AVA Seeks Artists for Autumn’s Blessings Show
For the Antigo Times
Antigo Visual Arts (AVA) is looking for area artists to participate in its 2018 Autumn’s Blessings show. The show will hang in the AVA Gallery at the Langlade County Historical Museum, 404 Superior St., Antigo, September 14 – November 28. Autumn’s Blessings is a judged show.
“The show is open to all area artists 15 and over,” AVA Gallery Director Karen Aulik-Now said. “And, like in previous years, both cash and ribbons will be awarded to the first, second and third place finishers. Honorable mentions may also be awarded at the discretion of the show judge.”
Each artist may enter up to five pieces of original art. The work can be: paintings, photography, mixed media, sculpture, textiles, pottery, woodworking, wood carving, or monoprints. The show has no theme so just about any piece of art can be entered. All entries, however, must be original works of art, entirely the work of the entrant.
AVA members in good standing will pay $5 for each piece entered. Artists who are not AVA members pay $10 each for the first two pieces they enter and $5 each for each entry after that. Show Entry Forms are currently available in the Gallery at the Museum. They can also be downloaded here: http://www.antigovisualarts.org/ava-pdf.html. Entry forms must be completed by Friday, August 31.
Completed forms, along with a check for entry fees, can either be returned to the museum or mailed to: AVA Autumn’s Blessings Show, PO Box 312, Antigo, WI 54409. A show judge is yet to be selected.
AVA Artists will be hosting a free, public wine and cheese reception Friday, September 14 from 5 to 7 pm in the AVA Gallery at the Historical Museum, 404 Superior St., Antigo.
