Young artists are invited to create a work of art on the theme My Beautiful McIntosh that express “what’s beautiful to you in this place you call home.”
Examples are PLACES and THINGS like your yard, Sapelo Island, where you fish, a garden, church, house, boat, etc.), NATURAL FEATURES like rivers, streams, trees, beach, marsh, sunshine; ACTIVITIES like boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, playing outside; WILDLIFE – animals, birds, sea turtles and other creatures that live here; FAMILY and PETS;
Work can be two- or three-dimensional. Wall art that is framed or mounted and ready to hang with a cord or wire works best with the gallery’s display system. Limited accommodations can be made for unframed or unmounted work.
