CALL FOR ARTISTS!!
The Hot Springs Area Cultural Alliance (HSACA) is reviving its 2005 Adirondack Chair Exhibition and Auction on April 23, 2022. Arkansas artists are invited to enter, whether they have just started exploring the visual arts, or have been painting for many years. Artists who are selected to paint an Adirondack chair will receive $500. All Arkansas residents are eligible to enter.
The exhibition and auction will take place in Hot Springs, Arkansas, offering artists an extraordinary opportunity to showcase their artwork to patrons and tourists for several weeks.
HSACA will be taking requests for entry through November 30, 2021. A packet will be sent containing a chair template that is to be painted representing the design of the finished Adirondack Chair. Artists must return their completed template by January 1, 2022. Mid-January a panel of jurors will select 15 templates from all the entries and notify the winning artists.
The handcrafted Adirondack chairs will be ready for pickup from HSACA by February 1, 2022, to paint according to the artist’s submitted design.
The completed chairs will be returned by March 1, 2022, at which time the artist will receive $500 with a chance to win one of three People’s Choice Awards in the amount of $500, $300, or $200, at the final event held April 23, 2022.
