Attention Fresno area artists

The deadline to submit artwork for the February Mardi Gras Art Show sponsored by Kings River Arts Council (KRAC) is January 29, 2010. This year’s venue will be inside Mainstreet Café on G Street in Reedley. Mainstreet Café is planning lunches and dinners to complement the Mardi Gras theme, throughout the month of February.

Local artists are encouraged to submit art containing images of clowns, mimes, jazz musicians, and other Mardi Gras related themes. Only wall art that is no larger than 36” x 36” and is ready to hang will be accepted for the display. You may submit your artwork to Melanie Fountain at 1281 E. Alluvial Ave., Ste. 101 in Fresno or at Shinn Photography Studio at 1015 G. Street in Reedley. If you are mailing your submission, send it to the Reedley address and include return postage. The submission fee is $20 per piece for non-members and $15 per piece for members.

Individual artists are responsible for any sales transactions for their own pieces. All displayed art may be available for purchase. However, there is no prospectus for the month-long event.

Additional art shows are in the works for this spring.  For more information, contact KRAC at 559-480-ARTS or email to
