Call to artists from Bossier Arts Council: two and three-dimensional masks ; deadline Dec 16 for Dec 20 exhibit

Join Bossier Arts Council in initiating the Carnival Season by submitting to a Mask Themed exhibit / fundraiser for the Bossier Arts Council, says Theresa Ratcliff.

Prizes will be awarded for Best of Show, 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place, as well as People’s Choice in Both 2D and 3D categories.

Because this is a fundraiser, there is an entry fee of $10.00 per artist to help cover expenses.

1. 2D: This category allows artists to submit any 2D mask related/themed artworks in the media of their choice - including graphics, paintings, photography...

For this competition, Please do Not sign your work on the Front – sign on the back only! There will be a special competition to see who can correctly identify the most artists by their work. If your artwork has already been signed, we will find a subtle way to cover the signatures until the competition is completed.

2. 3D - Artists submitting are asked to create 3D carnival style masks using the medium of their choice. Please do Not sign your creation where visible - there will be a competition throughout this event to see who can correctly match the most artists to their mask.

Drop off: December 16th between 2:00 and 6:00
Exhibit: December 20th – January 20th

Awards Ceremony and Closing Reception: January 20th at 6:00 pm.

All entries must be Mask Themed 2D or 3D art. All media, such as acrylic, collage, oil, pastel, photography, sculpture, etc... accepted. All works must be ready to hang or display. Please bring all works wrapped in paper (or otherwise covered) so that the artist is kept secret!!

All questions or concerns should be directed to Theresa via email at or or by phone at 318-393-3601.
