The Outlook

The Alexander City Schools Education Foundation will host their annual Art Exhibit Monday, April 7 through Friday, April 11.

The event has been hosted annually since 1974 as a cultural activity for the Beta Sigma Phi sorority.

It has been hosted here in Alex City for the last five years.

The exhibit is an effort to promote local artists, as well as continually provide a venue for them to share their work.

Artists contributing work to the exhibit should have their offerings in by 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 3 at City Hall.

Categories include painting, drawings, photography, mixed medium and 3D Art.

Further, there are three age groups for participants: Adult (19 and up), Young Adult (13-18) and Children (5-12).

In the Adult and Young Adult categories, artists can enter up to two works, the first for $20 and the second for an additional $15.

Entrants in the Children’s category can enter one piece for $5.

There will be a reception Monday, April 7 at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall where winners will be announced.

Cash prizes will be awarded to winners and everyone in the community is encouraged to attend.

For residents who would like to get involved, you can become a 2014 Art Exhibit Patron for $25 or a 2014 Art Exhibit Sponsor for $100 or $200.

The ACSEF works to provide additional technology to students within the Alex City school system.

Recently, the group has put iPads in the hands of many area students and has plans for more.
