Zeta Omicron Chapter of Epsilon Sigma Alpha Sorority is holding the 47th annual Edge of the Cedars Art Show at Cedaredge Middle School June 6-9. The local art show has become well known and respected, drawing many local participants as well as those from outlying areas and other states, as well. The judge for this year's exhibit is Wayne McKinzie. His background is not only in fine arts, but commercial art and illustration. He was a commission artist for both individual and corporate collections for many years. He has had several one-person shows, as well as being represented in group shows and galleries in Colorado and New Mexico.
The Edge of the Cedars Art Show is a non-juried show; therefore, every work of art entered is displayed. The categories are oil/acrylic, watercolor, graphics, pastels, mixed media, sculpture, photography, digitally enhanced photography, pottery, stained glass, and open.
Besides providing an outstanding art show for public viewing, funds provide art scholarships to graduating seniors to encourage further education. Scholarship winners will be honored at the reception and their artwork will be highlighted at the show. Proceeds from entry fees and commissions from sales go toward these scholarships.
The awards selected by the judge are Best of Show and best in each of the four expertise levels -- professional, advanced, amateur and student. The awards will be presented to the artists at the judge's reception on Wednesday, June 5, from 7-9 p.m.
The gallery will be open June 6-9 at Cedaredge Middle School. If you have any questions or comments, you can contact Shirley Clayton (970-856-3842) or Carol Vela (970-835-3388).
