18th Annual Fayette Art Show

Area artists and photographers, both youth and adult, are invited to enter their works as part of the upcoming 18th annual Fayette Art Show set for Saturday, Aug. 5. For the fourth consecutive year, artwork will be displayed in two separate venues throughout the day, CMU’s Ashby-Hodge Gallery (adult entries), and the Hoard County Courthouse (youth entries).  Always a much-anticipated event, the art show will be part of the ninth annual Fayette Festival of the Arts sponsored by the Fayette Area Heritage Association (FAHA) and other organizations.
Jennifer Kettle“For the first time in the long history of the show, entries will be judged by three noted professionals inside of just two,” said festival coordinator Jim Steele. “Since photography always is the most popular category, we’ve been fortunate to secure St. Louis professional photographer/educator Jennifer Kettler to handle this responsibility, both for youth and adults.”
She was a staff reporter and photographer for the Fayette newspapers in the years 2005 and 2006 and currently is professor of digital photography at the Art Institute of St. Louis.
The festival itself serves as Fayette’s culminating summer event and, as in past years, it will promote community awareness of the area’s rich historical and contemporary culture, with various music and drama organizations contributing their talents throughout the day, in addition to other activities including special exhibits, craft vendors and demonstrations, historic presentations, and public safety displays.
The festival lineup again will include performances from the Memorial Bandstand and from the courthouse lawn, including the well-known Columbia Community Band.
There also will be refreshments, a cake auction, displays of antique vehicles, and children’s outdoor activities.
Also, the annual Peacemakers Quilt Show, with an estimated 200 or more quilts on display, will run simultaneously in Linn Memorial Church on the CMU campus. Persons with limited walking abilities will be able to use shuttles from the courthouse to the campus.
Henry GrahamIn addition to  new judge Jennifer Kettler, another art show judge serving for the first time will be Henry Graham. A familiar local name, he is an adjunct professor of art history at CMU and was general coordinator of the festival for six years, beginning with its inception in 2009. Graham will judge all adult entries (professional and amateur) except photography.
Emily BennerReturning as a judge for the third consecutive year will be Ferguson resident Emily Benner who again will evaluate youth entries. A noted photographer and an art educator with more than 12 years of experience, she is a  nationally-certified art instructor in the West St. Louis County Rockwood School District.  
“With adult works shown in the Ashby-Hodge Gallery there is more space available in the courthouse for viewing student art and photography,” Steele notes. “In recent years we’ve put forth a concentrated effort  to encourage more youth entries.”
Exhibits at both locations will be open for public viewing from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 5. The art show continues as a major part of the festival.
Each art exhibit location has a separate on-site coordinator. Serving again this year are Patricia Fisher (adult show) and Penny Brown (student show).
Six entry fields are included in the exhibit with monetary prizes and ribbons to be awarded to winning works.                The fields are: Painting (oil, acrylic); Painting (water color or pastel); Drawing (pencil, pen and ink, or charcoal); Photography; Sculpture; and Varied Media.                     Each entry field is open to any artist irrespective of age or  classification. (Adults will be judged in one of two categories, professional or amateur.)
For youth entries there are three age classifications: Elementary, Middle School, or High School. A particular classification is based on the student’s status for the 2016-17  school year.
A total of up to four original entries may be submitted by any one artist, adult or student. The fee is $10 per adult entry (professional or amateur), with no charge for student entries. Adult entry checks are payable to the Fayette Area Heritage Association Festival. No advance registration is necessary.
Student entries will be registered and received in the courthouse office of the Howard County clerk between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on July 31 and Aug. 1.
Adult entries will be registered and received at the Ashby-Hodge Gallery in CMU’s Classic Hall on the same days between 3 and 7 p.m. (Anyone unable to come by on the assigned dates may register in advance at the Fayette newspaper office, 203 N. Main, during normal business hours.)
First, second and third place ribbons will be awarded for each of the six entry fields in all classifications. There also will be special awards, including Judges’ Choice and People’s Choice.
Entry forms, including full information about art show rules and regulations, are available on the Festival of the Arts web page - www.fayettefestival.org.            
The form also includes information about cash prizes. Printed copies are available at the Commercial Trust information desk and at the newspaper office. A form also may be secured via e-mail - jsteele@woodcreekmedia.com
