The Red Flannel Festival is holding its own version of ArtPrize here in Cedar Springs. The Red Flannel Art Review opened earlier this week, with 19 Cedar Springs businesses featuring 19 artists.

Residents will determine the winner by their vote. Voting will end on Wednesday, September 18, at 5 p.m. and winners will be announced September 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Barn, at the corner of Main and Cherry Streets.

According to Jen Leonard, Chair of the RF Art Review, there are local artists from all over the area, including Cedar Springs, Sand Lake, Howard City, Greenville, Lakeview, and Grand Rapids. “Several of our artists are also involved in Art Prize,” she said.

Artists include Andrea Martin, Dean Stephens, Debby Walker, Doug Gordon, Frank Haik, Helen Johnson, Hector Padilla, Chris Powell, Julie Ketchman, K Purol, Kathy Gebhardt, Lisa Spielmaker, Lacy  Proctor, Michelle Embs, Michelle Donk, Roy Bills, Sarah Schmiedicke, Sandy Filer, and Sarah Jean Anderson.

Many of them will be at the Craft Beer and Wine Tasting tonight (Friday, Sept. 5), which is also the artists’ reception. Cost is $25.

Leonard said that anyone may vote (including children), and each person is allowed to vote for as many art pieces as they like, but may only vote for a piece once.

Cash prizes for the artists vary from $50 to $200. “We have 1st and 2nd prize in 2D juried vote, 1st and 2nd prizes in 3D juried vote, popular vote, and a new one this year is our Red Flannel Theme prize,” explained Leonard.

Look for the art review symbol (a paint palette and paintbrush) or sign displayed in a window to see who might be featuring a piece of art, or pick up a Red Flannel brochure for a complete listing of the businesses and artists. Brochures are located at various businesses around town and on the website at redflannelfestival.org.
