The deadline is fast approaching for artists to submit their work for an art contest planned for this year's Fourth of July Festival in Pauls Valley.

The hope is to showcase the art on T-shirts, posters and promotion for the festival that combines the Love PV drive raising money for school supplies and the Independence Day festivities in Wacker Park this July.

Artists of all ages are invited to submit one entry as the artwork will be judged on the use of color and form, how well the artwork celebrates Pauls Valley and patriotism, creativity, neatness and logo suitability and overall composition.

All submissions must be sent to by May 15. Call 405-207-4879 for more information.

There should be a lot of anticipation for this upcoming noodling event since last year’s Okie fish gathering, normally bringing in thousands of people to the local Wacker Park, was called off because of the virus pandemic.
