DAMARISCOTTA — River Arts, 36 Elm St. Plaza, invites artists to submit work for the next juried show, “Black & White.” This show is open to members and non-members. All mediums are welcome. The deadline for entries to the “Black & White” show is Saturday, Jan. 15, at 4 p.m. River Arts is pleased to announce the juror will be architect and painter Jack Silverio.

Silverio studied architecture at Rhode Island School of Design and had his own architectural practice for 37 years. In recent years he has devoted himself full time to painting and sculpture. His current work is based on geometric studies, often employing progressions of forms using the Fibonacci Series or the Golden Ratio. He searches for qualities that are quiet and harmonious and which may best be described by the word “radiance.” Silverio has shown his work at the Caldbeck Gallery in Rockland, the Frank Brockman Gallery in Brunswick, Studio 53 in Boothbay Harbor, Unity College, and the University of Maine Hutchinson Center. Most recently he was a guest sculptor at MECA. Silverio has written three books on architecture.

The entry fee to the “Black & White” show is $15 for members and $30 for non-members. All entries must be gallery ready and clean. Artists may enter two pieces up to 48 inches (in any direction), including frame.

All submitted works must be for sale and River Arts retains 35% commission on sold works. Entry forms are available in the gallery or online at riverartsme.org. Notification of juror’s selections will be made via email by Wednesday, Jan. 19. Unaccepted work should be picked up promptly during gallery hours.

The “Black & White” show will run from Jan. 18 through Feb. 19. A reception will be held Saturday, Jan. 22, from 2 to 4 p.m. Open hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; River Arts will be closed from Jan. 2 through 7.
