The Carroll County Arts Council invites artists young and old to explore their creative side with PEEPS!
The 13th Annual PEEPshow takes place from April 3 to 13 and the Carroll County Arts Council is looking for submissions. They welcome dioramas, sculpture, mosaics, photography, paintings, videos, and computer generated art as long as PEEPS are featured as their primary subject matter or artistic medium. Entries do not have to be comprised solely of PEEPS® or edible materials, just as long as it is clearly PEEPS themed.
Registration is open until Friday, March 13. There is a $10 registration fee, with all proceeds benefiting the Carroll County Arts Council. Late entries will not be accepted.
Need help with the ins and outs of designing with PEEPS? There is even a Get Ready for PEEPshow! Marshmallows as Media Workshop on Saturday, February 22. Artists ages 8 to 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The workshop is taught by Vivian Davis, “the Mother of (PEEPs) Dragons” sculptor, the 2017 PEEPshow grand prize winner. Registration is $45 and includes all supplies.
All decorators are invited to the awards ceremony on Monday, April 13 at 6:30 pm where all winners will be announced and prizes awarded. There are multiple categories, but one gives you the chance to try and help out your favorite charity.
“Inside We Are All the Same” asks artists to use their creativity to come up with an entry that brings this theme to life in a unique way. The staff of Just Born Inc., the makers of PEEPS, will choose the entry that best exemplifies the theme. The winning decorators will receive Two (2) “Inside We’re All the Same” shirts and a $250 prize to be donated to the charity of their choice! (with approval by PEEPS Marketing Team). The Just Born Inc. PEEPS Marketing Team will judge based on the following: Interpretation and clarity of the theme to the viewer, Creativity and originality of the depicted theme, and Quality of the art.
Registration information and entry guidelines can be found here. So stock up on PEEPS, dig out those hot glue guns, cardboard boxes, chicken wire, and whatever else you may need to create your masterpiece and try not to eat all the PEEPS before finishing your design!
