deadline for artist applications to participate in the new Cedar Arts Fest, which will showcase the works of Mitchell County and area artists, is fast approaching. While the deadline is June 11, the date is not set in stone.
The event will be held from 1-7 p.m. on Saturday, July 31, and Saturday, August 7, at the Cedar River Complex in Osage. The event is sponsored by the Fine Arts Council of Mitchell County and Cedar Summerstock Theater.
Space will be available for artist vendors, or for those who simply want to exhibit their art. According to the press release, generous set-up time will be available on both Saturdays.
The theater’s production of Regarding Broadway will follow the close of the fest each Saturday in the Krapek Family Fine Arts Center, also housed in the CRC. The Mitchell County Historical Society joins the CRC as partner for the event.
Entrants must be 18 years old; younger artists may exhibit by special invitation. Artists may sign up for one or both Saturdays.
For more information and to apply, go to www.cedarsummerstock.org, your local Chamber of Commerce, or visit the Facebook page for the Fine Arts Council of Mitchell County. All visual artists are encouraged to apply, even if they have never exhibited before.
The FACMC is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and promoting a variety of experiences in the fine arts for residents in Mitchell County.
