SHARON — The Sharon Historical Society & Museum announces an open call seeking entries for its upcoming show in Gallery SHS, “Wind & Water,” a juried exhibition and sale running from July 20 through August 30.
Gallery SHS invites artists to submit for consideration original works in any medium (e.g. oil, acrylic, watercolor, photography, pastel, ink, graphite, drawing, print, mixed media, sculpture, assemblage, fabric, stone, clay, metal). The elements of Wind & Water may be portrayed individually or together, either as pure energy and movement, or figurative images, atmospheric or abstract. The Gallery Committee says “bring us your best work!”
There is a non-refundable entry fee of $25 for up to two works of art, and $10 for each additional submission. The show’s judge, Kate Ganz, will select the art to be exhibited and award cash prizes of $100, $75, and $50 to three pieces. Ganz, a Sharon resident, has worked as a dealer in old master and modern drawings, and is co-author of the recent catalog raisonne of Jasper John’s drawings.
In addition to the prizes, guests who attend the show’s opening night will have the opportunity to select their favorite work of art which will receive the “SHS Crowd Pleaser” award. Submissions must be delivered on Saturday, July 13 between 9 and 11 a.m. The prospectus, entry forms and detailed terms and conditions are available on the Art Gallery page (follow the link under Museum > Exhibiting at the SHS) of the Sharon Historical Society & Museum’s web site, www.sharonhist.org, or can be picked up at the SHS, 18 Main Street, Sharon, during regular hours.
