The River District Artists are sponsoring a photography contest during the upcoming Studio Stroll, November 14th-15th, 10am-6pm. The contest is open to all ages and all skill levels. To join the group, read the guidelines, and upload submissions go to, www.flickr.com/groups/riverartsdistrict. Judges will select first, second, and third place winners. The first place winning photographer will receive $100, second and third place each receive $50.
During the Stroll more than one hundred and thirty studios in twelve distinctive historic buildings are open to the public within a one-mile by half-mile area. The district also offers visitors a variety of options for dining and a brewery/tasting room. Throughout the weekend, Asheville Historic Trolly Tours provide a free shuttle service between buildings. The Trolly Tour begins and ends at the Chamber of Commerce on Montford Avenue, and makes a 30-minute loop through the district.
Full color maps with directions and a list of participating artists are available now at the Asheville Chamber of Commerce, The Asheville Area Arts Council, River District studios and galleries, and other locations around town.
