Annual CFA art show has largest showing to date

A glimpse of four of the accepted works for Community of Fine Arts

When the 2012 "Community of Fine Arts” opens on Aug. 6, it will mark the largest collection of works in its 13-year history. CFA is a juried art show presented annually by the Westlake-Westshore Arts Council.

This collection of original works by amateur and professional artists will be on display through Aug. 18 at Westlake Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Rd., during library hours. Following the two-week exhibit, a “Meet the Artists” reception, which is open to the public, will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18.

Jean Povinelli, who chairs this event, said 110 works of art have been accepted from 52 artists. All works are one of a kind and have not previously been exhibited in this show.

Neil Doren, Mike Guyot, Bill Mannion and Robert Moyer, four professional artists, will judge the accepted entries in four categories. A $150 cash award will be made for the first place choice in each of these categories: oil/acrylic; watercolor; charcoal/pastel/pencil/ink; and photography. 

The mission of the Westlake-Westshore Arts Council is to bring art to the public in a non-commercial setting. With the cooperation of Porter Library, the Community of Fine Arts is free and open to all.
