26th Annual Judged Show is from March 2-April 6
The Society of Bluffton Artists will host its 26th Annual Judged Show March 2- April 6, and they need the community’s help to make this a successful event.
This creative competition is open to all artists in the Lowcountry area. Each year, the annual Judged Show produces truly exceptional artwork in our community and serves as the biggest fundraising events of the year for the non-profit art organization.
As a 501(c) 3 not for profit organization since 2004, SOBA depends on donations, sponsorships, art sales and volunteer members to put into action their mission of encouraging and supporting the art community in Bluffton SC. One of their goals is to provide scholarships to Bluffton High School seniors pursuing college level art studies and provides free after school art lessons to Bluffton area school children.
Additionally, SOBA’s art gallery and Center for Creative Arts is an asset to the Bluffton economy — with 61% of last year’s sales attributed to visitors from out of this market. Sponsors will can expect:
• Acknowledgement in Judged Show marketing — including social media, print advertisements and their website.
• Recognition at the Judged Show’s opening reception and acknowledgement signs will be displayed at the SOBA gallery.
“We greatly appreciate the sponsorship for the SoBA Judged Show, which ultimately encourages and promotes local artists at all levels,” said Barbara Pecce, SOBA’s educational coordinator.
