CLOSED. Call for Art: Summer Members’ Show

On view: June 24 – July 23, 2016

Current members of the Harlow Gallery / Kennebec Valley Art Association only!

Harlow Gallery artist members are invited to submit one piece of art for the annual Members’ Show and Sale. All media welcome, including but not limited to painting, drawing, printmaking, fiberarts, photography, sculpture and fine craft. One work of art per member. We ask that artists please fill out the new online entry form BEFORE drop off day. 

Please fill out your entry form HERE: Members Show Entry Form Summer 2016

Member’s shows are very popular – we currently receive about 100 works, which was quite a challenging number to hang. So even though we love large format art, members’ shows just aren’t the place for it — we have instituted a size limitation as follows (only for 2 dimensional work – sculpture just needs to fit through the door): 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.

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.

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).
