Artists Wanted for Autumn Arts Grapes & Grains Festival

The 25th annual Autumn Arts Grapes & Grains Festival is scheduled for Oct. 4. Applications are now being accepted from artists who would like their paintings and photographs displayed and judged. The deadline is Sept. 26.

This is a great venue for artists to showcase their work, and to have the chance to win cash prizes for the “Juried Art” and “Peoples Choice” awards. The artists also may choose to make their art available for sale.

The festival will open with an evening reception at 6 p.m. Oct. 3. The Fine Art Show will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 4.

Registration forms and rules can be acquired from the Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department administration office, at 615 S. McClelland St., or downloaded at www.ci.santa-maria.ca.us/3087-FineArtShowApplication.pdf.

For more information, call 805.925.0951, ext. 260.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
