There will be a $30 entry fee covers two pieces of art for artists, along with $10 for additional pieces up to five total. The prizes for winners will include a cash sum, which local Chewelah businesses have donated over $500 towards. Best of Show will receive $300, first place will get $200, second place will receive $100 and there will be two honorable mentions. There will also be a People’s Choice Award as voting will take place between March 4 and April 24.
Judging the show will be David Anderson and Jen Fuller.

He is currently Professor of Art at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City, OR, where he directs the Drawing and Painting programs.
Jen Fuller is a Portland based site-specific installation artist whose work utilizes glass, steel, digital media and found objects.
