Its time to start preparing for the JFAA Annual Art Show. This exhibition, in its 53rd year, takes on special significance in 2017 as it coincides with the grand opening of the Hansen Arts Park. The events to celebrate the opening of the park will occur August 24-26 and are collectively referred to as the Downtown ArtSpark! We want greater exposure and ability to celebrate the work of our local and regional artists so the show’s reception and awards announcement will occur on Saturday, August 26.  This will ensure that the artists can experience the Park’s celebration and we can share the exhibit with a broader audience who will be attending the outdoor event. Special Theme for this year’s annual – What Sparks Your Art? This very open theme could cover just about anything so artists should feel free to make a direct connection to the ArtSpark event with their creations or not. Artists can submit up to 3 artworks, any and all mediums are accepted. Note: Artwork needs to have been created in the past 3 years.

Registration Deadline – June 30, 2017
