CALL FOR ART!

Click here - enter our SEPTEMBER CALL FOR ART

The Starline 4th Friday in September will once again feature our very popular – Virtual Art Show! We have received such a great response by artists and viewers! We are happy to say that some of our artists have sold items or have been contacted by potential buyers of art. We are thrilled to be a small part of supporting artists during this time when we cannot gather easily.

As we wait until we can once again share our appreciation for the arts as a community, we continue to offer a virtual experience. For the Starline 4th Friday in September we are awarding a juried, Best of Show Award and an audience voted Peoples’ Choice Award. Beginning in September the 4th Friday team has decided to invite a Starline Resident Artist to judge the entries of the Virtual Art Show and award a piece of art the Best of Show Award. The new Best of Show Award will receive a Starline Best of Show Medal, a $25 gift card to the Starline Stanchion Pub & Terrace Grill, be featured on our website and Facebook and the possibility of having the artist’s work displayed in the Starline Overland Gallery. Beginning in September, the People’s Choice Award will be by popular vote and will receive a People’s Choice Medal and a feature on our website and Facebook. The web site containing the Virtual Art Show includes a method for the viewer to vote and comment on their favorite piece or pieces! The art piece that receives the most votes will be awarded a Starline Peoples’ Choice Award.

So, gather favorite art pieces that you want to share with the world. The Virtual Art show is open to everyone, so be sure to share the site with your friends and family!

Our optional theme for September is “September Morning”. If you have a piece of art or want to create a piece that evokes a feeling of mornings in September, we look forward to experiencing it! If you have artwork that you want to include in the show, but it does not meet the theme, that is OK. The Best of Show Award will be juried for art pieces that meet the theme or do not meet the theme, it is the judge’s choice. The People’s Choice Award will be by popular vote and also does not require that you use the theme.

Here are the important elements of the show:
