2017 Alternatives Whitinsville Palette Contest

The 2017 Alternatives Whitinsville Palette Contest is here! It’s the 5th Annual Palette Contest. Here’s how this works.

You go to the Alternatives Whitinsville location during their normal working hours and buy the palette for $15. That is your entry fee. You can then decorate that palette in ANY way you wish. You can paint it. Cyanotype it. Cut it into pieces and reassemble them. Burn images into it. Build on top of it. The winners then get cash prizes and world-wide acclaim!

You can pick up your palette any time before February 24, 2017. The palette needs to be dropped off by March 2, 2017.

The show runs from March 10 through April 28, 2017. The opening reception is Friday, March 10th from 4:30 – 7:30pm.

There are cash prizes in three age categories:

18 and up: $300, $200, $100

12-17: $100, $75, $50

6-11: $75, $50, $25
