Arts Clayton accepting entries for 2008 art competition

Arts Clayton has announced that it is now receiving entries for its Annual Juried Show, which will run at Arts Clayton Feb. 4-29.

The show is open to all Georgia artists, 18 and older. All two-and three-dimensional work -- excluding photography, video, and installation artwork -- will be accepted.

The Best of Show winner will have his or her art purchased by the gallery, and the opportunity for a solo show in September 2008. Cash prizes will be given to the first-place, second-place, and third-place winners.

In addition, this year's artists will have the opportunity to have their work included in the Arte Gras Sale, held during Arts Clayton's Annual Arte Gras Ball on Feb. 23, at Eagle's Landing Country Club in Stockbridge.

This year's jury will meet at 10 a.m., on Monday, Dec. 17 to judge the entries. The submission deadline is Dec. 15. For entry requirements and applications, call Arts Clayton at (770) 473-5457, or visit www.artsclayton.org/gallery.
