Print Contest open for Guinea Jubilee
The Guinea Heritage Association and the Guinea Jubilee Committee are seeking original works of art for the 2017 Guinea Jubilee Print Contest.
Artists and photographers are invited to submit original works of art for the art print contest that reflect the character and local color of Guinea. The selected entry will be reproduced for sale as the official 2017 Guinea Jubilee print.
The deadline for the Print Contest application is Sunday, June 11, with a fee of $30. The deadline for artists to submit their original works is 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 25. Entries should be framed or matted, and the preferred image size of the artwork is 16”x20” or a standard framing size (including border). Artists are encouraged to consider the Guinea area and culture, Guinea heritage, or the Guinea Jubilee festival when creating their entry.
All art entries will be displayed at the Meet the Artist reception at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 16. A location has yet to be determined. All participating artists will be recognized at 2:30 p.m. The public is encouraged to come out to support and meet the artists and view their art. Refreshments will be served.
