Call for Entries - Juried Art Show
Entries are coming in for this exhibition from near and far, including new participants and old friends. The main requirement is that each artist is a member of the museum, a status that is easy to attain.
In the 2013 Members' Juried Art Exhibit, the museum's member artists are invited to submit up to three digital photos of their art. Open to artists everywhere, one work from each artist is guaranteed acceptance. This exhibit is the museum’s most inclusive juried art exhibit; every artist gets at least one work in the show. It’s during the museum’s peak tourist season, so gets maximum exposure.
An artist who is not yet a museum member may join with their entry into the exhibit. The deadline for submission of digital images via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or on CD, entry form and payment is April 18th. The exhibit opens with a reception on Saturday, May 18th, and will remain on view through September 7th. Works in the exhibit may be offered for sale, with one third of the price benefiting the museum. For more information and a prospectus, contact email@example.com, or download the prospectus or call 315-393-2425.
The juror chooses from digital representations of up to three artworks, and also awards prizes for “best in show”, 2nd and 3rd place. A “Public’s Choice” award will be chosen by visitor ballots cast throughout the exhibition. The prize, a framed print of Frederic Remington’s 1890 painting, Antoine’s Cabin, will go to the winner.
The juror is Boonville, New York abstract artist Gregg Fedchak, who has spent most of his life in the North Country. A graduate of St. Lawrence University in his hometown of Canton, his prize-winning work is of our increasingly fragmented world. Fedchak’s art has been selected for a dozen juried shows, including “Made In New York” at the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Gallery in Auburn, NY. He has had solo exhibits at the Rome Art & Community Center and in the Cogar Gallery at Herkimer County Community College.
A former Korean linguist, Fedchak is also a writer. His novels include The Broccoli Eaters, Love Among the Tomatoes, Bad Apple Jack, and the forthcoming The Magical Fruit and The Monks’ Love Potion, all from Blue Forge Productions in Seattle. From 1984 to 1993 he wrote an award-winning newspaper column called “Letters Home” for Canton’s St. Lawrence Plaindealer. He blogs as “Harriet” (among others!) at www.generalunitedindustries.com, and his personal website is www.greggfedchak.com.
