Call for Artists: Images 2017

Deadline: May 5, 2017

Images 2017 is a juried exhibition of drawings, paintings, mixed media, photography, hand-pulled prints, watercolors, fiber, paper, and digital art. Images 2017 is open to artists whose primary residence is in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Artists of all ages are welcome, and we especially encourage enrolled students from ages 16 through 26 to apply to the exhibition. Artists enter the show by submitting digital images of work created in the last three years.

Artists will be eligible for at least $1,500 in prizes awarded by the juror.  There will be merit awards, a Best of Show, and awards for best pastel, best drawing, and best student submission.

The deadline to apply is May 5, 2017

The exhibition will hang in Schlow Centre Region Library throughout the month of July 2017. The Library is located on South Allen Street in downtown State College. Allen Street becomes “main street” of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts each July.

The Images 2017 exhibition is made possible in part by sponsorships from the Art Alliance of Central Pennsylvania, Central Pennsylvania Pastel Society, Joyce Robinson & Norman Spivey, the Schlow Library Foundation, and the Sturtz-Davis family. Special thanks to our exhibition partner and host, Schlow Centre Region Library.

Show hours at Schlow Centre Region Library are the same as the library’s hours, generally from 9 am – 8 pm on Mondays – Wednesdays, noon – 8 pm on Thursdays, 9 am – 6 pm on Fridays, and 9 am – 5 pm on Saturdays. The library is closed on Sundays.  There may be times when the work displayed in the Downsbrough Room is not accessible due to other library programming. To check the library’s hours, please call (814) 237-6236.

The Awards Reception will be held Thursday, July 13, at 6:30 p.m. at Schlow Centre Region Library.  The reception is hosted by the Schlow Library Foundation.
