Upstate art festival Artisphere is inviting the community to participate in its Remotely Creative Challenge until April 20 by recreating their favorite piece of art in a photo.
“We asked ourselves what our followers and our community needed from us in this moment and decided that the combination of something fun and creative was the perfect panacea,” said Kerry Murphy, Artisphere’s executive director.
Participants should post the photos of their creations along with the original on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtags #remotelycreative and #artisphere, and tag Artisphere and a friend to take the challenge.
According to Murphy, the challenge will be judged by a panel on vision, creativity, originality, strength of composition, skillful use of materials, presentation and character. Finalists will be featured in Artisphere’s Remotely Creative Exhibit at the festival August 21-23. Winners will be selected during the weekend, and a $150 Artisphere gift certificate will be given for best in show. Second place will receive a $100 Artisphere gift certificate, and third place will be awarded a $50 gift certificate.
