Art Center calling travelers for juried art show

The Austin Area Art Center wants to know where people have been, only, they want it expressed through art.

The AAAC has opened entries for its juried show “Places I Have Been.” and is inviting all area artists to show the places they’ve experienced in travels, whether exotic places abroad or simple drives to another state or city.

The first-place winner will receive $500. Second place will receive $100, and third will receive $75.

The exhibit will be held at the art center, 1301 18th Ave. NW, in the Oak Park Mall and will be on display from May 1 through June 2. People may apply in person. For more information, email austinartcenter@hotmail.com or call the 507-433-8451 during regular business hours, noon to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Also see Facebook or check out www.austinareaartcenter.com.

Deadline for entries is April 26. Artists ages 16 and older are eligible.
