Komanecky to jury

River Arts calls for ‘Innerscape’

Feb 12, 2014

Damariscotta — River Arts, a nonprofit art center on Route 1, invites Maine artists to submit work for the upcoming “Innerscape” juried exhibition. The exhibition will open with a 5 to 7 p.m. reception Friday, Feb. 28, and run through March 27. Submissions should be dropped off Friday and Saturday, Feb. 21 and 22, or earlier.

Juror for the exhibition will be Michael K. Komanecky, Chief Curator of the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland. Komanecky is the author of several books including “American Potters: Mary and Edwin Scheier” and “Jamie Wyeth, Rockwell Kent and Monhegan.”

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. Queries and requests may be directed to River Arts at 563-1507 or info@riverartsme.org.

River Arts is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
