FALLBROOK – The popular Art of the Avocado competition, part of the annual Avocado Festival, is now open, due to the generous sponsorship of Fallbrook Propane Gas Company.
The competition is open to anyone, of any age. Any artistic medium may be submitted; the only restriction is that the viewer can actually “see” an avocado somewhere in the work.
Competition takes place in two categories: 2-Dimensional and 3-Dimensional. Cash prices awarded in each are first place – $200, second place – $100, and third place – $50. In addition, Brandon Gallery will award a cash prize for its Brandon Gallery Director’s Award and La Caseta Fine Mexican Restaurant will sponsor the People’s Choice Award.
The entries in the Art of the Avocado competition will be on display at Brandon Gallery, 105 North Main Avenue from April 5 through 28, including the day of the Avocado Festival, Sunday, April 13.
Awards will be presented on festival day at 2 p.m. at Brandon Gallery.
To enter the contest, contact Anita Kimzey, (760) 731-0277 or email a.kimzey@sbcgobal net.
Rules and entry form can also be downloaded from the Chamber of Commerce website at www.fallbrookchamberofcommerce.org. Sign up early, as space is limited.
