New Program for Aspiring Artists This Year!
New this year, we are implementing a mentoring program for young artists (K-12). Local professional artists will mentor young artists that want to enter the competition in the Junior Art Exhibit at the Clarendon Arts Festival.
What will you learn from your mentor?
• How to prepare for a show
• Best way to display your work
• Decide if you want to sell your work or just show your work
• How to interact with buyers
Aspiring artists may make an appointment with a mentor by calling:
Chriss Clifford at 806-206-6767
Appointments will be set during our Open Studio sessions. Open Studio sessions will be held in the basement of the First Presbyterian Church on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, beginning Monday, September 14th until Monday, October 19th.
Young artists that enter the Junior Art Exhibit this year will be competing for trophies, ribbons and prizes with all artists receiving participation ribbons. The prizes and ribbons will be awarded at a special event during the Clarendon Arts Festival on Saturday, October 24th at 2:30 pm.
The event, sponsored by Clarendon’s Les Beaux Arts Club, begins with the Preferred Buyers Reception held Thursday evening, October 22, where buyers will be delighted with the variety being offered at the Clarendon Arts Festival this year.
Many art works were checked in this week at the Clarendon Arts Festival. Anyone is welcome at Thursday’s reception; and if you haven’t already pre-paid as a preferred buyer, you can pay that night at the door.
As well as the large selection of art being offered, buyers enjoy the heavy hors d’oevres prepared by the ladies of Les Beaux Arts Club.
The Clarendon Arts Festival opens to the public Saturday at 9:00 a.m. and again at noon on Sunday. Those attending the Festival Sunday can enjoy St. Mary’s famous Annual Enchilada Dinner.
In addition to the art show, there are many artists setting up booths with hand-constructed items for sale.
