Published 11:38 pm Saturday, May 26, 2012

The Selma Art Guild will accept entries on June 1 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. for their annual Summer Juried Art Show. The show will boast entries of different mediums ranging from transparent and opaque to photography and 3-D.

“We would just encourage anybody who paints to come out,” Guild secretary Cam Guarino said. “There are different judges every year and different judges like different things so you never know unless you try.”

Guarino also encourages residents to come out for the reception on June 10 for free admission, even if they did not submit art.
