From press release
OREGON, Ill.—Hundreds have attended The Fields Project Fine Arts & Crafts Festival over the years, viewing the craftsmanship of talented artists from throughout the region. Anyone who has original fine art and fine craftwork, including painting, graphics, sculpture, jewelry, photography, drawing and artisan crafts including clay, fiber, glass, metal, leather, paper and wood, is invited to sign up at www.fieldsproject.com/fine-arts-and-crafts-show. Or, call (815) 732-6347. Deadline for applicants is May 21.
Six-hundred dollars in cash prizes will be awarded. Two-hundred dollars will be given for each of these categories: Best of 2D, Best of 3D, and Best of Show, to be judged by members of the Fields Project Committee. This show has a $65 entry fee. A 12-foot-by-12-foot display space will be provided. There will also be food and entertainment.
The Fine Arts and Crafts Festival is Sunday, June 27, at Mix Park off Route 2 at Route 64 in Oregon, Ill. The public is invited to attend free of charge.
The Fields Project brings art and agriculture together in a nine-day program that allows artists to experience firsthand the lifestyle that puts food on the table, clothes on our backs, and even fuel in the gas tank.
In addition to plein air art and photography, a hands-on art/agriculture experience is offered to artists who create a field sculpture on a pallet of grassland. This work of art is designed by the artist and, with the help of a farmer and his tractor, mowed onto the grassland. This process takes several days and can be seen and photographed from the air the weekend of the Fine Arts and Crafts Festival. For more information, go to www.fieldsproject.com.
