Entries previously entered in the Benton County Art Walk are not eligible for the contest. We hope to offer prizes according to medium (drawing, painting, and mixed media), dependent on the number of entries – please note medium with your entries.

Two-dimensional work (including photography) must be brought to the show framed (or stretched on a frame) and ready to hang with securely attached braided picture wire. No saw tooth, cardboard pop-out or plastic hangers will be accepted. Due to limited display space, frames may not exceed 36” in width. Artwork is entered at the artist’s own risk, although every precaution will be taken in handling.
