Denim, Boots & Brushes Event Postponed!

With the challenges North Carolinians are facing due to Hurricane Florence, we have decided to postpone our planned event – Denim, Boots & Brushes, which was scheduled to take place at The Fair Barn on October 12.  Our “My America” contest will conclude with online voting on October 8th and prizes will be awarded based on this voting and the evaluation of an independent judge who will view all entries in person.  Winners will be announced online on October 15th.

We are in the planning stages for an open house to be held in early December where all contest entries will be displayed and available for sale.  We’ll update you via email but please watch our website and Facebook page for details.

In the aftermath of the hurricane, your continued support of our work to help local veterans and their families is more important than ever.  We’re working hard to assist a number of local veterans through this difficult time. We sincerely appreciate your support and hope you’ll continue to vote for your favorite “My America.”


Artists 18 years and older, currently residing in North Carolina, or a member of a North Carolina artist league, council or similar member-based organization if not a NC resident.
