16th Annual Thompson Community Art Show
The Thompson Community Art Show will be on exhibit
during the month of April 2019 at the Thompson Library/Community Center. Citizens who live, work, go to school, or own property in Thompson are eligible to submit original
visual artworks that they created.
2019 is again an Open Theme show.
There is no specified theme. If you like to work to a theme, we suggest “Inspired by Songs” which can be interpreted as you wish.
Your artwork can be realistic or abstract, in any media. An accompanying artist statement (optional) should describe the inspiration or process behind your artwork or be about yourself as an artist.
