Bond's Beauty - All Wrapped Up by Mary Pat Smith
The Greater Jackson Arts Council has issued a call for entries for their August Live and Let Draw Competition: James Bond Invitational. The top prize will win $1,000, with up to $2,100 available for all places. Juried entries will go on display in an exhibition at the Mississippi Arts Center in August and serve as decor for the arts council's annual Storytellers Ball on Aug. 21.
The deadline is June 30 for two-dimensional works in the spirit of the James Bond theme. (Entries may have three-dimensional qualities but must hang on the wall for display.) Artists can submit photos, digital prints or digital files (no slides or original artwork). There is a $10 entry fee per piece.
The exhibition will be on display Aug. 4-30. An artists reception for the show, 2-4 p.m. Aug. 7, will be open to the public. Awards will be presented then.
