The Tulare Palette Club’s Annual Spring Art Show opens at the Heritage Art Gallery in the Tulare Historical Museum on Saturday, April 8. Entries will be accepted on Friday, April 7 from 5-7pm. Entry is open to anyone within Tulare County, with a limit of two entries per person.
This year’s featured artist is Bob Bottoms of Porterville.
“We try to pick someone who has been a member of the Palette Club for some time,” said Gladys Tweedy, co-chairman. “We thought he’d be good.”
The exhibit is expected to draw upwards of 50 artists with 85 entries. Entries are to be “anything that will fit into a frame,” including oils, watercolor, pastels, mixed media and computer art.
The show will be judged with first through fourth place, and honorable mention awards given in each category. Best of Show will earn $100 in prize money; the Popular Vote will earn $50. Voting for the Popular Vote will take place through the life of the exhibit and will be awarded at the close of the show.
The Artists Reception will take place on Friday, April 21 from 5-7pm, and is open to the public and free of charge. The show will run through May 21. Admission to Heritage Art Gallery exhibitions is always free.
