Juried art competition amazes our city!

We would like to express our sincere thanks to our judges David Budinski (Photography), David Lobenberg (2-Dimensional Art), and Yoshio Taylor (3-Dimensional Art) for judging our 2nd Annual Open Fine Arts Competition! They had a big job selecting from such an outstanding collection of art.

"There's nothing like this in our area.  It gives local artists an opportunity to show their work.  The more they get recognized the more our local art community will grow," said Cheryl Griess, EGFAC member and past president.

The reception for the art competition will be held on June 7th from 5-8 p.m. and will tie in with the Art Center’s monthly First Saturday event.  Awards will be presented to the winning artists at 7 p.m.

Sponsored by the city of Elk Grove and Herburger Publications the 2nd Annual Arts Competition Reception will also include refreshments, and live music by Gregg Matson.

Following the reception, community artists will be showing and selling their work, and the ongoing Tile Glazing Fundraiser will continue.

“We’re looking forward to seeing everyone come out to this event,” Robertson said. “There is a lot of great artwork coming from the artists in our community.”

The show will continue through June 26.  Hope to see you there!
