A call to artists has been issued for People’s Choice — a unique art exhibit held annually in Farmington, N.M.

This year’s People’s Choice will take place March 14-April 4.

Entries will be accepted Dec. 1-Feb. 1; the entry fee is $25.

People’s Choice  is sponsored by the Farmington Downtown Association and the non-profit Three Rivers Art Center.  The event will bring together artists of the Four Corners, Downtown Farmington businesses and the public.

Artists will be accepted on a first-entered basis until venues are full. The event culminates at the April 4 Downtown Art Walk.

The public will vote for their favorite piece. Winners will receive cash awards of up to $1,000.

A juried award of $500 has been added to this year’s event.  Durango artist Maureen May — painter, printmaker, actress and community activist — will view all the artwork on site and make a selection for the Juried Award.
