Artists - Submit your work beginning June 3! From the Pike Road Arts Council:
James R. Rogers suggests that “the pursuit of happiness” refers to activities people perform to occupy their life from a material, spiritual and moral perspective. Americans enjoy a variety of activities from home, work, and play that contribute to our level of happiness. Thoughts that immediately come to mind are sports, art, hobbies, boating, fishing, hunting, working on an old car, shopping, friends, and church. This call is asking artists to communicate the pursuit of happiness through art in any medium. Show us your understanding of the Pursuit of Happiness!
There is no fee for entry, and artists may enter up to two works. Please follow this link for full submission details: https://rb.gy/0cmqk
