I t’s a Cambria tradition: a non-traditional art show that welcomes alternative media, encourages artists to venture outside their (and viewer’s) comfort zone and unleashes the creative hounds — and all for a good cause.
It always includes new ideas, but the 24th annual Prefix 927 Show will also include a new feature: an afternoon reception and party.
As usual, the show will run on a Saturday and Sunday, July 21 and 22. This year’s regular hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Veterans Memorial Building, 1000 Main St. Admission during those hours is $3.
From 2 to 5 p.m. that Saturday, $10 admission includes food, beverage, a silent art auction, raffle, live music and “lots of fun!,” according to organizers.
Proceeds support the YMCA Cambria Teen Center.
The entry fee is $10. Cash awards of $100, $75 and $50 will be given, plus merchant awards. Entries are due by 2 p.m. Friday, July 20. For details, go to the Allied Arts Association website, artistsofcambria.com, and click on “2012 Special Events.” —Bert Etling
