Local art venue to become area of 51

December 27, 2013 by  

The Kent Island Federation of Art (KIFA) is holding a challenge to celebrate its 51st anniversary to get 2014 underway.

The ‘Art Created in 51’ display is accepting works in any genre that feature the number 51 in some form. This can include a painting using 51 brush strokes, photographs featuring the number, jewelry made with that number of beads, or anything else the imagination might allow. All two-dimensional works must be framed and ready for hanging before being considered for the exhibition.

Entry fees are $10 per piece and $15 for up to three works for members and $20 for non-members; the special youth fee is $2. Works selected for display must be dropped off at KIFA on January 2 between 1:00 pm and 6:00 pm.

An opening reception is taking place early in January and will be open to the public, and it is likely that most of the artists in the exhibit will make an appearance.

The Kent Island Federation of Art is located in Stevensville and provides art lessons and various programs for citizens. To let the public know about upcoming events, many organizations suchlike this invest in services from local printing companies; this can include brochure and flyer printing.

The Art Created in 51 exhibition will be showing at the Kent Island Federation of Art from January 3 until February 1. The opening reception will take place on January 4 from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm. The facility is open Tuesday through Saturday and admission is free. For more information, call 410-643-7424.
