Calling Columbia County artists.

County officials are asking for artists to submit pieces reflecting the county’s heritage for the 2013 Columbus Day Juried Art Competition.

“We wanted a high-end art show, especially to highlight Columbia County,” Virginia Atkins, a county Community Events specialist. “We’re excited. It gives us an opportunity to look at Columbia County heritage and to celebrate current artists, local and regional.”

The art show will be held on Oct. 19 in conjunction with the sixth annual Columbus Day Festival and Art Show.

Atkins said artist can submit works in four categories – 2-D, 3-D, photography and artisan work.

The submissions should represent some aspect of Columbia County and its heritage such as landscapes, buildings, people and history.

“I think we’re going to get some very unique submissions,” Atkins said.

Seven cash prizes, totaling $2,000 will be awarded including Best in Show, People’s Choice and first, second and third places in each category.

A $30 entry fee and an online application must be received by Atkins’ office by Sept. 20. For an online application and information, call Atkins at (706) 312-7194 or email vatkins@
