Hickory – Full Circle Arts of Hickory is looking for artists in the greater Hickory area to enter work for a new themed exhibition entitled Assemblages.
For this competition we are asking artists to submit works which are made up of different things put together in a cohesive artwork, hence the name “assemblages.”
The show will run from July 27 until August 26, 2017. We believe that this theme will add a more varied creativity and explore different mediums in the artists work.
Visitors to the show will be able to experience diverse and whimsical creations as the artists portray their ideas in their work in a variety of techniques and materials.
The show will be judged and juried for acceptance. The judge for this show is yet to be determined. We will be giving cash awards of $100, $75 and $50 for First, Second and Third place winners. Honorable Mentions will be awarded with ribbons.
Artists are allowed to enter up to 3 works of art for a fee of $35 for non-members, $25 for patron and associate members and $10 for Exhibiting members. No work may be larger than 48” in any direction. All 2-D work must be framed or wrapped and properly wired for hanging. 3-D artwork must be on a base or pedestal.
Artwork should be hand delivered to our gallery, 42-B Third Street NW, Hickory, Thurs. and Friday July 20 and 21, 11am-5pm and Sat., July 22, 10am – 2pm. Any pieces which do not make it into the show may be picked up at the reception or that weekend, July 27, 28 and 29 during gallery hours.
We will have an opening reception for the show on Thursday, July 27, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, where refreshments will be provided and awards presented.
Full Circle Arts will retain a 35% commission on any work sold for non-members, 30% for Associate Members and 20% for Exhibiting Members.
