Mansfield Downtown Partnership Invites Local Artists to Participate in Juried Art Show
May 17, 2012 – The Mansfield Downtown Partnership’s Festival on the Green subcommittee is pleased to announce its annual Juried Art Show as part of the Ninth Annual Festival on the Green. The Festival will be Sunday, September 23, from noon to 5:00 pm in the front parking lots of E.O. Smith High School. If it rains, the event will be held inside the school.
A Call to Artists and Prospectus is available for local artists who are interested in submitting works for consideration. Interested artists may contact the Partnership office at 860.429.2740 to request these items or to receive additional information about this wonderful community event.
Area artists wishing to exhibit may submit up to four (4) pieces of creative works of original art for review. These pieces may be two- or three-dimensional and, because space is limited, they must be no more than 36 inches by 48 inches (the maximum single measurement for sculptures must be 48 inches). This measurement includes the frame. A selection committee will determine what pieces will be shown. Of the shown pieces, a jury will award the following prizes: Best in Show ($250), 1st ($125), 2nd ($100), and 3rd ($75) during the Festival on the Green. There is a non-refundable $10 entry fee. The deadline to submit is Friday, August 17, 2012.
Participation in the Festival’s Juried Art Show is a unique opportunity for local artists to showcase their work and to join in the celebration of Mansfield. Our community will have the opportunity to enjoy fine art created by neighbors and friends and to become more aware of the quality of artists in our region.
