River Community Church is inviting artists aged 5 to 13 to submit their original artworks and photographs for its third annual children’s community art and photography show. Children may submit one entry in each category (art and photography) to this free show that begins Sunday, August 24.

The exhibit will be on display from August 24 to September 28. Viewing will be on Sundays, from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm, and also by appointment (contact Pastor Steve Rhodes at steve@rivercommunity.org).

It is preferred that submissions be framed or on gallery-wrapped canvas, with a wire on the back for hanging. However, works that are matted, with a firm backing, will also be accepted. Take-in will be Sunday, August 17 (8:45 am – 12:30 pm) and Monday, August 18 through Wednesday August 20 (10 am – 4 pm). Entry forms and more information are available online at http://rivercommunity.org/events_items/childrens-art-show/, at the church at 36367 Old Perkins Road in Prairieville, and also by contacting Jeanie Liehe at 225-673-5484 or einaej22@yahoo.com.

The show will be judged by a guest judge for best artwork in two age categories and for best photograph; ribbons will be awarded for first, second, and third place in each group.
