Call to Artists for Gainesville's 'Fowl Art Show' submit by March 4th

Gainesville, GA--  (submitted by City of Gainesville)  Plans for the Spring Chicken Festival are officially underway now that a Call to Artists has been issued for the Fowl Art Show. Interested artists should prepare an original work measuring 11 x 14 or 14 x 11.  The winning artwork image will be used for promotional material, posters, t-shirts and note cards to promote the Spring Chicken Festival sponsored by Keep Hall Beautiful.

The entry fee is $40.00 and includes a frame for the artist to keep. All entries should be taken to Frames-You-Nique in Gainesville by March 4.  Don Griffin, the coordinator of the Fowl Art Show, says the show is a way to get downtown involved in the official cook-off for the State of Georgia and pay homage to the “un-official” bird of Gainesville. “The artists are encouraged to paint a chicken or rooster in a humorous situation. The judges will be asked to consider the puns as well as the quality of the birds. The art will be on display at Frames-You-Nique beginning March 11 and will be judged the week  of  March 14,” Griffin said.
