It’s round-up time for artistic talent in Lehi. The Lehi Arts Council is calling for submissions for its annual Round-Up Art Show, to be held June 20–25 during Round-Up Week.
A growing attraction at the Lehi City Round-Up, the juried show offers cash prizes. Dan Wilson has won first prize for the past two years. “I enter a lot of shows,” he said. “I think Lehi does a really good job. They put on a super good show.”
Jean Hatch, Chair of the Lehi Arts Council, said the show has been part of Round-Up festivities for several years, and it has been attracting more entries each year. All varieties of visual art are welcome. Submissions have included oils, watercolors, photographs, and a variety of sculpture, among others. Lance D. Madigan, publicist for the event, said they’ve even had cross stitch.
The show is open to all Lehi residents 8 years and older. Works of art must be within the size limit of 48” by 48” and weigh no more than 40 pounds. Multiple entries from a single artist are welcome.
