On a chilly Tuesday last week Charles and I spent the afternoon ensconced in the Arts Clayton boardroom with gallery director Karen Powers and her assistant Courtney Fort, pouring over the 150+ entries to the Arts Clayton Gallery's 2010 Juried Art Competition. After four hours of serious deliberation, Charles had culled down to just under 60 finalists. An impressive and solid showing of Georgia artists.
Although a seperate judges panel will award the ribbons, Charles is allowed one pick for a juror's award. We'll most likely stop by in the few days after the show is hung but before the reception to make his final decision - it's always best to do those type of things while looking at the originals.
I'm looking forward to seeing everything displayed together. From what I saw last week it's going to be a very good exhibition. The opening reception will be on Thursday, February 4th; directions and other details can be found on the Arts Clayton Gallery's web page.
