The Historic State Theater will hold an art show and auction Aug. 17 but submissions to the show are due July 14.

Select pieces will be auctioned off in the theater. For those pieces, 50 percent of sales go to the artist and 50 percent to the theater.

Artists can set up a booth with their art for a $55 fee or submit pieces solely for the auction.

The show features artists from the area in many mediums including sculpture, woodworking, painting, jewelry and photography.

Theater director Emily West said she hopes the art show and auction will become an annual event.

Interested artists should call West at (270) 234-8258 for submission guidelines and information.
