Call to artists for ‘Members Show’

Tue, 05/21/2019 - 1:00pm

River Arts is accepting submissions for its annual “Members Show.” The deadline for entry is Saturday, June 1 at 4 p.m.  Each member artist can submit one piece of work for the show. A current non-member artist may participate in the show by joining the organization at the time artwork is submitted.

The “Members Show” is a special event designed to honor River Arts’ members and feature their best work. All mediums, including photography, sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, and fiber arts, will be accepted as well as styles including abstraction and representational. Work must be suitably wired for hanging and clearly labeled with the artist’s name, phone number and title on the back.

The mission of River Arts is to nurture and encourage participation in the arts throughout Maine. As a part of its mission, River Arts provides exhibition, studio and performance spaces, and classes and workshops for people of all ages and abilities. In addition to the “Members Show”, it holds 9-themed, open, juried exhibitions per year, with some of Maine’s most prominent art community members as jurors. The gallery program creates opportunities for artists to have their work selected, participate in the gallery process, and sell their work.

The opening reception for the “Members Show” is scheduled for Friday, June 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. The show will run from June 7 to July 6.

For more information call River Arts at 563-1507 or visit the gallery at 241 U.S. Route 1 in Damariscotta during business hours, Tuesday – Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
