The Club restaurant, located at Barons Creekside Resort, will serve as the event headquarters and be open Thursday from 9am-5pm for artists to cool off. Complimentary iced tea and water will be available, as well as the use of the restrooms. Lunch and snack options will also be available for purchase.

There will be two winning categories: Best of Show, judged by Layne Johnson and Peoples Choice Award, selected via Instagram votes.

Artists may prepare as many works as they like but may enter only ONE piece for judging.

Pieces submitted for judging must be framed and strung for hanging. Gallery wrapped canvases with hanging wire are acceptable.

Canvases or canvas panels must not exceed the dimensions 11 inches x 14 inches.

Paintings submitted for judging must be delivered to The Good Art Company (218 West Main Street) on FRIDAY, September 27th between at 9:00am and 11:00am. Doors will close at 11:00 am and no paintings will be accepted after the deadline.

Best of Show Award judging will take place Friday, September 27th from 12:00pm to 4:30pm. Ribbons will be hung on winning pieces at the conclusion of the judging.

The Peoples Choice Award will be determined by which painting that gets the most LIKES on The Good Art Company Instagram posting of the individual competing paintings. Exhibit paintings will be photographed, posted on The Good Art Company Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/thegoodartcompany) and the artist will be tagged. Artists are encouraged to repost and prompt their followers to vote for them. Voting for the Peoples Choice Award begins as soon as the painting is posted on Instagram between 11 am-12 noon and ends Friday September 27th at 6:00 PM.

Winners will be announced at 6:30 pm at the Artist Champagne reception held at The Good Art Company.
