Friends of Shorewood Public Library Stages New Art Exhibit Showcasing Shorewood Artists
HURRY: DEADLINE TO ENTER MAY 22
If you are a Shorewood resident, there is still time to enter a new art exhibition to be held this summer at the Shorewood Public Library. The Friends of Shorewood Public Library is pleased to stage “Art Between the Pages,” a new, juried art exhibition showcasing local talent. “Art Between the Pages” will be on display from June 18 through August 29 at the Shorewood Public Library, 3920 N. Murray Ave. “Art Between the Pages” will celebrate the richness and talents of the Shorewood community and demonstrate what a desirable place Shorewood is to live, work and raise a family.
All Shorewood residents age 18 years and older are invited to enter “Art Between the Pages.” Original work in clay, fiber, glass, leather, metal, painting, paper, wood, printmaking, sculpture and mixed media is eligible. Work must be original and produced by the exhibiting artist. Work that has been produced with commercial kits, molds or pre-fabricated forms is not permitted, nor are reproductions. Component parts not made by the artist must play a subordinate role in the overall piece. Work must be appropriate for display in space available at the Library, including walls and the tops of low bookcases. There are no locked cases. (Please note that photography and jewelry are not eligible for this exhibit.)
Applications for “Art Between the Pages” must be received by Saturday, May 22. There is no fee to enter and artists may either send in photos of one to two pieces of work, or drop off their original art for jurying on Saturday, May 22 between 8:30-9:30 a.m. at the Library. (Original work can then be picked up the same day between 3-4 p.m.) Exhibit applications are available for pick up at the Library or they may be downloaded from the Library website at www.shorewoodlibrary.org.
Cash awards of $150, $100 and $50 will be awarded to first, second and third place winners. Work may be priced for sale, but all sales must be handled between the artist and customer after the show closes on August 29. All work will be insured during its display at the Library. An opening reception will be held at the Library on Friday, June 18 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Shorewood residents and guests will be invited to meet the featured artists, enjoy complimentary refreshments, and network with their neighbors and friends.
