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.

The exhibit, which is on display until Oct. 9, features work from local and regional artists in the state and is “really inclusive,”
