The Berkeley Arts Council is holding a “Mask-a-Palooza” decorated Coronavirus face mask contest and exhibit, September 12 through November 13, at the Berkeley Art Works gallery, 116 North Queen Street, Martinsburg.

Cash prizes will be awarded for the top 3 designs!
The contest is open to the community and there is no entry fee. The masks will be on display in the front window of the Berkeley Art Works gallery.
