The works of 35 artists, amateur and professional, were accepted for judging and display at the 16th annual Community of Fine Arts, a juried art show presented by the Westlake-Westshore Arts Council. This show is open for public viewing August 3 through 29 at Westlake Porter Library, 27333 Center Ridge Road, during library hours. The nearly 80 original works are one of a kind and have not been previously exhibited in this show.
The entries are accepted and judged in four categories: Oil/Acrylic; Watercolor; Drawing/ Pen & Ink; Charcoal/Pastel; Photography. A $100.00 cash award is made for Best in each division/category and a $50.00 cash award for Second in each division/category. Honorable Mention ribbons and/or gifts are also awarded as determined by the judges.
The three judges for the 2015 show are Paula Blackman, Bill Kufahl, and Patricia Hanahan Sigmier.
On Saturday, August 29, the public is invited to a “Meet the Artists” reception to be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. The mission of the Westlake-Westshore Arts Council is to bring art to the public in a non-commercial setting. With the cooperation of Westlake Porter Library, The Community of Fine Arts is free and open to all.
