This is a juried show for artists open to artists of all backgrounds and media. Valentwe’en is a hybrid Valetine’s Day-Hallowe’en mash up also known as “Second Hallowe’en”. Themes should run along the lines of gothic romance with a mix of humor (think Addams Family). Since this year is 2020, artists are encouraged to produce art with a special focus on eyes. Dr. Paul Bearer will be our MC and judge for the show.
Please send images for consideration to Brandy Stark at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 25th. Accepted works will have a $5 entry fee for each accepted work.
Awards are for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, a Most Spirited Award, and a People’s Choice Award. Awards will be presented at 7:30 PM on the night of the reception.
Like last year, artists should try to attend the reception. Please wear your best Gothic Romanic gear or dress as your favorite gothic/romantic couple (Audrey and Seymour, anyone?)
