Local artists will display works at annual show

Published 9:37am Tuesday, October 1, 2013

The 39th annual Ironton Artists Association Fall Art Show will be 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Central Christian Church on Seventh Street.

A few changes have been implemented for this year’s show, such as reducing the entry fee for children.

“We want to encourage children to participate,” Pati Payne, show organizer and founder, said. “In the past, children had to pay the same fee as adults, but we have changed that.”

This year children 18 and under will pay only $3 for each piece of art submitted to the show.

A change to the adult entry fee is also in place. Each artist will still be required to supply his or her own easels but the $20 fee will be for five pieces of art instead of four. Each additional piece of art submitted will still be $5 each.

“We have also added a miniature category to this year’s show,” Payne said. “All miniatures will be displayed on screens with fasteners so the artists won’t have to worry about putting them individually on an easel.”

Retired Huntington High School art teacher Leona Mackey will be the judge at the show and money awards, ribbons, seven purchase awards and door prizes will be given out beginning at 2:30 p.m. Artists registration and set-up will be from 9 to 11:30 a.m.

The show is free and open to the public and brochures and entry forms are available at the Greater Lawrence County Area Chamber of Commerce or from Payne, who can be reached at 740-533-1516 or

The American Association of University Women will have a book sale at the event.
