By Staff | Oct 4, 2010

BIG Arts invites artists using any type of media to submit entries for its BIG ARTS Members Juried Show of Excellence.

Entries must be hand delivered on Saturday, Nov. 13 from 9 a.m. to noon; art cannot be accepted prior to receiving day. More information and prospectus available at BIG Arts offices, or online at www.BIGARTS.org.

Juror is Jack O’Brien, curator at The von Liebig Art Center in Naples. An Artist Reception and Awards Presentation will be held in BIG ARTS Phillips Gallery on Saturday, Nov. 20 from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

Entry in this exhibit is open to BIG Arts members, (annual membership levels start at $50). The entry fee is $25 for up to two pieces.

Sculptors are encouraged to bring their own pedestals. Because Phillips Gallery is a multi-purpose room, sculpture will be displayed close to the wall. All wall artwork must be wired, ready to hang, and must not exceed 42 inches in any direction.

There is no theme for this exhibit. All work must have been created within the last two years and not previously exhibited at BIG ARTS.

Awards will be given to First Place ($600), Second Place ($400) and Third Place ($200), five merit awards ($35 each), plus five honorable mention ribbons. Works must be for sale, and may not be removed until close of show. The exhibit will be open from Monday, Nov. 15 through Wednesday, Dec. 29 and is supported by Visual Arts Patron Season Sponsors June Rosner and Russ Bilgore.
