Arts council holds peony poster contest

As part of the Homer Peony Festival to be held July 10-25, the Homer Council on the Arts sponsors a peony art contest for students in grades kindergarten through 12th. Entries are due at the arts council office at 355 W. Pioneer Ave. by 4 p.m. June 29.

Original art should be in the 8.5-by-11-inch size and done in portrait orientation. Work should be two dimensional in any medium, but avoid reflective media like glitter. The artist’s name, grade and parent(s) contact information should be on the back in pencil.

Independent judges will select one winner from each age group: K-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-9, 10-12. Winners will be published in the Homer News on July 9 and will receive a take-and-make art project: do-it-yourself peony window decals. Winning posters will be distributed during the Homer Peony Festival on July 10-25.

For more information, call the arts council at 235-4288.

As a reminder to be safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Homer artist Julie Tomich painted face masks on the figures of Tom Reed’s mural, “Tribute to Performing Artists,” as seen on July 3, 2020, on Pioneer Avenue in Homer, Alaska. Reed painted the mural in August 1985 on a retaining wall in front of NOMAR (then Proctor’s Grocery), and updated the mural with additional figures in 2008 under a city grant. Using a chalk-based, non-permanent paint, Tomich got permission from the city to add the masks to the mural. (Photo by Michael Armstrong/Homer News)
