The Kefauver Studio & Gallery, Damariscotta, is calling for artists to participate in the “Still Life/Wildlife” show. This is the first show of the 2019 season and runs from June 7-30. The show will feature both still lifes on any topic representative of Maine and work that features Maine’s wildlife, so submitted works should be in keeping with that theme.
Each submitted work must be an original creation, and all mediums will be considered, including oil, watercolor, acrylic, gouache, photographs, sculpture, and woodblock prints. All work must be professionally presented and ready for hanging or displaying, with framed or painted edges and wired for hanging. Pedestals are available for three-dimensional work.
Several artists will be selected to present up to five works at the show. To enter, submit work in jpg form via email to email@example.com. Images should be titled as follows: artist’s last name and painting title.
The deadline for submission is Sunday, May 26 and drop-off of accepted work will be Monday, June 3 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or from 2:30-6 p.m. There is no fee for entering, but a $15 fee will be charged to cover all accepted works to help with exhibition costs.
The artist may price the work as he or she likes, but the work should be priced reasonably for sale. No “NFS” works will be accepted. All sales and sales taxes will be handled by the gallery, as will shipping, if necessary. In the event of a sale, the artist will be notified and may, but isn’t required to, replace the work sold. The gallery will retain a commission of 35 percent.
An opening reception, open to the public, will be held on Friday, June 14 from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
For questions about the “Still Life/Wildlife” show or for information on how to submit work, contact Will Kefauver at 226-0974 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Kefauver Studio & Gallery is located at 144 Bristol Road, Damariscotta, and is open Tuesday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
