The Creative Expression Art cluster is happy to announce details of the 2017 Grace Member Art Show. We are excited to bring this tradition back to Grace, which provides a great way to celebrate spring in Gainesville. The show will open March 15 and run through April 23. Participation as an artist is limited to Grace members.
Pieces submitted to this show will be limited to art that can be displayed on the parish hall walls, inclusive of paintings, mixed media, photography, and fabric. In order that we may accommodate as many pieces as possible, a maximum size limit is requested of 35″ X 52″. Please also be aware that all paintings, mixed media, and photography must be submitted with picture hanging wire attached. Any fabric pieces should include a sleeve with a sturdy dowel included.
This show is not a juried event and artistic pieces will be accepted in the order that applications are received. The total number of entries in the show is limited; depending on size of proposed art pieces and display space available. Grace reserves the right to reject any art that may be deemed offensive.
The application to participate in the show can be found online. Deadline for application submittal is January 9. We will notify you when the application is accepted and will communicate additional details including drop-off dates. You may request to submit a second piece, however, acceptance will depend on space available after all first requests are fulfilled. We would like to accommodate as many of our creative Grace member artists as possible.
For this show, craft retail will not be included in the event. Any inquiries for purchase of an art piece will be between you as the artist, and the prospective buyer.
If you have any questions, need clarification, or want to volunteer for planning and installation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Jim Taflinger. We look forward to showcasing the incredible artistic talents we have in our Grace family.
