GARRETT — The Garrett Museum of Art will open its sixth annual artists’ exhibit Friday, March 15.
The exhibit, which runs through April 28, will showcase as many area artists as possible. Artists from DeKalb, Noble, Steuben and Allen counties, as well as artists associated with the museum, are encourage to enter their works.
Accepted media includes oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, sculpture, ceramics, fiber art, printmaking, photography, drawing, stained glass and mixed media (with full description of materials used). All two-dimensional artwork should be framed and presented ready to safely hang or it will be disqualified.
This will be a juried show with only a notification of rejection sent out by March 8. There is a $20 entry fee, payable to GMOA, that entitles the exhibitor up to three entries. The fee will be waived for GMOA artist members at the $25 and above membership level.
The gratuity for a sale is 20 percent. Members at this level will also receive five People’s Choice votes to be cast for this year’s show.
Artwork may be marked for sale during the show. Any work sold during the show will be subject to a 20 percent gratuity, 25-percent gratuity for non-members payable to GMOA by April 22 or work will not be released. All purchase arrangements will be made through a GMOA representative and the artist will be paid by check less the gratuity.
All work must be dropped off at the museum, located at 100 S. Randolph St., in person on Saturday, March 2 or Sunday, March 3 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
A series will count as one entry but needs to be clearly marked as such. Space may dictate the number of pieces accepted by each artist but there is no entry size limitation.
Entry forms are available at the Garrett Museum or Art may be downloaded from the GMOA Web site, garrettmuseumofart.com. Forms will also be available at the main Garrett State Bank location or at the Garrett Public Library.
