ALBANY, GA (WALB) - When you think of the Flint Riverquarium, you usually think of turtles and catfish, but for the next few days you can see some fine art there as well.

The Albany Area Arts Council and the Riverquarium are putting on an exhibit and competition. Artists from around the Southeast are showing off their paintings, photographs and sculptures.

Prizes are being awarded for first, second and third place finishers in each category. Organizers say that the exposure that comes with having the show at one of the city's most popular tourist attractions will hopefully make more people think about art and it's place in their lives.

"I think that they will find something that they will like. I mean it's not necessarily all formal art. There's a lot of fun, creative pieces that are in the show," said Deborah Loehr, of the Albany Area Arts Council.

The show runs from June 11th through June 21st, and all of the works in the competition can be seen at the Riverquarium from 10 to 5 Monday through Saturday and from 1 to 5 on Sunday.
