The 17th annual Landfall Foundation Art Show, sponsored by Landfall Realty, is scheduled August 25-27 at the Dye Clubhouse, featuring works by 100 artists from the Wilmington area and across North Carolina.
The show is free and open to the public daily from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. “This year’s show offers an impressive array of mediums, styles, colors, and sizes,” said Landfall resident Martha Edgerton, 2016 Art Show chair. “There is literally something for every artistic taste.
Works on display will include oil, watercolors, acrylics, photography and sculpture in clay, metal, wood and mixed media. The works will be available for purchase, with a percent of art sales donated by the artists to the Landfall Foundation, according to Edgerton.
Distinguished oil painter Dan Beck is serving as judge of this year’s event. Beck – who recently moved to Wilmington – has won numerous awards for his work, most recently at the 2016 National Competition of Oil Painters of America in Dallas, TX.
His winning selections will be unveiled at the August 24th Preview Party, an invitation-only event for the artists, Art Show sponsors and Landfall Foundation sponsors.
The Landfall Foundation Art Show is one of four major charitable fund-raising events held each year in the community. The others are the Landfall Foundation Gala, the Legends of Tennis and the Quintiles Marathon.
“Last year, the Foundation raised more than $360,000 and made donations to 78 local charities and scholarships,” Edgerton said. For more information, please visit their website.
