(Yadkinville, NC) – The Yadkin Arts Council invites all who are interested to attend the celebration of the 10th Annual Juried Arts Show in-person on July 1, 2021 at 5pm. This exhibition, which serves as a celebration of some of the finest creativity in our region, brings a beautifully diverse exhibit to the Welborn Gallery each year to be seen by hundreds of art patrons, theatregoers, and Center Bistro patrons. The exhibition will be on display July 1 – August 27, 2021. For all who can attend, the reception will feature wine and beer, light hors d’oeuvres, an award ceremony, and a meet and greet with the artists.  

Affee Vickers, local Winston-Salem artist, was the juror for this exhibition. Affee’s ingenuity in the areas of glass, acrylic, stainless steel, titanium, abstract art, oil paintings, and sculptures - along with his discerning eye and deep appreciation for artistic value - made him an excellent choice for this year's competition.
