EATON — Each year, the Preble County Art Association in Eaton offers local artists the opportunity to compete for cash prizes by submitting their best works which will be juried for prizes.
Awards for the artists include a $250 Best of Show award, $150 for first place, $100 for second place and $75 for third place. Additionally, there are $100 President’s Choice and $75 Director’s Choice awards.
“We are very fortunate to have a number of locally gifted professional and amateur artists from Preble County and surrounding areas display art for the show,” Director Vicky Fanberg said.
The exhibit will be on display at the Visual Arts Center of Preble County in Eaton, from May 20-July 15, with an informal reception May 20, 6 — 8 p.m.
“We invite the public to come out and celebrate these great, emerging and established artists,” Fanberg added.
