MKAF seeking artists for 26th annual Festival of the Arts
DESTIN — The Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation (MKAF) is now accepting applications for the Adult Collaborative Art Exhibit component of the 26th annual Festival of the Arts Oct. 30 through Nov. 3 at the Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village in Destin.
One of the unique features of the festival is the Collaborative Art Exhibit, which showcases the work of seasoned and emerging adult artists and local high school student artists competing for the $850 McIlroy Awards given in honor of the late Patricia McIlroy, an MKAF advocate and patron.
Artwork should be of an artistic caliber associated with a juried fine art show. Artists in the Adult Collaborative Exhibit can display and/or sell up to three pieces of artwork.
The competition is open to the first 25 eligible applicants. The entry fee is $30 per person for up to three pieces of art. The application deadline is Sept. 16. To receive an application, contact Deb Nissley at the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or 850-650-2226.
Student applications will be handled through high school art teachers.
