Call for artists


OTTAWA – The Ottawa Art League is looking for adult amateur artists to enter the 60th Annual Town & Country Amateur Art Show to be held May 12. The show hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be held at Jeremiah Joe Coffee, 807 LaSalle St. Ottawa. Entry deadline is April 8. For further details and a printable entry form, check out the OAL website www.OttawaArtLeague.org under Fine Art Shows, Town & Country Adult Show. Enter one piece for $7, or enter up to four pieces for $10 total.

The show is sponsored by the Ottawa Art League but the show is open to all adult amateur artists. First, second, or third place ribbons will be awarded to each entry and a Best of Show, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd overall will be named. The judge will critique the art and talk with artists about their work. All blue ribbon entries are eligible for the state competition held in Champaign, later this year.
