71st Blossom Exhibit
On Friday, May 4th, Fremont Center for the Arts hosted the First Friday reception for it's 71st Annual Blossom Festival Fine Arts Exhibit, sponsored by Drs. Eric & Linda Carlson.
This year, 30 local & regional artists - both professional and emerging - have submitted over 61 pieces of original work to be juried & judged, with First Place receiving $400 cash prize. Tara Sevanne Thomas, Educational Director at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, has graciously accepted the role of judge for the exhibit.
Since 1947, FCA (then known as the Fine Arts Council) has presented this show in May to coincide with the Canon City Music & Blossom Festival. Consequently, nearly half of FCA's Permanent Collection was acquired through the Blossom Festival Fine Arts Exhibit with the purchase of the winning pieces starting in 1947. FCA will display several pieces from our Blossom collection during May. Be sure and check the dates on the tags.
Something new is in the works for our 72nd Blossom Exhibit, it has to do with Jazz Downtown! Yes, we will be combining the two events to bring even more fun to our May First Friday next year.
