Beaver Brook seeking art for display at annual fall festival

HOLLIS – The Beaver Brook Association invites the public to its 36th annual Fall Festival & Nature Show.

Artwork by dozens of regional artists will be on display at Maple Hill Farm, and the featured artist is Zachary Zahn, of Wilton.

Beaver Brook is calling for artists to make this event special. All original artwork by both 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.

Artwork sought is 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. 16-19 at Maple Hill Farm, 117 Ridge Road. All rules, details and entry forms can be accessed at www.beaverbrook.org. You can also pick up a form at Maple Hill Farm.

Visitors will be able to judge the artwork by voting 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 historic Cooper Shed. We encourage children of all ages groups to submit their work up until Sept. 19.

The festival is the signature annual event of Beaver Brook Association. There will be activities for all age groups. More details about the activities can be found on the Beaver Brook website.

The festival will be held 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Sept. 24-25 at Maple Hill Farm, 117 Ridge Road. Admission is free.
