NSB library to host teen art competition
Creepy creations will haunt the New Smyrna Beach Regional Library in October.
The Friends of the Library are sponsoring the annual Teen Art Competition in honor of the American Library Association's Teen Read Week, Oct. 14 to 20, at 1001 S. Dixie Freeway, New Smyrna Beach.
This year's theme is "It Came from the Library." Area middle and high school students are invited to submit original works of art inspired by their favorite scary story or horror novel.
Cash prizes of $50 for first place, $35 for second place, and $25 for third place will be offered in both middle and high school categories.
Pieces must be the work of the young artist; any media is acceptable. Artwork will be displayed in the library and viewed by all ages; therefore, content must be appropriate for general audiences.
The submission deadline is 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15. Winners will be notified by telephone.
For more information, call (386) 424-2910, Ext. 111.
Atlantic Center for the Arts hosts graphic novel residency
For its 147th Artists-in-Residence Program, Atlantic Center for the Arts will host Master Artists: Ellen Forney, cartoonist; Megan Kelso, cartoonist; Dean Haspiel, cartoonist; and 23 associate artists.
Unlike most residencies at Atlantic Center for the Arts, this group will be focusing on just one media, the graphic novel.
During their stay, the graphic novelists will spend a portion of the day working with the master artist and their group in meetings, workshops, casual conversations and other activities. They are free to spend the remainder of their time pursuing their own projects. The residencies culminate with "INsideOUT," a public presentation of works-in-progress developed during the residency.
For information on the residency or events, call (386) 427-6975 or visit atlanticcenterforthearts.org.
