Please check here for Guild Hours
It’s time to tune up the energy in your art studio! The Gallery Committee, chaired by Jo Guscott, is planning to hold a Juried Member’s Show in February 2022. This show will be hung throughout the entire downstairs area of the Guild and we will need a commitment to participate from 50 members for this show to go forward. If we do not meet this goal the show will not go forward. Each member is allowed up to two entries, $30.00 for one, $45.00 for two. The judge will be Steve Zazenski.
We will accept paintings, drawings, prints, mixed media and sculpture. No photography. All work must be original. Two-dimensional work must be framed, matted, and wired for hanging. Only gallery canvases (1 ½ inches deep) will be accepted unframed. The edge must be painted. No other unframed 2-d will be accepted. REQUIREMENTS here. Here is a helpful Hanging Guide
This is a wonderful opportunity to display your highest level of talent with fellow members in a display for the public.
Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
A sign-up sheet will be available in the Studio Gallery. A prospectus is available here. We hope you plan to participate.
