On Wednesday, 38 artists submitted 176 pieces of art for competition in the 2015 Carolina Artists’ EXPO, now displayed at the Civic Center on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Salisbury.

Works submitted will be judged in five categories, with ribbons and monetary prizes in each category. Oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, along with drawings, pastels, collages, mixed media and photographs are in the show. Many of the art works are for sale.

Winners will be announced at a reception to be held from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. today. The public is invited to the reception at the Civic Center. Free to the public, the show may be viewed Thursday from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., when the show will be taken down.

The Carolina Artists Guild is composed of artists who have a wide variety of artistic interests. All who enjoy learning and sharing their art and talents are welcome to attend. For more information, visit the guild’s website at www.thecarolinaartists.org.
