Sep. 8—Fees were waived for entries in the 57th annual Art Show of the Jamestown Fine Arts Association and that’s one reason entries are up this year, said Sally Jeppson, gallery manager at The Arts Center.
Jeppson said there are 53 artists and 128 pieces in this year’s show.
“That is one of the largest certainly in recent history,” she said.
The Medicine Shoppe is the sponsor of the show including the cash prizes that were awarded, Jeppson said.
In 2020, the entry fees were waived due to the coronavirus pandemic and the hardships artists were going through, she said.
“We decided this year to go ahead and do it again and get a sponsor for the exhibit so the sponsorship allows for the prizes,” she said.
The exhibit, which is on display until Oct. 9, features work from local and regional artists in the state and is “really inclusive,”
