Every year in January, the Florida State Button Society hosts its statewide, five-day Button Meeting and Show in Daytona Beach. This year the Manatee Button Club of Ocala, with help from Hernando County Button Collectors Group members, is planning the event.

Promotion of a new show event, “Joy of Buttons” Button Art Contest, has just begun. The contest was created to encourage button club members and other artists to express their love of buttons by using buttons in their art. Button art is being created by artists of all levels nationally and internationally. For examples of button art, visit: https://www.pinterest.com/holeybuttons/button-art/.

For information on how to enter the contest, visit: http://www.holeybuttons.com.

Artwork will be displayed from Friday, January 13 through the end of the day on Saturday, January 14, during the 2017 Florida State Button Society Meeting and Show at The Shores Resort & Spa, 2637 S. Atlantic Ave., Daytona Beach Shores, FL 32118.
