‘Four Seasons’ call for art

Sep 09, 2018

Tenants Harbor — Jackson Memorial Library, 71 Main St./Route 131, seeks to provide an opportunity for artists of the Town of St. George and surrounding communities to exhibit fine art for aesthetic enjoyment and catalyst for meaningful dialogue. Artists are invited to submit works for the “Four Seasons” open art exhibition scheduled to open Oct. 3.

All artists 18 and older who reside in Maine, either full- or part-time, are eligible. Preference is given work that qualifies as “fine art,” is two-dimensional, fits the library space and weighs less than 20 pounds per piece. The artwork must be suitable for display to a diverse audience, including children; enhance its setting; and help create a sense of place.  The artwork should not pose a threat to public safety.

Artists may submit up to three works whose subjects refer to the seasons of the year and that conform to the eligibility requirements. Due to space limitations, it may become necessary to hold in safe storage some works until wall space is made available due to sales.

Pre-registration is open until Thursday, Sept. 27, by contacting Betsy Welch, exhibition coordinator, at bwdesign.welch@gmail.com or call 975-5072. Due to space restrictions, only the first 25 pre-registered artists will be eligible to exhibit their works.

Art from each pre-registered artist must be delivered to the library Saturday, Sept. 29, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.; or Monday, Oct. 1, from 3 to 6 p.m. Completed registration forms and a “hanging-fee” of $10 per artist will be collected at time of delivery. Jackson Memorial Library will charge a 30 percent commission for all works sold during the exhibition; and is not responsible for loss or damage of any exhibited work of art.
