Guinea Heritage Association Fine Arts and Photography Contests!
We are celebrating the 40th Guinea Jubilee!
GHA is extending an invitation to artists and photographers to submit original works for the fine art and photography contests, respectively. We are seeking original works in both categories that capture the Guinea spirit and culture. The 2019 application deadline for both contests will be Sunday, June 9 (with $30 entry fee). Deadline for the submission of artwork and photography is Sunday, June 23, between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. at Buck Rowe’s Store Museum, the corner of Mark Pine and Guinea Road.
The Fine Art Print Contest
The selected 1st place entry for the Fine Art print contest will be used for the production of the official Guinea Jubilee Festival print, as in years past. The print will be sold to raise funds for the Guinea Heritage Museums.
The Fine Art Print Contest is sponsored by Hogg Funeral Home.
The Photography Contest
The selected 1st place entry for the Guinea Jubilee Photography contest will become a part of the Official Guinea Heritage Museum Photography Collection. A runner-up/honorable mention award will be given for each of the contests.
All art and photography entries will be displayed at a reception on Sunday, July 14, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend and meet the artists and photographers and view their work. Refreshments will be served and all participating artists/photographers will be recognized.
