“It’s a great art, is rowing. It’s the finest art there is.” ~ George Pocock, as quoted by Daniel James Brown in “The Boys in the Boat”

 

Inspired by this year’s One Read selection, we invite Mid-Missouri artists to contribute works that explore a range of experiences and views of water, whether from shore or flying across the water itself, “in a poem of motion, a symphony of swinging blades.”

Cash prizes will be awarded for three winners, courtesy of Columbia’s Office of Cultural Affairs. The third place winner will receive $50, the second place winner $75 and the first place winner $125. The first place winner will also receive a $100 gift certificate from the Columbia Art League Art, good for use towards any class. Art will be displayed September 7-20 at Orr Street Studios with an opening reception, awards and program on Tuesday, September 9 at 6 p.m.
