FAIRBORN — The B-W Greenway Community Land Trust is partnering with the Fairborn Art Association to announce the Landscapes 2018 juried art exhibition. It is aiming to use art to heighten public awareness of the importance of preserving local greenspaces.
A different location in the Fairborn and or Medway area is annually chosen as the subject of the art. The 2018 location is the Oakes Quarry Park, a City of Fairborn park located at 1267 E. Xenia Drive near the intersection of Interstate 675 on State Route 235.
The juried competition is open to all artists 16 years and older, living within 200 miles of Fairborn. Work may be oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor, print, drawing, mixed media, photography or 3D hanging art less than 10 lbs in weight. Size many not exceed 30-by-40 inches.
A non-refundable entry fee of $20 for a total of three works must accompany the entry form. All entries will be received at the Fairborn Art Association Gallery, 221 North Central Ave. (in the rear of the building) between 1-4 p.m. Saturday, June 30.
