People’s Choice —a unique art exhibit to be held March 14-April 4 — is sponsored by the Farmington Downtown Association and the non-profit Three Rivers Art Center.

The event will merge artists of the Four Corners, downtown Farmington businesses and the public.

Artists will be accepted on a first-entered basis until venues are full. Entries can be submitted Dec. 1-Feb. 1.

Entry fee is $25.

The event culminates at the April 4 Downtown Art Walk. Members of 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 art work on site and make a selection for the Juried Award.  This is a unique opportunity for artists to exhibit their work.
