Attention, 3-D Artists!

The Hangout in Gulf Shores—yes, you know the place, located at the main beach—needs your help. Well, maybe more appropriately, they would like your participation or your assistance to spread the word.

Pictured is the 2012 winning sculpture “When I Visit Your Home.” Maybe your entry will be the 2013 winner!

Partnered with Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach, The Hangout is asking artists to consider submitting an entry for the 2nd Annual Hangout Public Art Competition. Your work should be a large-scale, weather-friendly, 3-D sculpture relating to this area. If your work is chosen, you will receive a $3,000 stipend and the displayed art will become property of The Hangout.

While last year’s contest was open to college/university students, this year it is open to all artists.

If you are interested in taking part in this competition, email your contact information to Juli Jordan at Be sure to include “Hangout Public Art Competition” in the subject line. Deadline for this initial contact is October 14, 2012.

November 18 is the deadline for a written concept design plus photos of detailed sketches or models. Your presentation of the model—including why you chose the design and the requirements of installation—is due December 16. Announcement of the winning design will be January 15, 2013.

For further information, contact Juli Jordan at the email address above or 251-981-4111.

Be sure to stop by The Hangout to see the winning sculpture from 2012 or 2013. If you need a place to hang your hat while doing so, consider staying a few days or a few weeks at a condo in Gulf Shores.

Emerging Artists at Orange Beach Art Center

A handful of artistically talented young adults are getting a little added exposure thanks to the Orange Beach Art Center and Friends of the Arts, Inc.

Support young talent by visiting the Emerging Artists Exhibit at Orange Beach Arts Center through June 5, 2010.

Through June 5, 2010, you are invited to experience the world through the eyes of graduating art students during the center’s Emerging Artists Exhibit. This particular group of exhibitors was chosen by their college instructors and deans, as a vote of confidence in the current and potential abilities of each student.

Now in its second year, the Visiting Artists and Special Exhibits Series was begun to highlight and encourage some of the Southeast’s visual artists.

Consider new perspectives as you view ceramic sculpture, painting, videography, photography and mixed media sculpture. The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m.–5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

After admiring the Emerging Artists Exhibit, wander through the center to enjoy the many other artworks on display. And don’t forget to stop by the Hot Shop, Alabama’s only public-access glass studio. You’ll find the Orange Beach Art Center located at 26389 Canal Road, 0.3 miles east of the Hwy. 161 and Canal Rd. (Hwy. 180) intersection, on the left.
