Montgomery Bar Association’s 2nd annual countywide art contest for Montgomery County residents (ages 55+) is officially underway. This year’s Courting Art contest will again ask local artists, professional or aspiring, to explore on paper or canvas, what it is that they love about Montgomery County. Artists may drop off their artwork, along with a submission application (available on our Entry Info page), from 12:00 pm to 7:00 pm Wednesday, April 30th at the Montgomery County Community College (MCCC) Fine Arts Center in Blue Bell. Over 120 select pieces will be exhibited at the MCCC Fine Arts Center Gallery during a month-long exhibit from May 8 through June 12.
This past July, we officially welcomed
framed giclée prints of winning artwork from last year's inaugural Courting Art contest and exhibition with a dedication ceremony at the Montgomery County Court House. County commissioners, court administration, sponsors, and members of the bench and bar were on hand to congratulate the artists and thank them for their participation and contribution to this courthouse rejuvenation project.
