Moxie Goes Artsy

LISBON— This year, the 37th Moxie Festival “Goes Artsy” and will once again be hosting a juried art show. The art show returns after a successful first year in 2018. New this year will be a first-ever Chalk Walk. Both events will take place on Saturday, July 13 from 8:00 a.m.to 4:00 p.m.

Lisbon artist and Moxie Festival committee member Marcea Crawford has issued a “Call for Artists” to participate in the Art Show. Set along the traditional parade route, this is a wonderful opportunity for local artists to show off their talents, gain exposure, and offer their art for sale.

All work must be handcrafted and original by the vendor. Works of art may include items such as paintings, photographs, prints, and sculptures.

The final deadline for registration is May 12.  Entrants will be notified of their acceptance in the show by May 24. For more information and questions about the art show, please e-mail Marcela Crawford at marcead2@gmail.com.

Festival organizers also wish to invite chalk artists to participate in the festival’s  street painting event that will carry out the “Moxie Goes Artsy” theme. Hosted by street painter and committee member Kirsten Eubank, there is no cost to register for this event where artists can create a pre-approved temporary image in a 6×6-foot space. There are larger spaces available for school groups.

Complete information and registration forms for both adult and student categories. A date and time will be set in the near future for a brief street painting seminar with helpful instructions. The deadline for Chalk Walk applications and proposed images is May 31. Entrants will be notified of their acceptance for the event by June 21.
