Entries are being accepted through Friday, Sept. 23 for the third annual Yarmouth Art Festival. The juried show, created in 2009 as a new venue for the Maine arts community, will be held Oct. 19 through 22 at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, 396 Gilman Road, about a mile from Cousins Island.

The festival welcomes paintings, sculpture, photography, etchings and digital media from any artist 18 and older who maintains a residence in Maine. The fee is $15 per person for the first piece, $10 for the second and $5 for every additional one.

Submissions are being accepted online and must include a digital image of each work. Participating artists are responsible for delivering their work to the show, and sculpture exhibitors are requested to place their own pieces. For an entry form and the rules, visit yarmouthartfestival.com.

Two of this year’s jurors are Elizabeth Moss, owner of Elizabeth Moss Gallery in Falmouth; and Anne Haas, art librarian at Bowdoin College in Brunswick. The 2010 festival drew more than 300 entries, with 147 pieces from 74 artists selected for display. A total of 45 pieces were sold, at prices ranging from $75 to $700. Net proceeds help support the St. Bart’s community service programs.

The festival will be held inside and on the lush grounds of St. Bart’s, a bright, post-and-beam space that will be converted into an art gallery. The show will be open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. An artists’ reception, including music and refreshments, will be held Thursday, Oct. 20 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Admission will be free for both the festival and the reception, with donations accepted.
