Rewarding invitation for artists has deadline

Polly Barrett’s watercolor, "A Wild Ride," was exhibited in the 2014 COFA. It will be smooth sailing for artists who submit their works for the 2015 COFA by July 13.

The opportunity for artists to display their work in the Community of Fine Arts Show for the month of August provides exposure of their work for sale and a possibility of prize money. But registration for the 2015 COFA, a juried art show, which the Westlake-Westshore Arts Council founded 16 years ago, has a July 13 deadline for art work submission.

The W-WAC accepts works for the COFA from amateur/semi-professionals, 18 years or older, and in five categories: Oil/Acrylic; Watercolor; Drawing/Pen & Ink; Charcoal/Pastel; and Photography.

The 16th edition of COFA will take place August 3 through 29 at Westlake Porter Public Library, which has graciously hosted the event for the past several years. 

Details of how works are submitted for possible entry, fees, prizes and other pertinent information are outlined on the entry form (PDF). For more information contact Robert Pearl at 440-554-7522 or email at
