AFAS is Memorial Day weekend, May 23 & 24, as part of the Brookings Azalea Festival. We will be in a new location at the BHHS gym. The show which is part of the Azalea Festival has more than 500 attendees and is a great opportunity for artists of all levels and ages to display and sell art. $525 in prize money will be awarded. Thanks to award donors, Wright’s Custom Framing, Linda & Robert Beaudry, and donations in memory of Pat Stewart.
The show entry form will be available March 1 at Manley Art Center, Wright's Custom Framing & Art Supplies and Crescent Harbor Gallery. A PDF version will be available on line at wildriverscoastart.com or pelicanbayartsassociation.org . There will be four classes of adult art with awards given for 2-D art, computer generated art including photography, and 3-D art.

D eadline for entries is 4 pm, April 25 with no late entries accepted. The registration fee is $10 per entry for members and $15 for non-members with a maximum number of four entries per person. The first entry from each youth
will be covered by PBAA with a $3 fee for each additional entry. If you know young artists,
encourage them to participate.  
Many volunteers are needed to pull of the show: Registration, set-up, hosting, art demonstrations, and take-down are some of the tasks so think about how you can help. Volunteering is a great way to get to know other members! The April newsletter will include specific details about volunteer needs and sign-up sheets will be in the classroom at Manley Art Center. If you are willing to be part of the planning committee or would like to demonstrate your art during the show, send an email to Cilde Grover at cilde@copper.net or 541-412-8388 or pbaart@frontier.com.
