The Kelly Fitzpatrick Memorial Gallery is searching for artists to submit photos of their art, which will be reviewed by a Wetumpka business looking to purchase art prints.
Pictures of artists’ work will be submitted by thumb drive and must be in 16-inch by 20-inch, or related, sizes. The Kelly will gather all submissions into a slideshow for the local business, whose identity will be revealed at a later date, to review.
Once the artwork is chosen, artists will return with their original works, which will then be professionally photographed by local Barry Chrietzberg. If selected, artists will receive a $100 stipend. The pictures will be framed and hung on the walls of the business.
“We’re helping the business, the artists and sending work to a local photographer. It’s a win-win-win,” said Carol Hickman, The Kelly president.
The deadline to submit artwork is this Friday, Nov. 22 by 5 p.m. Thumb drives can be mailed to P.O. Box 641, Wetumpka AL 36092 or dropped off to Hickman’s house at 408 Old Montgomery Hwy., Wetumpka AL 36092.
