LVAG Members, it's that time again. The Green Valley Library Show will be up from October 1st through the 27th. Entries are due by September 14th.
Eligibility: Open to all current LVAG Members. Wall art and 3-D artwork will be accepted. All artwork must be original work, no reproductions or copies allowed. Subject matter should be appropriate for viewing by children and adults in the library environment.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: MIDNIGHT SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2014
Entry procedure - Entries will be juried into the show from photos or digital images (.jpg), one photo or image per work. Label each image with name of artist, title of work, medium, size (including frame) and price on the back of the photo or in the body of the email. Online applications and images should be sent to: LVArtistsGuild@gmail.com. Photos should be mailed to LVAG, 3409 Mary Ann Ave., Las Vegas, NV, 89101. Either way, please complete and include the entry form below or provide that information in another manner. Artists will be notified by September 19 whether or not their work has been accepted.
Accepted artwork should be hand-delivered to the Green Valley Library, 2797 N. Green Valley Parkway, Henderson, NV on Friday, September 26 between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. If this time is a problem please contact our President, Patsi Hughes (LVArtistsGuild@gmail.com). The hanging fee will be $15 for the first piece and $5 fee for an additional entry, with two pieces maximum. All monies collected will go to the Dale Karr Scholarship Fund.
All 2-dimensional work must be suitably framed and presented with two D-rings, 2” down from the top of the frame: no wires, sawtooth hangers or similar hardware may be used. Gallery wrap is fine. Pieces 16” x 20” or larger that have to be under glass should use plexiglass, except for pastels which cannot use plexiglass. 3-dimensional work will be displayed inside covered pedestals; hence the largest dimension of a 3-dimensional work may not be more than 15”. Photo artwork must be presented with glass/glazing.
Persons interested in purchasing artwork will be asked to contact LVAG; that information will be passed on to the artist. Although every care will be taken to handle art carefully, LVAG and the Green Valley Library will not be liable for any damage or loss of artwork; artists will be responsible for their own insurance. Submission of an entry to this show constitutes acceptance of all conditions. After the show closes artwork can be picked up on Tuesday, October 28 from 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm.
Suggestion: If possible, please photograph your work before putting it under glass or plexiglass, as photographing work under glass can be difficult.
An Artists Awards Reception will be held on Wednesday October 1 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Ribbons will be awarded.
LVAG members, let’s show our talents like we did last year!
