Area artists of all ages are invited to begin preparing their works of art for this summer's JeFFFest.

JeFFFest, a celebration of food, music and art, will be held on June 23 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in downtown Huntington.

The art pieces must be created on a 5-inch by 7-inch canvas purchased at Four Corners Custom Framing, 419 N. Jefferson St., Huntington. The canvases will be available beginning May 14. Artists may purchase more than one canvas, and any media can be used on the canvas.

Completed canvases must be returned to the shop by June 14, at which time they become the property of the LaFontaine Arts Council, which sponsors JeFFFest.

The works must be dry and ready for framing when they are returned.

The canvases will be professionally framed and placed in a silent auction, which begins June 20 and concludes the evening of JeFFFest. People's Choice awards will be given in adult and youth categories.

For more information, call the LaFontaine Arts Council Executive Director Debbie Dyer at 358-0055 or frame shop owner Paula Bittner at 355-0650.
