June 30, 2017
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

The Alliance for the Arts is seeking artists to submit their work to "Fired Up: A Juried Exhibit." The exhibit will feature works inspired by fire or in some way use flames and heat in their creation, including ceramics, glass and welded pieces.

An entry may consist of 1 to 3 artworks. All entries must be submitted online no later than Saturday, Aug. 12. Artists can download the prospectus and submit work at / FiredUp.

This year's juror is Lee Brotherton. His fine arts career includes serving as an elementary art teacher, art museum work, art gallery manager and sales consultant. During this time, she constantly dreamt of being a full-time artist. In her free time she continued to work in the arts, especially with clay.

Brotherton has over 20 years of creating, marketing and selling pottery recreations and original sculpture and paintings. Her sculptures are in private, corporate and museum collections throughout the world.

The opening celebration will be held on Friday, Sept. 8, from 5-7 p.m. Brotherton will be on hand to present awards including $300 for Best In Show, $125 for second place and $75 for third place.

Meet exhibiting artists and juror Lee Brotherton during a conversational walk and talk as they discuss their works on Sept. 9 at 6 p.m. during SoCo Second Saturday Art Crawl. This exhibit runs until Sept. 30
