If you have Christmas or holiday related paintings, photographs or 3 D pieces that represent the holidays, please plan to enter those in Rotation # 4. This notice gives you some time to create pieces or go through your supply and find pieces that will bring the holidays to life at the Cumming Arts Center.

As you know you are always welcome to bring whatever pieces you want to display, but this is just to remind you that if you have holiday themed pieces this is a great time to exhibit them.

Rotation # 4 will also include members of the community and we will be inviting the art students from all the High Schools in Forsyth County. This Rotation will not be juried but it will be professionally judged, awards will be given again. Plan now to participate in this Community Art Exhibit.
