The 2017 Shad Festival will include an even bigger way to support our arts community and the Shad Festival Arts Scholarship Fund. Funds raised from the poster event go into a dedicated scholarship fund for students from The Delaware River Towns sending districts who are pursuing a collegiate career in the arts.
Posters are reviewed by judges and some are awarded monetary prizes which are underwritten by generous local businesses. A selection committee will place your poster in either the Live Auction of the Silent Auction. Both Live and Silent Auction posters are eligible for prizes.
Posters will be displayed in the recreation room of the First Presbyterians Church in Lambertville. The Artists Reception will be held on Friday, April 28th from 6pm to 9pm.
General exhibition hours are Saturday, April 29th from 12:30pm to 5:30pm and Sunday, April 30th from 12pm to 5pm. The Silent Auction will end at 2pm. The Live Auction will be held from 3pm to 5pm.
The Silent Auction begins at 7pm on Friday, April 28th and ends at 2pm on Sunday April 30th. The Live Auction begins at 3pm on Sunday, April 30th.
All posters must be returned by Monday, April 10, 2017 to be included in the store front and/or online previews, to the Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce at 77 Bridge Street in Lambertville, NJ. Final deadline is Monday, April 24, 2017.
Don’t miss the opportunity to bid on the beautiful artwork created by our community’s leading artists — and remember, proceeds support the scholarship program. Here is a sneak peek at this year’s posters:
