Art Walk, set for April 27 in BG, seeks exhibitors

From BOWLING GREEN ARTS COUNCIL

Bowling Green Arts Council, in partnership with Downtown Bowling Green, is proud to announce Art Walk 2019, an art show in which businesses though out historic downtown Bowling Green will host artists’ displays and performances. Art Walk will occur on Saturday, April 27 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This year, the Art Walk will feature an exhibition of one piece by each individual artist at the Wood County District Public Library in addition to the displays at businesses, so visitors will have a chance to start out with a tempting preview.

Artists living within 50 miles of Bowling Green are eligible to participate and may display works in any size or medium as space and amenities of the chosen venue allow.

Artists are encouraged to find a venue, but help will be provided if needed by contacting BowlingGreenArtsCouncil@gmail.com

The entry fee for individual artists is $20. Non-profit organizations can pay one entry fee of $20 for any number of affiliated artists if profit from any sales exclusively benefits the organization and not the individual artists. No commission or fee on sales is taken. Brochures with all artist locations will be distributed throughout the area.

Entry procedures – online, by mail, or in person – are available on the BG Arts Council Website  www.bgartscouncil.com or from the Downtown BG office in the Four Corners Center, 130 S Main St, Bowling Green The deadline for registration and payment is April 1st.
