In Shades of Gray: Juried Art Exhibition

Deadline: September 1, 2010 (RECEIVE)

“In Shades of Gray”
Juried Art Exhibition

The Pump House Regional Arts Center
La Crosse, Wisconsin
November 4 to December 23, 2010

“In Shades of Gray” explores the use of monochromatic, “black and white” in art. By eliminating the use of color, artists must address the other elements in their work and thus be challenged to look at their process in a new light. The Pump House Regional Arts Center is challenging artists to submit work for a juried exhibition, in media such as sculpture, paper, ceramics, paint, wood, metal, or any other media that artists may choose to work with including photography. The use of color will not be permitted.

Open to artists of any age. Submitted entries must not have been previously shown in La Crosse.

Acceptable Media:
Original 2-D and 3-D artwork in any medium, with the exception of film, video, and “live art.” Work must not exceed 48” in any dimension (including frame) and 70 lbs in weight. Only original work is allowed; reproductions of work from kits are not permitted.

Jury Fee:
A non-refundable fee of $25.00 will entitle the artist to submit artwork for jury. Current Pump House members may enter 3 pieces of artwork for jury, non members may enter 2 pieces. Please submit only ONE image per work. For 3-D work, more than a single image may be provided.

Cash prizes of $1000 for 1st place, $500 for 2nd, and $250 for 3rd place

All artwork must be for sale. There is a commission fee of 40%.
