Call for artists for ‘Olde Soles’ exhibit in Glenwood
The Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts has put out a call for artists for the “Tired Olde Soles” exhibit, which will be on display Sept. 8 through Oct. 1.
The exhibit is for “adventurers, travels, dreamers and believers,” according to a news release. “Many are familiar with the terms ‘It’s the journey, not the destination,’ or ‘Not all who wander are lost.’ “
“The call is to the wanderers, the journey-seekers and adventurers, representing the places the soles of our feet have taken us, plus the adventures brought to life upon our tires,” the release said.
The deadline for applications is Aug. 24.
Art inspired by Capitol Christmas tree sought
A call has been extended for a juried art competition to select official artwork representing the 2012 Capitol Christmas tree.
This year’s tree will come from the White River National Forest in Colorado, will be placed on the Capital lawn, and will be decorated with ornaments made by schoolchildren in Colorado.
The 2012 Capitol Christmas Tree Art Juried Art Exhibition “Into the Woods” is open to artists from all states. Cash prizes will be awarded, along with other prizes.
Deadline for entry and artwork submission is Sept. 1.
