Call for Entries: Inspired Palouse 2018


August 30, 2018 | View PDF

You are cordially invited to enter "Inspired Palouse" sponsored by The Colfax Arts Council. The event is based on a classic plein-air painting competition but with a few fresh twists:

1. It is open to ALL MEDIA - painting, fabric art, sculpture, photography, etc.

2. Works must have an open air (plein-air) perspective. However, artists may either complete their artworks in the traditional plein-air manner on site, or complete the work elsewhere.

3. Subjects must be selected within a 75-mile radius of Colfax.

All submissions will be part of a jury selection process for acceptance into the exhibition. The Colfax Arts Council will award over $500 in prizes for top juried winners and a People's Choice Award, by vote of the public during the exhibition. '

The Colfax Arts Council will present an Inspired Palouse exhibit and reception to celebrate the accepted artworks and showcase the beauty of our unique Palouse region. The exhibit will be free and open to the public at The Center, 110 S. Main Street, in Colfax Washington (adjacent to the Colfax Public Library).

Works will be on display October 27-November 17, with the Reception November 17 from 5-7 pm. Punch, coffee, and refreshments will be served at the reception, and visitors can enjoy a no-host bar with wine and beer. Award winners will be announced at 6:00pm.

Email any questions to [email protected] and include a phone number if you prefer a call back.

The Deadline for submissions is Sept. 29. Please visit http://www.explorecolfax.com under "My Arts" or take a look at the Facebook page under Colfax Arts Council to learn more about the event.
