Public reception honoring the Colfax banner artists

Each year the Colfax Arts Council sponsors the Banner Contest that provides Colfax with creative and colorful street banners. Join the council as they celebrate the 2013 banner artists during a public ceremony and reception on Thursday, June 6 at 7 p.m. in the Colfax Library. Everyone is invited to mingle with the artists, view the banners and enjoy tasty refreshments during this fun community celebration.

During the ceremony, this yearís artists in both the youth and adult categories will be recognized and the winners of both the Peopleís Choice award and the Artistís Choice awards will be announced. The Peopleís Choice award is based on public voting with a number of locations around town collecting the ballots while a panel of qualified artists from around the region selects the Artistís Choice award.

Participating banner artists for 2013 are Chais Anderson, Jerry Jones, Tammy Lewis, Loretta Paulson, Ashley Richman, Lynnea VanTrease and Craig Whitcomb.

Voting for the Peopleís Choice awards continues through June 5. For more information about the Banner Reception contact Debbie Snell of the Colfax Arts Council at 397-3791.
