Call for Art! NO SUBMISSION FEE!!
**DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER, SUBMISSION DROP-OFF HAS BEEN MOVED TO FEBRUARY 18, 2021 AT THE MUSEUM OF THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY BETWEEN 4:30-6:00PM**
Teen Art Club will host its first juried exhibition both virtually and at the Shenandoah Arts Council in March/April 2021. Teens (age 13 and up) who wish to participate may submit up to two works of art for selection. You do not have to be a regular attendee of Teen Art Club to participate! Submissions can be dropped off at the MSV on February 11, 2021 from 4:30–6:00pm (during February’s Teen Art Club meeting slot). Artists whose work is selected will also receive a certificate of participation in the show.
This exhibition will hang for the months of March and April in conjunction with Youth Art Month (March) and will be a companion to ShenArts’ annual Youth Art Month Show which showcases artwork from youth in grades K-8. This “teen only” option is geared towards taking participating artists through the process of planning for and submitting to a juried exhibition, and what comes next if selected. Bring your artwork to the submission drop off and we’ll walk you through steps to get signed in, talk about proper framing/display and answer any questions you might have about entering your work in an art show. The exhibition will be housed in the ShenArts Gallery at the Hexagon House at 530 Amherst St. in Winchester.*
As an exciting addition, a jury of the ShenArts Board of Directors will select 1 artwork from this exhibition to be included in our annual ArtScape banner program that will hang for a year on the Old Town Walking Mall. Find out more about ArtScape here. (If you want to be included in the TAC Exhibition, but do not want to be included for consideration in the ArtScape program, please opt out on your submission form.)
We would love to hear what you are thinking about submitting and we are always available to give you guidance and feedback, so do not hesitate to get in touch if you need some help planning your submissions. We can even set up a zoom to take a look at what you’re working on and talk one-on-one!
