Call for Art: Holiday Members’ Show & Sale

ON VIEW: DECEMBER 1-29, 2018 
December 1st marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of the KVAA!

Current members of the Harlow Gallery / Kennebec Valley Art Association (Click here to join.)

Harlow artist members are invited to submit one piece of art for the Annual Holiday Members’ Art Show and Sale which will be on view December 1-29, 2018 at 100 Water Street. Patrons can buy work off the wall and take it home the same day. If your work is sold we’ll call you and you can bring in new work to replace the one that sold! All media welcome including but not limited to: painting, drawing, printmaking, encaustic, fiber, ceramics, glass, wood, metal, and other mixed media. One work of art per member.

2 dimensional, wall hung work should not exceed 18″x 24″ including the frame (or a total of 432 square inches for non- standard support sizes). Larger work will be accepted, but if there is a space problem oversize work will be the first to be cut. In other words, if you choose to bring in over-sized work we cannot guarantee you a spot in the show. 3 dimensional works need to fit through the door, already assembled.

Please read our members’ show guidelines before submitting your work. The exhibition committee reserves the right to reject work that does not meet the guidelines. CLICK HERE FOR MEMBERS’ SHOW GUIDELINES.

To save time, please follow the link below to fill out the entry form online before you deliver your artwork to the gallery. We will have copies available at drop off also. CLICK HERE FOR ENTRY FORM.

During members’ shows, current members may submit up to 2 pieces of unframed, original 2 dimensional work (no reproductions including giclee prints). Work should be shrink wrapped or bagged, and no larger than 18×24. Pieces should be labeled on the back with the following information: artist’s name, title, media and price (remember to factor in the Harlow Gallery 35% members’ commission). Unsold work must be picked up at the same time as the work in the show.

Saturday, December 1, 5-7pm: Opening reception (potluck! please bring a dish or beverage to share), in tandem with opening reception for 8x10x100.
