Art sought for 'Fire and Ice' exhibit

AUBURN -- An arts conglomerate in Auburn is hoping that opposites really do attract.

The Georgia Piedmont Arts Center is inviting artists of all skill levels to participate in the upcoming gallery exhibition "Fire and Ice."

The show will run for two days -- Jan. 21 and 22 -- at the art cottage located at 1396 3rd Ave. in Auburn.

While submissions will not be juried, they will be judged and awards given in both 2-D and 3-D categories, said GPAC president Kathleen Gill.

Entry fees of $15 (non-GPAC members) and $10 (members) apply. Each artist may submit two pieces.

"Fire and Ice" is the first of three upcoming winter gallery shows at GPAC. Feb. 18 and 19 will feature "The Seasons" gallery show and March 17 and 18 brings the "Creative Creatures" exhibition, Gill said.

The not-for-profit center recently relocated from Winder to a historic house in downtown Auburn. Its mission is to "cultivate, facilitate and promote a community in which all art forms can thrive cooperatively," according to the center's website.

Officials declared their inaugural gallery show at the art cottage -- the winter-themed "Shades of White" -- a success earlier this year.
