Azalea Festival Committee unveils 2013 artwork

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The 2013 North Carolina Azalea Festival is still months away, but organizers Monday night revealed the artwork that will be featured throughout the upcoming event.

Elizabeth Singletary is the artist behind the masterpiece. It's not a painting---rather a creative collage of old magazines. She says she cut out small pieces of paper and arranged them to make them look like azaleas.

Singletary says she was excited to be commissioned by the Azalea Festival committee.

"It's just such a positive group of people to work with," Singletary said. "I think the festival is just such a positive thing for our community that to be involved in such a thing is such an honor."

The 66th North Carolina Azalea Festival will be held April 10-14, 2013.
