Call for ‘Celebrating Color’
Damariscotta — River Arts, a nonprofit art center on Route 1, invites Maine artists to submit work for the upcoming “Celebrating Color” juried exhibition. The exhibition will open with a 5 to 7 p.m. reception Friday, Nov. 15, and run through Dec. 16. Submissions should be dropped off Friday and Saturday, Nov. 8 and 9, for jurying on Sunday, Nov. 10.
Gallery owner and artist Bruce Busko will be the juror for this exhibition. He is the owner and director of the Landing Gallery in Rockland and shows his own work widely in Maine and New York. Landing Gallery shows work that is accessible in content and cutting edge in technology in group and solo shows. Busko has a bachelor of fine arts degree from Pennsylvania State and an MFA in Painting and Print Making from the Pratt Institute.
All media, styles and subjects are welcome, and all work entered must be for sale. Wall-hung work size maximum is 60 inches in height, 42 inches in width. For safety reasons, Plexiglas or other non-glass option should be used for work over 34 inches, excluding pastels.
Early submissions are accepted within usual gallery hours. Artists may submit up to three works for an entry fee of $20, $15 for members. Artists will be notified by email or phone of the juror’s decision. Submissions may not have been shown at River Arts previously. Entry forms are available online at riverartsme.org and at the gallery when submitting.
