Do you love taking photos? Do you have a wonderful recipe? Are you good at sewing? Do you have a love for drawing? Are you talented with woodworking? With less than three months left before the Clark County Fair, it’s time to think about the jury that will be participating in the exhibits at the fair.

“The theme of the exhibition hall this year is Village Life,” said Robin Maughan, Director of the Exhibition Jury. “I am amazed at what each of our nine department chairs comes up with when decorating their parts of the building. Come check it out.”

There are several exhibition jury can enter. They include photography, creative arts, fine arts, home art, home science, industrial art, science, and horticulture.

“I saw unusual items like Lego displays, recyclable art like plastic bag crochet rugs, and collections like stamps, typewriters and cameras,” Moan said. “We love to exhibit collections of people! But please let us know in advance so that we can prepare enough space for them. It’s amazing to see people’s talents and their different interests.”

Moen encourages everyone to get involved. She said that there is a place for everyone to work. “I used to think I wasn’t good enough to send stuff,” Mogan said. “But I found out that we are all in this together and it’s really fun to exhibit something at the fair. It gives a sense of belonging and participation. It’s interesting to hand something in and come back and see it on display. So I hope no one feels intimidated.”

New exhibits this year, entries will be available online at ccfair.com.

Applications are accepted at the Fine Arts Fair building on Saturday, April 8, from 10:00 to 18:00 or Monday, April 10, from 10:00 to 18:00. For those in Las Vegas, there will be a drop-off point at the Alexander Library, 1755 W Alexander Rd, North Las Vegas on April 7 from 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm.

“If filling out an online application is too intimidating, you can wait to do so when applying,” Mogan said.

Judging will take place on Tuesday, April 11. All evaluated works are anonymous. The manufacturer’s name is added to the product only after evaluation.

There are several age categories: a child under 7 years old, youth 8-12 years old, a teenager 13-18 years old and an adult 18 years old and older. Skill levels: “Professional”, “Amateur” and “Disabled”. “Some of the best culinary creations come from our youth!” Mogan exclaimed.

The Country Bake Shop, which sells a variety of treats such as caramel popcorn, brownies, caramel apples, homemade bread and cookies, will be back. Operates as a thrift store. If you are interested in participating, please contact Rhonda Pulsifer.

The Country store, which sells items such as homewares, jewelry, handicrafts, and Clark County Fair T-shirts, is also a consignment. Contact Heather Chappell if you would like to enter items for profit.

Both stores have a small entry fee and contributors pay a percentage, but you don’t have to work at the store. All you have to do is leave your bags and spend the rest of your time enjoying the fair!

Finally, help is always welcome. “We need volunteers to work in the showroom,” Moen said. “Especially on the days of installation and delivery.”

For more information about juried exhibits, shops, or simply to volunteer, contact Robin Maughan at 702-278-0704.
