Odd stuff is happening at the FEC

Sept. 15, 2018 — The Florence Events Center (FEC) Gallery Committee invites artists to submit artwork, including 3-D and photography, for an October exhibit that is both seasonal and unusual.

Fall lends itself to great artistic opportunities, including beautiful autumn colors, the fall harvest and wildlife preparing for winter. It is also a time for scarecrows, ghosts, hobgoblins and everything spooky to get ready for Halloween.

The Gallery Committee knows artists will have fun with this “Everything Odd-Umn” theme. 

Applications are available by visiting the FEC at eventcenter.org or picking up a paper copy at the FEC office, 715 Quince St., during normal business hours.

The fee is $15 per rod for up to three pieces (depending on size of art pieces), or up to three pieces of 3-D art for display in the glass case.

Application deadline for submissions is Friday, Sept. 21.

Accepted artists will bring art pieces to the FEC on Sept. 25 during the hours of 9 to 11 a.m. Art must be picked up by Oct. 30.

The community is invited to attend the “Everything Odd-Umn” Artist Reception on Friday, Oct. 19, from 5 to 7 p.m. in Gallery 5. This event will be going on at the same time as Patricia Stutz’s reception, which will be happening in Gallery 1. Attendees are welcome to enjoy both events.
