The 9th Annual Open Juried Art Exhibit of the Plymouth Community Arts Council will take place during the month of April.
Artists 18 and older can submit two-dimensional works or hang-able 3D art in any media for the exhibition. Artists do not have to be members of the Plymouth Community Arts Council or Plymouth residents to submit entries.
The theme this year is “Roots” which includes artistic renditions of things with literal roots and also art about other types of roots. Each entry should be titled and include a descriptive sentence or phrase referencing the tie-in to the theme. This description will appear on the gallery card alongside the art when on exhibit.
A $100 People’s Choice Award will be presented at the end of the exhibit. Patrons may vote by ballot, available on site, listing the top three favorite pieces. Three Director’s Choice awards, and written critiques, will be presented to artists who best exemplify the theme. All four winners will receive a free three-month listing with click-on-link on the artist page on the artist page on the Arts Council website.
The entry fee for up to two pieces of art is $25 per artist. Entry forms are available on the arts council website, at the arts council building and on drop off days. All artwork must be for sale and the council will take a 30 percent commission. Drop off days for entries are noon until 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 4, noon until 5 p.m. April 5 or by prior appointment available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two-dimensional art must be framed and ready to hand or be a finished edge canvas with hanging wire. Art will be juried and may be rejected for any reason included excessive size. Art will not be accepted that does not have the proper presentation or hanging features.
There will be an artists’ reception from 6:30-8 p.m. Monday, April 9.
The Plymouth Community Arts Council is located at 774 North Sheldon Road in Plymouth.
