Norton’s Floral Competition 2017 is ON!

Norton’s Floral Competition 2017 is ON!

START PAINTING!  Technique is up to you!
You can use any style size, style, 2 dimensional medium, unframed, or framed.
Please have a clear legible signature on painting and marked on the back.
Your completed painting must be ready to hang and must be dry. You can mark it with a sale price if you wish, or NFS. Bring entries to the Hospitality tent by 9AM show morning, Saturday, April 22nd, 2017. Judging will be at 9. Exhibitor entries can be picked up soon after 9 to allow you to sell the painting in your tent. Volunteer paintings may remain on display at Hospitality.

A huge thanks to Norton’s Florist who once again will sponsor the competition within our spring show that is open to volunteers (in any capacity) as well as exhibitors. A ribbon & publicity go to the winner as well as a gift certificate from Norton’s. It’s yet another way the club offers to keep every member involved. New members can get their feet wet as a selling artist. The volunteer paintings can stay all day for sale at Hospitality! Exhibitor paintings go back to their booths after judging.

2017 Art in the Village – SAVE THE DATE

Our annual spring art show has been voted Mountain Brook’s best event. We receive 4,000 to 6,000 visitors annually, with lots of much-appreciated media exposure. Don’t miss this fun, widely anticipated, family-friendly show, recently re-named “Art in the Village”, and which will feature over 85 gifted, local artists!


April 22, 2017, Saturday 9-4 PM, “Art in the Village”, Crestline Sports Field

While you DO need to be an active member with 2-dimensional art ONLY to exhibit (HERE’S how to join), you do NOT need business licenses to participate in our shows. The club provides a group business license for Mountain Brook, Jefferson County, and Alabama. If you have a limited number of pieces to display, you may share a tent, however, registration fees are not discounted for artists if you plan to share, due to the cost of publicity for each participating artist.

Please check HERE for show day information, HERE for tips on making inexpensive display panels, and on the following link for tips on purchasing tents, and what to expect of an outdoor show.

Registration Form 2017  Please don’t delay in registering. We are no longer able to give a priority pre-registration period to long-time members.

If you pay via paypal, you must pay on our website with either a credit card or a paypal account. You do NOT have to have a paypal account to pay via paypal. Along with your payment, please download, fill out, scan and email the 5 page pdf registration form,  and mail with your check.

We look forward to seeing you at 2017 ART IN THE VILLAGE!
