Winter Fine Art ShowThe Winter Annex Fine Arts Show will be held on Feb 7-8, 2015. There will be no theme for the winter show so you may create whatever you like, or enter a painting completed within the last 5 years. Artists wishing to participate will find the application form on the website www.visualartsassociation.com under “Forms.” Send applications and the $5.00 entry fee to Jo Ruth Patterson, 324 Ellenton Run, The Villages, FL 32162 by January 30, 2015. We look forward to seeing some creative and beautiful art work.
