January 15, 2019

BULLHEAD CITY — The River Valley Artists Guild (RVAG), Inc. is preparing to have its 18th Annual Black Mountain Art Show on Feb. 28-March 1.

The show will take place at Mohave Community College, 3400 Highway 95 in Building 600.

For artists who would like to participate, there are a couple of important facts to be mindful of.

The most important thing to remember is that the application deadline is Feb. 1.

RVAG members can pay $45 to submit eight pieces of art; for nonmembers, the price is $65. Artists who would like to submit up to two pieces will pay $12 if they’re RVAG members and $15 if they’re not.

Artists have 14 categories to chose from. The categories listed by the RVAG are: acrylic/oil painting, pastel painting, watercolor painting, alternative painting, ceramics, jewelry (beadwork, fire to metal, handmade, and wire work), digital fine art (no film), photography (color and monochrome), assemblage/construction, drawing, fiber art/textiles, glasswork, mixed media and collage and sculpture.

For further information regarding the different categories, contact RVAG Secretary Georgia Craig at 409-795-4941.

“Ribbons will be given out to the winners but there will be no cash prizes,” said Craig. “Although the Best of Show for second and third place will win a one-year membership into the Guild.”

Voting will take place from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. with the artists reception and awards given out at 5 p.m. March 1.

“We have assembled three respected individuals from the community as judges and one of those judges will be (city council member) Kathy Bruck,” said Craig. “The judges will be using a point system which the Guild provides,” Craig continued. “The money collected will go towards a Mohave Community College art student scholarship and awards, such as gifts and ribbons for highs school and middle school (depending if they participate). We also use part of the money to keep the Guild in the black.”
