Description

Calling all artists! Submit your work to Pequot Library’s 20th Annual Art Show, “The Story of Art.” Online submissions must be received by midnight on September 15, 2017 in order to be considered for entrance in this juried exhibition.

The Jurors are Adrienne Ruger Conzelman, a private art dealer and advisor, and the Director of ARC Fine Art in Fairfield and Helen Klisser During, an Art Advisor, Curator, Photojournalist, and Artistic Director Emeritus at Westport Arts Center.

The jurors are looking for a variety of artistic mediums, focusing closely on the expression, either traditional or abstract, of the story presented to viewers.

Submit your art directly to https://pequotlibrary.artcall.org/

All entries must be for sale, no exceptions. Prizes will be given for first, second and third place.

The entry fee is $25 per piece for up to five entries, and is non-refundable. The entry fee for young artists (age 22 and under) is $15 per piece. Entry fee includes one ticket to the Artists and Collectors Party on October 22, 2017.

Pequot Library will notify all artists of the status of their submission by October 1, 2017. Only artwork selected for the exhibition should be dropped off to Pequot Library on October 7, 2017 and must be picked up Sunday, October 22, 2017.

Accepted artworks will be on view from October 14 - 22, 2017 in Pequot Library’s historic auditorium, which provides an outstanding backdrop for the show.
