Exciting news for all our members! We have the opportunity to place a show at the Boone County Historical Society starting in April! This will be great exposure not only for our group but also for all our artist members.
This will be a juried show so all work must be submitted to Mid-Missouri Arts Alliance, 115 E Broadway, Ashland, MO no later than April 8, 2017. You may submit as many pieces as you like. All 2D pieces must be properly framed or mounted AND wired for hanging. NO sawtooth hangers will be accepted. 3D work is also being accepted, pedestals will be provided. All work must be tagged with artist contact information and numbered to match the list that each artist will include with their submissions. The following information will be needed: Piece #, Title, Medium, Price. In addition to this list each artist will need to submit a brief bio or artist statement to be displayed with their work. Boone Co. Historical Society will take care of printing display cards and artist statements. Each artist will have their own section within the display hall.
Work does not have to be for sale but if it is Boone County Historical Society will retain a 35% commission on each sale and Mid-Missouri Arts Alliance will retain a 5% commission. 60% of the purchase price will be given to the artist so be sure to price accordingly.
This is a very large venue to fill so we need all artists to seriously think about participating. We will be getting exposure to a much larger community, we have plans in the works to appear on Pepper and Friends and will be in contact with the area print publications to help promote the show. Not to mention blasting away on Facebook!
Below is a link to the website for forms that you can download and fill out for your submission. One is the art list and one is the entry form with a place for you to fill out an artist statement. Or you can stop by the Art Center and pick up the printed forms.
There are more details to report, like when is the reception, actual dates of show, etc. I will keep everyone updated as things are finalized. Please don't hesitate to call or email with any questions!
Looking forward to seeing your submissions!
