All paintings must be created within the City of Holladay boundaries between September 28th and October 4th. Before painting, all surfaces must be stamped at Relics (4685 S Holladay Blvd) during regular business hours beginning September 28th. Relics is open Monday–Friday, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm, and Saturday 10:00 am-- 5:00 pm.
Completed paintings must be submitted to Relics by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, October 4th. All entries must be framed and ready to hang. Please consult with Relics ahead of time if you do not have appropriate framing and need to purchase a frame for your art.
Holladay boundaries are roughly between 3900 S and I-215 (north to south), and I-215 to Highland Drive (east to west) with a triangular extension from 4700 S going west to Van Winkle Expressway. See the map for more details.
Quick Draw/Plaza Fest
There will be a Quick Draw event on Saturday, October 7th from 8:30 am – 1:00 pm at the Holladay Village Plaza. There is no additional charge to enter this event, and the first 15 artists who indicate they're interested on the registration form will be invited. Quick Draw paintings need to be delivered to Relics shortly after 1:00 pm so they will be ready for the silent auction. Your art needs to be framed and wired.
Reception and Exhibit
There will be an opening reception with light refreshments at Relics from 5:00 – 8:00 pm on Saturday, October 7th. Prizes will be awarded at 7:30 pm.
The exhibit will continue at Relics thru October 28th. All plein air paintings will be available for sale (unless specified as display only).
Quick Draw paintings will be available thru silent bid auction from 1:00 - 8:00 pm on October 7th. The minimum bid will be determined by the artist (at or below ½ the standard price of the painting). If your painting does not sell for the minimum bid, you have the option of putting a firm price on it and leaving it for sale through the duration of the exhibit.
Relics Gallery and Holladay Arts Council will retain a total of 30% of the sales price of all paintings.
Art Pickup All art needs to be picked up from Relics between Monday, October 30th and Wednesday, November 1st, regular business hours.
Judging You may indicate on your registration form that you wish to have your work for display only (not judged or for sale). If you submit work as an amateur, professional, or student, however, your work will be judged by a panel of artists on Friday, October 6th.
