This annual show gives our members a wonderful opportunity to show-case their creative and artistic talents. There are several entry categories.

This competition is for members and amateur artists only. Participants must not have earned over $1,000 in sales or teaching of their own personal arts. The pieces submitted must have been created in the past year (2015). Submissions should be one item per category, per person.
Judging of entries will be by Janice Hamilton, professional actress and founder of Hamilton Fine Art & Auction, Inc. an art auction company based in Fort Lauderdale. All blue ribbon winners must be willing to enter their piece to the next level(s) of competition i.e. district and state. Bring item(s) to clubhouse morning of the show by 9:30 am to ensure display is ready for judging at 11:00 am.
ART: For our purposes, art is defined as painting/drawing, collage, mixed media, photograph, and sculpture.
CRAFTS: This is where your imagination can flourish. The categories are broad and varied. They range from ceramics and pottery to knitting and crochet to jewelry and metalwork and everything in between. If you are “crafty” and would love to have fellow FLWC and GFWC members enjoy your work, please enter it!
