The Kent Arts Commission is seeking entries for an online exhibit via Kent Creates, a web platform for sharing art, culture and creative endeavors.

The most recent exhibit for Kent Creates is open through Dec. 31 and focuses on the theme of “Holiday Traditions.” The call for entries reads:

For this Kent Creates exhibit, the Kent Arts Commission encourages artists and creative minds to look to holiday traditions for inspiration. There are many autumn and winter holidays celebrating harvest, gratitude, family, light, spiritual traditions, and more – Dia de los Muertos, Diwali, Oktoberfest, Moon Festival, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Veteran’s Day, Christmas, Hanukkah, Boxing Day, Ramadan and Winter Solstice to name just a few.

The “Holiday Traditions” exhibit is open to any creative endeavor – photographs, paintings, poems, recipes, short films, songs, or stories – anything creative minds can dream up. Work may be submitted through Dec. 31, at which time the exhibit will close. The Kent Arts Commission will select the top five pieces, which will receive $200 honorariums and featured status on the site.

Kent Creates encourages Kent residents to be creative; it is a web platform for artists, musicians, writers, crafters, illustrators, dancers, filmmakers, hobbyists and other creatives to share their work and meet people with similar interests.

Creative work of all kinds may be shared on KentCreates.com. Kent Creates is free to use and anyone can sign up; there is no requirement to live in Kent.
