River Arts, Route 1 just north of E.C. Hunt Lumber, invites artists to submit work for its upcoming “Black, White & Tones of Grey” juried exhibition. Submissions in any media are welcomed including painting, sculpture, photography, graphic arts, drawing and fine crafts.

Submitted works of art should not include any notes of saturated or brilliant color. Finding inspiration in subtle temperature shifts of black, white and/or tones of gray is encouraged. Work can be submitted during gallery hours anytime up to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 9. Opening reception is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 15, from 5 to 7 p.m., and the exhibition will hang until Feb. 11.

Juror for the exhibition is artist and educator Tina Ingraham, whose most recent award is a 2016 Project Grant from the Maine Commission for the Arts for her continued work on the evolution of Popham Beach in Phippsburg. Ingraham received her master of fine arts degree from Brooklyn College of CUNY in 1996; her BA in Design was earned at the University of Cincinnati, College of DAAP. She has a broad history in a variety of teaching experiences, done independently and within educational institutions including Bowdoin College, Stephens College, Maine College of Art and Brooklyn College, where she was awarded The Charles G. Shaw Teaching Fellowship. She currently is writing a text on teaching painting developed from her approach to teaching color theory directly on the palette, inspired by study of master paintings relevant to her work.

Artists can enter up to three works; total fee is $20, $15 for members. All work must be for sale. Entry forms are available online at riverartsme.org or at the gallery. Wall-hung work size maximum is 60 inches in height, 42 inches in width. For safety reasons, Plexiglas or other non-glass option should be used for work over 34 inches, excluding pastels.

More than 1,000 different Maine artists have exhibited in these shows. For more information, call 563-1507; visit the website; or email info@riverartsme.org.
