Hundreds of pieces on display at annual art show

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) —  The 36th Annual Juried Spring Art Show kicked off this weekend. It is the official art show of the Azalea Festival.

The show is free to the public and runs until April 15th at the Hannah Block Historic USO Community Arts Center.

There are around 275 pieces of art work on display. The art work can be purchased and 30% of the money will go to the Wilmington Art Association.

“I just love people coming to an art show. It’s just so pleasing as an artist. It’s just a pleasure for us to have people come in, know they’re interested. If they are looking at something and don’t understand what the art is about, we are here to help them talk about it, it’s just delightful,” Art Show Chair Patti Chisholm said.

The art work that is in the show was selected by a judge. Chisholm said she thinks this is the best show yet.

The Juried Spring Art Show and Sale will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 7th through Wednesday, April 11th, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 12th through Saturday, April 14th and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 15th.
