Call to Artists: OC Arts Center Hosts Juried Art Show in November
Tuesday, 09 October 2012
The annual Juried Art Show will be held at the Ocean City Arts Center throughout November. Art will be received for judging October 8 through October 26. Prizes are: Best of Show, $200; Second Place, $100; Third Place, $100; and Four Honorable Mentions at $50 each. Artists may submit up to 2 works which have been completed in the past 3 years. Eligible mediums are watercolor, pastels, mixed media, drawing, and printmaking. All work must be wired and ready to hang. Art is also judged on the framing and presentation of the work.
Executive Director Rosalyn Lifshin said, "Last year we received a record-breaking 120 entrys and about 50 paintings were accepted. Atlantic County artist Rita Michalenko won Best of Show for her pastel "Fallen Oak" and went on to host a solo exhibit in August 2012. The Juried Art Show is a great venue for artists to display their works and go on to be featured in gallery exhibitions."
All work will be for sale. An awards ceremony will be held Friday, November 9, 7 pm to 8:30 pm. The public is invited.
