Fine Arts looking for artists for Kentucky Derby race event

Members of the Milford Fine Arts Council are looking for artists to create works for an upcoming event.

Live-time telecast of the 6 p.m. Kentucky Derby horse race will be the focus of the event at the Milford Fine Arts annual May 4 gala. The center will surround guests with fine food and drink, hats, and original works by local artists depicting horses and derby-related scenes.

Artists are invited to submit paintings and other art forms for consideration. Artworks may be sold if desired.

Exhibited items will contribute to the atmosphere at the 4-7 p.m. gala, and raise enthusiasm for bids in the silent auction and Derby Day raffle. Artists can call Kristine Kinsella at 203-878-6647 or see for criteria, submission date, and conditions of sale. The MFAC will manage all sales.
