The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts is seeking submissions for its latest juried show. The Fall/Winter Exhibit at the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts will showcase art that tells the story of Transitions. Few times of the year remind us of the transitory nature of life more than the shift from fall to winter. As the days get shorter and one season fades into the other, we are often inspired to explore change in ourselves and our own work. For this show, we are seeking pieces that creatively interpret the theme of transition, evolution and rebirth. Both 2-D and 3-D works of all media are welcome.
The show opens on October 27 with a “Meet the Artists” reception. It will close on January 25, 2017. The deadline for submission is September 18. All works must be submitted via the website www.OnlineJuriedShows.com. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out Wednesday, September 21. Drop-off or arrival or work is October 5-8 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The jurors for this show are Brenda Dwyer and Mary Cleland. Both are artists and instructors with extensive exhibiting and teaching credentials. Both have completed works in watercolor, acrylics and oils as well as ceramics and mixed media. The prizes for this show will be juried by Constance Dodge, an accomplished painter and teacher with more than 30 years of experience. Through the generous donations of supporters, the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts is able to offer three prizes to outstanding submissions. The grand prize is $100 and a membership to the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts, while second prize is $50 and a membership and third prize is $35 and a membership.
The fee for entry of up to three (3) works is $25 for non-members and $10 per additional entry, for a total of five entries. Members of the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts may submit three entries for $15 and $7 per additional entry, for a total of five entries.
All are welcome to attend the “Meet the Artists” reception on October 27 from 6-8 p.m. at the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts, 2736 State Highway 30, Gloversville. These receptions are highly publicized; the most recent reception garnered more than 125 attendees. Throughout the show there will be multiple public events located in or near the gallery. We expect more than 750 visitors to view the work during the run.
