Silver Arts Call For Artists
The SilverArts is a component of the Senior Games, which is a state of NC sponsored program. This program is a state wide Competition in 100 plus athletic events and an Art Competition in the 4 Art categories of the SilverArts, the Visual Arts, Heritage Arts, Literary Arts and Performing Arts. These events are open to all NC residents age 50 and over.
In Wilmington this program is over seen by the board of the “Senior Games by the Sea”. The events are held throughout Wilmington between the months of April and May. The Wilmington Art Association is in the 2nd year of participating in this program by sponsoring two categories of the SilverArts, the Visual Arts and the Heritage Arts. Both the Visual Arts and Heritage Arts have several sub-categories and each sub-category will be judged separately. Example: in the Visual Arts category, Oils are judged separately from Acrylics, etc.
Artists who win 1st,2nd and 3rd place in one of these sub-categories will have the opportunity to go to the state finals which will be held in Raleigh this Fall.
