We're kicking off our year with a wonderful guest artist who is local to Longmont!
Mark Ludy! Born in 1973 in Seattle, Washington. The youngest in a family of 5. He grew up in the shadow of others with a doodling obsession and an imagination daily fueled.  At the early age of 18 he recognized his calling to be a 'communicator' - be it through his pen, his drawing or his voice. With this he set out to use his talent and give what he had to the world. Today he continues to create stories, tell stories and bring them to life through illustration. Touching hearts, stirring hearts and challenging the status quo of thought and action.

To view some samples of his artwork, please visit his website.

Celtic Fest Art Show and Competition
Frederick CO, Sept 30th 2017

This  September 30th  will be the first annual St. Brigit's Celtic Fest in Frederick Colorado, a day-long festival of music, food, dancing, games, benefiting several community service projects in Frederick.  

Brigit, along with Patrick, is one of the patron saints of Ireland, and one of things celebrated about her is her patronage of the arts.  So one of the features of Celtic Fest will be an art show and competition, open to artists of all age groups.

Entries can be in any medium, and must have a Celtic theme, in whatever way that speaks to you.  Sources of inspiration might be Irish or Scottish landscapes, Celtic music, legends, or history.  Celtic Fest especially encourages you to research Celtic and Irish symbols for inspiration for your pieces.

Each artist may enter up to three pieces, with an entry fee of only $5 per piece.  Art can be for sale (although this is not required,) with 30% of the sale price going to support Brigit's Bounty and other community service projects in Frederick.   Entry deadline is  Monday Sept 25th , art drop-off is  Sept 27-28 , and Celtic Fest event is  Saturday Sept 30th .

For more information and application form, please see Celtic Fest's Art Show page:
