The show will be judged for First, Second and Third place winners. Honorable Mentions will also be awarded with ribbons. Artists are allowed to enter up to 5 works of art at no cost. No work may be larger than 48” in any direction. All 2-D work must be framed or gallery wrapped and properly wired for hanging. 3-D artwork must be on a base or pedestal.

Artwork should be hand delivered to our gallery, 42-B Third Street NW, Hickory, Thurs. and Friday June 15th and 16th, 11am-5pm and Sat., June 17th 10am – 2pm.

We are looking forward to a wonderful show and for the opportunity for the public to view the exceptional artwork by the members of Full Circle Arts. We have several new members whose art may not have been seen my many patrons in the area before now. According to FCA president, Ellen Schwarzbek, “There is a great deal of excellent art being produced in this area.  The members of FCA believe we are helping support the local economy by presenting our art to the community.

Each art work is unique and we are happy to invite the public to come and enjoy it”. Our members are also very active in other ways in the Hickory area and always help provide refreshments for all of our receptions.

We would also like to take the opportunity to announce the winner of the People’s Choice Award at our Tiny Arts Show. Beth Oczkowski’s  quilling work  Sunrise Over the Mountains received the most votes from people visiting the show. Congratulations to Beth.

Full Circle Arts will retain a 30% commission for Associate Members and 20% for Exhibiting Members on any artwork sold during this exhibition.
