During the month of
August, the Chesterton Art Center will be preparing for ArtComp, a juried
exhibition of local artists.
The ArtComp Opening
Reception will take place on Sunday, August 31 from 2-4 p.m. The show will
be on display from August 25 to September 27.
The show is open to
all artists over the age of 18 who reside in Indiana, Illinois and Michigan.
Work must be original in concept and execution, created within the past 2
years, not completed under instruction, and not previously exhibited at the
Chesterton Art Center. No copies or prints, published photographs, or other
artist's work will be accepted.
All work meant to
hang on the wall must be fitted with wire - no sawtooth hangers are allowed.
Sculptures must include an adequate base. The maximum size for 2-D work is
5' in any direction. 3-D work must not weigh more than 100 pounds. All
entries must be ready for installation and must not require the artist's
presence for hanging.
Each artist may
submit up to two entries for a non-refundable entry fee of $30 ($25 for
members of the Chesterton Art Center). Work may be dropped off at the Art
Center from July 26 to August 9, with a completed entry form, entry fee, and
appropriate labels on all submissions.
The Art Center is
open weekdays from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., and is
closed on Sundays. The pieces will be juried the week of August 11. All work
not juried into the exhibit must be picked up between August 18-23. A number
of awards will be given, including Best in 2-D and Best in 3-D, with prize
money totaling over $1,500.
artists must retrieve their work between September 29 - October 4. The
purpose of the show is to strengthen the development of individual artists,
and to stimulate and expand interest in the arts.
