The Randolph Arts Guild is currently accepting submissions for an upcoming poultry-themed program titled “The Chicken Art Show”.
According to RAG’s Executive Director, Derrick Sides “We are humbled and honored to be able to host an exhibition of this artistic caliber and merit - I just hope we don’t “foul” it up.” Derrick continued through unbridled fits of laughter and puns… “Seriously we’re “egg-cited” about this show and the “meat” of the matter is that though it may look like we’re “winging” it, we really think that a show like this gives us a “leg”-up on what other arts councils are currently doing.” Finally with a smile that can only express just how long he was waiting to his final pun Derrick added, “I think once it is on display people are really going to “flock” to see it.”
The exhibition is open to any chicken themed work of art in any media. The Randolph Arts Guild has tapped Honorable Chick-fil-A Gallus Domesticus expert, Sam Ramsey, who has dedicated his life to breasts, legs and thighs (he’s not a wing man) to curate the exhibition. There will be prizes of Cash Prize: 1st $100; 2nd $50; 3rd $25. In addition, a special guest judge will select the “Chicken Choice Award” which eventhough it carries with it no direct monetary value, will certainly bestow incomparable bragging rights.
