Friendship Art Club Show and Sale Sept. 29

This year’s annual Friendship Art Club Show and Sale is Saturday, Sept. 29 at the Lytle Community Center, located at 15049 Main St. in Lytle. The show opens at 9:00 am.
Twenty-two booths will display the work of local artists. Those participating in the show are eligible to enter three works in the various show competition categories. An independent judge selects prize winners, including Best of Show. The People’s Choice Award is chosen by ballots cast by the visitors at large and announced at the Show’s end.
The Friendship Art Club also sponsors the Student Art Show. This much anticipated event spot lights the work of four local high schools and six junior high schools. The entries are judged by a qualified judge and ribbons are awarded. Participating schools are also recognized for outstanding participation, based on a points system. Best of show is selected and there will also be a People’s Choice award, based on the ballots cast by visitors at large.
Another popular feature is the drawing. The drawing consists of a variety of donated items. The selection differs from year to year. Tickets are a dollar apiece and are available at the show. Members will also be selling tickets after August 14. Proceeds from the sale support the student scholarship program.
Booth applications are available through Show Chairman Jane Brown at 210-415-2564. For drawing questions or donations, call Chairman Liz Bendele at 210-854-4362.
