Calling All Artists
Spring Fling Art Show
May 1-2, 2010
On Saturday, May 1st and Sunday, May 2nd, the Mentone Area Arts Council will sponsor the Spring Fling Art Show in Mentone, Alabama. This is one of Mentone's busiest weekends as visitors from all over the southeast descend upon Mentone to enjoy the beginning of a season of warm weather in clear and refreshing mountain air.
In addition to the Art Show, there will be an automobile show at the Mentone Inn and another art show in Valley Head, just a few miles from Mentone. Also on Saturday night, a Spring Fling Party will be held at the Mentone Springs Hotel which will include food and entertainment by the Collard Greens, a jazz ensemble from Rome, Georgia.
The Art Show will be held at Mason Park, the Mentone Springs Hotel, grounds of the Mentone Inn, and in Rue Gardens. All of the above sites are within ready waking distance of one another and are located in the Town Center of Mentone.
The Show will run from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM on Saturday, and 11:00 AM until 5:00 PM on Sunday. Artists are also encouraged to show their work at the Mentone Springs Hotel during the Spring Fling Party on Saturday night with the condition that the Hotel has requested a 10% price reduction for sales made during the Party as an incentive for the general public to attend the event(the cost of the Party for members of the general public is $35 per person).
There is no charge for participating in this Show. You will be assigned a general location for your booth and setup is on a first come, first serve basis at the assigned location.
The Show will be advertised throughout the region and a large turnout for the Show is anticipated.
Please reserve your place in the Show by emailing Neal Whitt, President of the Mentone Area Arts Council at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there. We think you will have a really great time.
As always, please feel free to pass this information along to anyone you think might be interested in participating.
