Spring Into Art deadline nears

VALDOSTA — The entry deadline is this week for registering works for Spring Into Art 2014 at the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts.

Spring Into Art remains Valdosta’s largest, most inclusive, and democratic of art exhibits.

Though Spring Into Art is a juried show, it is unlike many other juried shows anywhere. Most exhibits accept many entries and then pare down those entries through the judging process to include half or typically less of the entries for exhibit.

As long as the artists keep to the rules and enter their entries by the deadline, everything entered in a Spring Into Art show is given exhibit space at the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts.

Though all works will be exhibited, judges will still pick favorites, and $5,000 in prizes will be awarded.

Entry registration date or postmark is Wednesday, March 19. Delivery dates for registered art are 10 a.m.-5 p.m., March 27-29, at the arts center, 527 N. Patterson St.

The Spring Into Art exhibition runs April 7 through June 4. The gala reception is scheduled for 6-9 p.m., April 7. More information: Call (229) 247-2787; or visit www.turnercenter.org.
