Naperville Art League submission

For the 10th consecutive year, the Naperville Art League is inviting individuals to enter an original work of art in its public art contest.

This year's theme, "Grounds for Potential," was inspired by the collaboration between the arts organization and fellow nonprofit Loaves and Fishes Community Pantry. By creating a partnership for the competition, both groups hope to reach a larger audience and raise awareness of their presence in the community.

Eligibility for participation in the competition is open to high school students, college students and adults.

Entrants can submit pieces interpreting the theme in virtually any media. Pieces may be representational or abstract and must be original in design, concept and execution.

Applications and details on media, size and other requirements are available from the Naperville Art League by calling (630) 355-2530 or visiting www.napervilleartleague.com.

The works will be exhibited March 7-15 at the Naperville Art League's Fine Art Center and Gallery, 508 N. Center St., with a special reception and awards ceremony from 2 to 4 p.m. March 9.

"This is one of our most popular shows," said Debbie Venezia, executive director of the league. "It is always amazing to see how the participants will execute their interpretation of the theme."
