Call for Art: Summer Member’s Show – Striped

Current members of the Harlow / Kennebec Valley Art Association only! (Join here.)

The Harlow invites their artist members to submit one piece of art responding to the theme of “Striped” for the annual Summer Members’ Show and Sale. The theme is open to the artists’ personal interpretation. This opportunity is open to current members of the The Harlow/Kennebec Valley Art Association only. All media welcome, including but not limited to painting, sculpture, drawing, digital, printmaking, fiber, photography, mixed media, ceramics, installation and more. One work of art per member.

CLICK HERE FOR ENTRY FORM: Artists must fill out the online entry form before drop off day.

SIZE LIMIT: Member’s shows are very popular – we currently receive up to 100 works, which is quite a challenging number to hang. So even though we love large format art, members’ shows just aren’t the place for it. The size limitation as follows applies only to 2 dimensional work – sculpture just needs to fit through the door already assembled: No wall hung work may exceed 18″x24″ including the frame (or a total of 432 square inches for non-standard support sizes). Large 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.

PARTICIPATION GUIDELINES: 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. (Members’ Show and Sale Guidelines)

BIN WORK (OPTIONAL): During members’ shows, current members may submit up to 2 pieces of original 2 dimensional work (no reproductions including giclee prints) . Work should be shrink wrapped or bagged, and no larger than 18 x 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.
