The Foothills Arts Festival will run from Friday, October 13 to Sunday, October 15, 2017.

Hours:  • Friday and Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.   • Sunday 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Artists are invited to enter the 36th Annual Foothills Art Festival to be held at the indoor Lodge at Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp, 5 miles northwest of Jackson, Ohio.

Artists are invited to exhibit in the following categories: Oil/Acrylic, Pastel/Drawing,
Traditional Photography, Enhanced Photography, Three Dimensional Work, and Watercolor.

The exhibit is professionally judged, but is not juried. Artists of all ages and experience are encouraged to enter. Entrants are limited to 4 works per category.  The early registration deadline has past, but artists may still enter.  If there is room available, entries will also be accepted at the door at the rate of $12 per piece or $44 for 4 pieces.

A total of $1,545 will be awarded in prizes, sponsored by local and regional businesses, including the new Patricia Best Eley Memorial Award for “Most Creative”. The judges will award the Patricia Best Eley Memorial Award to the artwork that expresses the creative use of materials through imagination and the application of the principals and elements of design. The award may be given to either two or three-dimensional artwork, but it may not include nudity in any form.

A strong Purchase Award Patron program ensures sales with a Preview Reception the evening of October 12. Members of the press, volunteers, and artists will party with the buyers.

The Foothills Art Festival is a long standing tradition held within the foothills of Southeastern Ohio and is made possible by the generosity of arts supporters.

Foothills Art Festival is a program of Southern Hills Arts Council. For further information call the Council at 740-286-6355, email foothills@markayjackson.org or write Box 149, Jackson, Ohio 45640.
