Claiborne Smith People’s Choice Award Fund Established at Jekyll Island
To honor his memory, the Claiborne Smith People’s Choice Award has been established for the annual juried exhibit at the Jekyll Island Art Association. This exhibit showcases all art forms and is held in March. All entries are eligible regardless of medium. The intention is for the award to be in the amount of at least $100 and voted on during the opening reception. The goal is that enough money is raised to sustain the award over a number of years.
If you would like to make a contribution to the fund, please:
Make the check out to The Jekyll Island Art Association and on the memo line put: Claiborne Smith People’s Choice Award Fund
Jekyll Island, GA 31527

What's On Our Loommembers share what they are weaving
a message from our president
Even more exciting will be our Member’s Show. This exhibit is the opportunity to share our work with each other and support each other’s talent, creativity, and progress as fiber artist. CHG members who have not exhibited in a juried show or ever won an award at a CHG members show is eligible for the Margaret Mott award for a handwoven piece. I am excited to announce that this year we have an additional award for the best in show that is made with cotton sponsored by the Georgia Cotton Commission.
This is also an opportune time to show the community there is a place and a group of people that will introduce them to weaving, spinning, dyeing, and much more.
Hope to see you all at an upcoming meeting!
