Feghoot (also known as a story pun or poetic story joke) is a humorous short story or vignette ending in a pun (typically a play on a well-known phrase) where the story contains sufficient context to recognize the punning humor. It can be considered a type of shaggy dog story. Wikipedia.

Flash fiction is a fictional work of extreme brevity that still offers character & plot development. … Some commentators have suggested that flash fiction possesses a unique literary quality, in its ability to hint at or imply a larger story.Wikipedia

drabble is a short work of fiction of one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author’s ability to express interesting & meaningful ideas in a confined space. Wikipedia

  • The Board reserves the right to decline items not deemed appropriate – being respectful to host sites.
  • Works must be prepared for hanging as explained in CAGAC Hanging Instructions.
  • Works will be included based on number of participants & space available.

Details to follow. Start creating!


      • Not really different, last year, if a client wanted to purchase and were from out of town, the Art piece was taken down – no issues. This year like last, this is of course possible, and like last year, we ask, if possible for the more local clients, to keep the piece on display until the end of the show (which only lasts a week).


  1. With regards to “Details: 4 works/artist. Original work only: no copies
    I am a photographer and a painter… are you accepting photographs? What details do I need about with regards to photographs? Thanking you in advancd for your assistance.


    • I’m a photographer too so yes of course “prints” are our medium and I will fight for us!! ;-). The idea here was (if I understand correctly) to avoid the prints (copies) of paintings to be displayed for sale. Having said this, I agree that this will eventually turn into a much bigger grey area !
