All artists, whether amateur or advanced in experience, may enter the competition but participants are advised that artwork will be divided according to the mediums of painting, mixed media drawing, dimensional works, photography and computer generated art at both the amateur and advanced levels and final media grouping will be subject to the discretion of the judges.

The Judges’ Critique will start at 12:30 p.m. Oct. 19. This year both judges will give their critique at the same time, giving suggestions and helpful advice to those interested. All artists and photographers entered are welcome to attend.

Monetary prizes will be given for the amateur and advanced winners in Best of Show selections in both Photography and Fine Art categories with ribbons being awarded to other competitors for excellent work.

Door prizes, donated by area community businesses, will be given away throughout the show. New this year will be a silent auction on baskets of goodies.

PAL members will choose one of their own to receive the PAL Peer Award.

Another highlight of the event is the progressive painting, “Heaven’s Splendor,” painted by several PAL members. The painting will be awarded to a person in attendance during the awards presentation starting at 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

  • With $41.4M, 'Captain America' holds off 'Rio 2'

    "Captain America" continued to flex its Marvel muscle at the global box office, as "The Winter Soldier" took in $41.4 million domestically and $60.6 million overseas.

    The strong second-week performance for the Walt Disney release in North America was enough to narrowly edge 20th Century Fox's "Rio 2" in a springtime battle of sequels. The animated Amazon jungle tale "Rio 2" debuted with $39 million, according to studio estimates Sunday, almost exactly the opening weekend total of the 2011 Oscar-nominated original.

  • O'Brien: Colbert 'right person' to do 'Late Show'

    Don't feel bad for Conan O'Brien. Again.

    The 50-year-old talk show host said he was never a contender to take over CBS' the "Late Show" when David Letterman announced his retirement last week. The funnyman, who has hosted his talk show "Conan" on TBS since 2010, said he believes Stephen Colbert is the "right person" to take over the show from Letterman.

    Letterman changed the late-night TV game between his run on NBC's "Late Night" and starting the "Late Show" franchise in 1993. And while it's tough to replace a pop-culture icon, Colbert, in terms of pedigree and sense of humor, makes the most sense.

  • Kiss not the first to tell Rock Hall to kiss off

    Graciousness is not always high on the list of attributes you find in successful rock 'n' roll stars.

    Because of this, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions have sometimes brought out the worst in its inductees, whether continuing once-private feuds in public or launching criticism at the hall itself. This year it's Kiss that's angry, its members upset over the organization's decision only to induct original members Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley while excluding members who joined later.
