The Parkes Painting Group will be adding an artistic spin to this year’s Elvis Festival with a special Elvis Art Exhibition showcasing the work of artists from all over the central west.
Centrally located in the Uniting Church Youth Centre at 17 Court Street, Parkes, the exhibition will be featuring artwork with an Elvis theme, whether it is a portrait of the King himself, or an artwork depicting one of his songs.
Parkes Painting Group President Kerry Davies said the exhibition was a great opportunity to celebrate the skills and diversity of artists in the region.
She invited artists to submit three pieces with the closing date for entry forms Friday, 25 March. Artworks need to be delivered to the Parkes Uniting Church on Thursday, 14 April by 5pm.
The exhibition will run from Wednesday, 20 April to Sunday, 24 April, and the public will be able to vote for their favourite artist. There will be six prizes for the works with the most votes to be announced on the last day of the festival.
