Call to artists for Art in the Airport exhibit

The Asheville Regional Airport Authority is seeking artists for the next Art in the Airport exhibit. Western North Carolina artists are featured in this rotating exhibit program in a dedicated gallery space as well as throughout the airport terminal.

A new interactive online application form, which can be found at www.flyavl.com, now makes it easier for artists to apply for the show, which will be on display from March 6 until June 15. There is no fee to submit artwork, and all pieces are judged by area arts professionals.

Artists are invited to submit between four and ten pieces of artwork in any medium, bearing in mind that artwork must be suitable for all audiences.

Applications must be received by Friday, January 29. To be considered for Art in the Airport, artists must reside in Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Transylvania or Yancey Counties.

With approximately 600,000 passengers traveling through the Asheville Regional Airport each year, artwork on display receives tremendous attention, and pieces have sold from 90 percent of the previous exhibits.
