ART SHOWCASE AT LANDFALL
THE ANNUAL Landfall
Art Show & Sale, one
of the area’s premier
showcases for local art-ists,
is scheduled for August 16-18
at the Nicklaus Clubhouse.
“This show has always been to
support local artists,” says Olof
Preston, chair of the 19th iteration of
the juried event. “It’s great for estab-lished
artists as well as emerging
artists. We have some professional
artists, and some brand new artists
entering a show for the first time.”
Local studio artist Margie Worth-ington
will serve as the judge.
Artists grabbed all the available
spots within 30 minutes of registra-tion
opening, and Preston expects a
high turnout of art lovers to view and buy the works.
“I think the show has grown in popularity for several reasons,” she says. “There is a reputation that has developed about the show and its
high level of art that is displayed at a reasonable cost. Patrons are pleasantly surprised at the quality and creativity of the art and price points.”
The artists keep 70 percent of the proceeds, with 30 percent going to the Landfall Foundation. Last year’s event raised $30,000.
