Come watch artist’s in action, Saturday, June 12 on the lawn area adjacent to the Butte Creek Mill. Artists will begin showing up at 9 a.m. to begin warming up for the Butte Creek Mill’s 2nd Annual Plein Air Invitational and Art Competition. And, while you are at the Mill enjoying the artwork, be sure to visit the Annual Peddler’s Faire and various yard sales being offered throughout the community.
Last year’s art competition entries were exhibited for an entire month and visitors to the Mill cast their vote for the People’s Choice Award. Remaining pieces were professionally judged and awards were given at an artist’s reception at the Mill. Last year’s People’s Choice award went to Cheryl Magellen of Prospect, for her en plein air pastel landscape entitled “Millstream Romance.” Magellen will be one of the guest artists at this year’s Kick Off event.
The subject matter for this year’s competition will be recognizable images in and around Eagle Point. Entry deadline will be the end of August and will include various subject matter and artistic mediums. Artist’s prospectus will be available at the Kick Off.
