Artwork sought for 35th Beaver Brook Fall Festival

HOLLIS – The Beaver Brook Association invites the public to its 35th annual Fall Festival & Nature Show.

Artwork by dozens of regional artists will be on display at Maple Hill Farm. The featured artist is Denise Rainis, of Dunstable, Mass.

Beaver Brook is calling for artists to make this event special. All original artwork by amateurs and professionals is eligible.

The accent of the artwork should be on New England settings, but art reflecting a nature theme elsewhere in North America may be included.

Recent artwork is preferred. The media used can be color or black and white photography, prints and paintings – watercolors, oils, acrylics, pastels, collage and mixed media – and indoor and outdoor sculpture in various media.

This is a non-juried event, but the Beaver Brook Association retains the right to reject any work that is considered to be inappropriate.

Beaver Brook will accept artwork for display from Sept. 18-21 at Maple Hill Farm, 117 Ridge Road. If you are interested in displaying your work at the Fall Festival, find all rules, details and entry forms at beaverbrook.org. You can also pick up a form at Maple Hill Farm.

Visitors will be able to judge the artwork by voting for the People’s Choice Art Award during the weekend. Prizes and ribbons will be awarded to winners and their names will be posted on the website.

There is also a children’s art exhibit in the Cooper Shed. Children of all age groups will be able to submit their work until Sept. 21.

The Fall Festival is the signature annual event of Beaver Brook Association. It also will include activities for all age groups.
