When people think of art, some think of the aesthetic and feeling the artwork inspires. Not all art has to be straightforward. The Juried Fine Arts committee has an event planned to showcase original art and introduce Festival guests to a new world of art. The committee brainstormed ways to connect the event to other VHF related events, such as using Paint the Town to spread more awareness of the juried exhibit. Those who participate in Paint the Town’s pop-up exhibit have the chance to win a free entry into the juried show for fine arts! Artists can show off their own works and also attend a lecture from a featured artist. Even young and budding artists can submit their work to be judged for prizes and displayed for the duration of the Festival. If you want to have your work judged with the chance to win a prize, apply online at http://vahighlandsfestival.org/forms-applications/ and share your art with the world!
