Mum's the Word 2018
Draw, paint, photograph, or collage your best chrysanthemum for the Mum's the Word exhibition this October! As part of the 2018 New Bern Mumfest, various downtown businesses and galleries will display entries from the exhibit in their galleries and shops. Entries will be reviewed by a committee from the Mumfest planning committee and one winner's artwork will be selected for the 2018 Mumfest banner.
Entries must be dropped off to Bank of the Arts on September 21st & 22nd. Artists are asked to email a photo of their piece along with name, title, medium, and size before the drop off date to facilitate organization and publicity for the exhibit.
The winner of the 2019 "Mum's the Word Exhibition" will receive $200 and be used as the logo for 2019 Mumfest! Other works will be offered for sale at 70/30 consignment split, in the artists' favor.
