8/2/2011 - 8/2/2011: Juried Art Show Deadline Extended

Deadline Extended for Juried Art Show at 8th Annual Festival on the Green

 

August 2, 2011The Mansfield Downtown Partnership has extended the deadline for local artists to submit work for consideration for the Juried Art Show 8th Annual Festival on the Green. Entries will now be received until Friday, August 19, 2011.

 

The Juried Art Show is an annual attraction at the Festival, which celebrates the best of Mansfield with food, music, arts, and hands-on activities.  This year, the event will be Sunday, September 25, from noon to 5:00 pm in the front parking lots of E.O. Smith High School.  If it rains, the Festival 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 which 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 submission deadline is Friday, August 19, 2011.

 

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.
