Organizers are announcing a call for entries for artwork to exhibit in solo or two-person shows in the Exhibition Gallery at Lanesboro Arts in 2020. Available exhibits in 2020 are approximately eight weeks in length and artists working in all visual arts mediums are encouraged to apply. The Lanesboro Arts Exhibition Gallery seeks artworks that enrich both artist and community by initiating discussion and connection. These works should exhibit a unique vision and original voice, quality craftsmanship, and should be diverse and accessible to individuals from all walks of life. Both traditional and contemporary art styles are accepted.
Lanesboro Arts is located at 103 Parkway Avenue North in downtown Lanesboro and it attracts thousands of visitors each year to its galleries and year-round arts programs and events. As a nationally-recognized multidisciplinary arts organization with a passion for engaging a community with art, the Lanesboro Arts Galleries strive to present accessible and diverse works that foster educational opportunities for visitors as well as impacting artists’ careers. Lanesboro was recognized as one of America’s Top 12 Small Town Art Places in 2013 by Artplace America, and was named one of the Top 20 Small Towns to Visit in America by Smithsonian Magazine in 2014.
The annual deadline for entries is January 31, 2018. The application is available online at www.lanesboroarts.org under “Artist Opportunities.” Artists may also choose to download a hard copy of the application from the Lanesboro Arts website and send it in with a CD or flash drive containing digital images of work samples to Robbie Brokken, gallery director, Lanesboro Arts, PO Box 152, Lanesboro, Minn., 55949. Artists selected by the jury for exhibitions will be notified by the end of February 2018 at the latest.
