Affirmations goes off the wall

By | 2011-09-15T09:00:00-04:00 September 15th, 2011|Entertainment|

Affirmations begins a new annual event with its “Off the Wall Art Competition,” presenting the edgy and funky artists of Ferndale and supplementing the Funky Ferndale Art Fair.
Affirmations will display a number of local submissions in its newest addition, the Grab & Go SushiCo located in the front of the community center. The competition organizers seek to highlight Ferndale’s eclectic vibe and expand the non-artist’s perception of what art is.
Integrity Shows, presenters of the competition, will determine the top four entries on Thursday, Sept. 15. The general public will then determine first, second, third place and honorable mention throughout the weekend. Winners of the contest will receive cash and/or gift certificates to Grab & Go SushiCo.
Artists entered in the competition are able to sell their displayed art during the competition with a 20-percent consignment fee, entirely donated to Affirmations.
Off the Wall Art contestants’ art will be displayed during the Funky Ferndale Art Fair from 4-8 p.m. Sept. 16, and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sept. 17.
Affirmations Off the Wall Art Competition is sponsored by Affirmations, Integrity Shows, Between The Lines and Grab & Go SushiCo. For more information, visit http://www.goaffirmations.org or contact Mark McMillan, events manager and development assistant, at 248-398-7105.
