Call for Artists Deadline: Monday, Jan. 13
If you are a local visual artist, you have until the end of Monday, Jan. 13, to email or phone the Citizens Association of Georgetown to be a displayed artist in its February arts show, "Visions of Georgetown," at the House of Sweden. The popular show -- now in its fifth year and chaired by Laura-Anne Tiscornia-- is open to those who live or work in Georgetown.
"We have larger space this year in the Nobel Room at the House of Sweden," said curator Jennie Buehler. "It also has dramatic lighting for us to showcase the art" -- from some regulars to new talent. Also, expect larger pieces, she said.
Below are the requirements, as specified by CAG:
❖ The show is open to artists, who either are current residents of Georgetown or who have studios in Georgetown.
❖ The show will take place from Thursday, Feb. 6, through Sunday, Feb. 9, and will feature a reception on Thursday evening from 6 to 9 p.m. and midday special events and “art talks” featured on the Saturday and Sunday.
❖ Work may be for sale or for display only, as the artist wishes. CAG will process sales and pay artists at the end of the sale. CAG will receive 20 percent commission on all art sales.
❖ Artists pay a $50 entry fee to CAG to defray the cost of the show. In addition, each participating artist must complete a three-hour volunteer shift during the show.
❖ The show is open to artists working in the following media: painting, photography, sculpture, prints, two-dimensional and three-dimensional mixed media. We cannot accept jewelry or anything requiring electricity. Pieces accepted into the show should be of a suitable nature to be viewed by families with children.
❖ There is no jury. Entry is first-come, first-served. Please get your application and payment in promptly to secure your space in the show.
Artists may submit up to three pieces for inclusion in the show. The final number displayed will depend on space available.
(Maximum size per piece is 48 inches in the largest dimension, including frame.) All two-dimensional work must be properly framed and wired for hanging, or it will not be accepted. The Georgetown ARTS 2014 Hanging Committee will select pieces to be displayed based on space and composition.
❖ To enter, submit three jpegs -- and titles, size, year and price -- of your artwork to CAGtownART@gmail.com. Additionally, send a printed copy of your application and check for $50 (made out to CAG/Art Show) to Citizens Association of Georgetown, 1365 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, D.C. 20007 by Jan. 13 -- or call 202-337-7313.
