Lanesboro Arts is announcing a new art show planned for 2015 highlighting the work of one to four emerging artists, as selected by a jury. Lanesboro Arts is now accepting applications in all 2D and 3D visual arts media from emerging artists, defined as 18 to 24 years old and not a full-time artist. A new program in 2015, this show will give emerging artists an opportunity to display work in a professional gallery setting. Entry deadline is January 17, 2015.
To apply, send high quality images of up to three pieces of artwork to Robbie Brokken, gallery director, at firstname.lastname@example.org, by January 17, 2015. Entries should include artist name, age, contact information, artistic medium and details for each piece submitted (title, medium, size, gallery sale price). Size limit for each piece is 40” wide by 40” high. Pieces chosen for the Emerging Artist Show will need to be framed and include a hanging wire in the back; all work in the Emerging Artist Show will be for sale as part of a consignment agreement (40 percent gallery, 60 percent artist). Selection by jury will be made by January 31 and those artists chosen for the show will be notified on that date. Work will need to be delivered to the Lanesboro Arts gallery between February 12 and February 17, 2015, by 11 a.m. (Please note, the gallery is closed on Sunday and Monday, Feb. 15 and 16.) The Emerging Art Show will open on Saturday, February 21, with an artist reception, and run through April 5, 2015.
