Greentown Art & Photography Show is accepting entries until Monday | Way of life

Although Greentown does not have an art gallery, members of the city’s Main Street Association still try to promote local artists.

On August 13, local artists will be exhibiting at the Meridian Street Christian Church, 205 N. Meridian St., for the Greentown Art & Photography Show.

The art will also be exhibited on August 20 and 27.

Greentown performers have until Monday to register for the show.

The exhibition will cover three styles (photography, 3D art and 2D art) in five categories. There are amateur and professional levels for people aged 65 and over, as well as general admissions. The show also accepts art for a junior category.

Lisa Stout, treasurer of the Greentown Main Street Association, said artists should apply for the category that best describes them. For example, high school students can apply for the general category.

Contestants can register for the show by calling Stout at 765-610-8461.

Once the show is open, visitors will be able to vote for their favorite submission. The crowd favorite will receive the People’s Choice Award and $20.

“We encourage people to bring their families and vote,” Stout said, adding that each visitor could submit a new vote each day of the show.

The judges will also select the first place winners for each of the categories before the show opens to the public.

The show is free and open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday.
