Call to Artists

                 Open Call to Artists  ~  Deadline Saturday, February 1

River Arts in Damariscotta invites artists to submit artwork for the juror’s selection for the upcoming show, “Artist’s Choice.”  We are delighted to announce that Winslow Myers will be the juror for this open show.  The deadline for dropping off work at the gallery is Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 4 pm.

Winslow Myers is an artist and educator known for his portraits as well his large paintings. Natural and industrial forms inspire him to work both with abstraction and representation at the same time. His recent, large scale, diptych series combine contrasting subjects in compelling visual statements. With degrees from Princeton, Boston University and a Masters of Fine Art from Queens College, Myers has taught painting, drawing and art history in a number of schools and colleges including the Rhode Island School of Design.

Artists may choose works that best represent their individual style and preference for this show that includes all mediums including but not limited to painting, drawing, sculpture, fabric, photography, printmaking and ceramic works.  With this open themed show, artists may choose subject matter from representational to abstract to present to the juror.  All works must be gallery ready and wired for hanging.

Artists may submit up to three works for the juror.  Fee for entry per artist is $15 for River Arts’ members and $25 for non-members.  All works must be for sale and River Arts retains 35% commission on sold artwork.  Notification of accepted works will be emailed to all submitting artists by Wednesday, February 5.  The opening reception for “Artist’s Choice” will be Saturday, February 8 from 3 to 5pm.  This show runs until March 7, 2020.

River Arts is located at 241 Route 1 (north) in Damariscotta. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday 10 am to 4 pm.  The gallery is closed on Sunday and Monday in the winter.
