Summit County Fair accepting visual art submissions
The annual Summit County Fair, which runs Aug. 3-10, brings the community together for a week of food, fun, exhibits, demonstrations, contests, and rides.
In addition to the demolition derby, the livestock showings, the 4H displays, parade, pie baking contest, and the little buckaroo rodeo, the fair hosts the annual Fine Arts Exhibit, which gives local artists the opportunity to share their creative work with the public.
The exhibition’s submission categories include photography, oil/acrylic painting, watercolor, graphic arts, sculpture, pottery, glass and metal.
Youths in (grades 9-12 and adults are eligible for awards and prizes that offer ribbons and cash premium prizes.
