CultureWorks Calling All Artists!

Join CultureWorks in Celebrating A Decade of Championing Arts and Culture Every Day.

Artists are asked to submit concepts for a painting inspired by the Arts and Culture Scene in our Community (including Richmond, Petersburg and Ashland). From the entries a juried panel will select one artist to create the actual piece of art (along with a $500 award), which will then be raffled through CultureWorks in celebration of the 10th anniversary. An image of artwork will be used in all promotional materials for the 10th anniversary celebration, while the painting itself will be displayed in several galleries to encourage raffle sales during the months leading up to April.

For this proposal, it's not necessary to complete the final work, but sketches/studies are encouraged. Feel free to elaborate in the narrative portion of the entry form. The final painting can be no larger than 36" X 36".
