|Main Street - Spring Eggs Art Walk||Register by: Wednesday, March 05, 2014|
Main Street in Search of Area Artists Interested in Participating in 2014 Spring Eggs Art Walk
Go to DowntownBrenham.com for more details about this event.
Main Street is taking art to the streets of Downtown Brenham, and invites young and old, professional and amateur, to participate in the 2014 Spring Eggs Art Walk.
"We are excited to bring back this public art exhibition," said Margie Young, Chairman of the Main Street Design Committee, "and to be adding a Professional Category to the contest."
"Spring is a fantastic time of year to display the talent of local artists because there are so many people visiting the county," she added.
Although the base egg cut-out remains the same for each contestant, the artist can be inspired local influences, history, or the spring season.
All artists who enter will be supplied with a 3.5’ plywood egg and base. The basic egg can be altered by the artist, as long as it remains intact. Objects may be attached to the eggs, but should be attached in such a way that it cannot be easily removed.
Whether simply painted a solid color, or boasting of elaborate and intricate designs, an artist’s creativity and innovation should lead them. The look of the egg should attract attention because of its beauty, simplicity, creativity or ingenuity.
The eggs will be placed outdoors downtown in areas fully accessible to the public. Artists should consider the weather and other elements of nature when creating a design.
The artists may sculpt, transform and adorn the egg as he or she wishes.
"Thanks to generous local sponsors," Young added, "Main Street will again be offering cash prizes as awards for the winning egg art."
The Grand Prize of $250 is being sponsored by Main Street Brenham, and $125 cash prizes for the Judge’s Award, Most Creative and Most Artistic will be awarded in Professional, Amateur and Student (18 and under) Categories.
Artists should keep in mind that the audience will be broad-based and designs should be appropriate for public display. A review panel may reject a design that, in its sole discretion, does not adhere to the guidelines.
Main Street is able to offer this opportunity for the community thanks to sponsors Must Be Heaven, fancy that!, Bar B Boutique, Dona Lynn’s Unique Gifts, Branded Boutique, RE/MAX Advantage, Events by Room Service, Bev Frew and Puddin' Barnes
Entries are due by Wednesday, March 5, and are available through the sponsors, schools, the Visitor Center at The Simon, or enter online at www.DowntownBrenham.com

But, you may want to access the opt-in site via the link and review or supplement your contact information. There is no charge to you to participate. We hope that you will take time to participate in this program, so that we may better communicate with you during an emergency.
