It's in its 34th year and may be the biggest James Weir People's Choice competition yet.

Art Curator for the City of Weyburn Regan Lanning says the show runs the artistic media gamut.

"Ranging from fibre artists to digital painting to traditional painting to mixed media pieces...pretty much everything is represented there," explains Lanning.

Not only does the show offer many mediums, it also showcases several new artists.

"We have 37 pieces in the show, representing 38 artists - all of them are local. So, every single person in this show comes from Weyburn and area," explains Lanning. "Of the 38 artists represented, 14 of them, this is their first time in the show."

Lanning is one of the 38 artists represented, however, she is not officially in the show. She has some of her pottery pieces on display.

Lanning says she is hopeful the votes will break 1,000 this year, especially with 616 elementary students set to see the show in the upcoming weeks.

Voting is open until February 16 at 5 p.m. The show is located in the Allie Griffin Art Gallery in the lower level of the Weyburn Public Library.

There will be a public wine and cheese reception to announce the three winners on February 22 at 7 p.m. They will receive trophies and a show at the Weyburn Credit Union gallery in the summer.

 

Murray Williams took time to vote at the art show on Saturday.
