Newark Arts Alliance Wants YOU...(to Provide Works for Its Newest Exhibit)!

Post information courtesy of The Newark Arts Alliance
The Newark Arts Alliance is presenting a “Community Art Gallery” from Tuesday, August 13, to Saturday, August 24.  The local community is invited to bring in works of art that they own and love for display in the Newark Arts Alliance’s Terry Foreman Gallery.  Works can be submitted from Friday, August 9, to Sunday August 11.  Participants should also bring a brief statement (200 words or less) on why they chose their piece for submission.  Works of art need not be original.  

This exhibition offers a chance for art lovers and collectors who are not necessarily artists themselves to participate in an exhibition.  However, artists are welcome to submit their own creations as well.  Only one work can be submitted per participant.  Submitting a work is free of charge, and works will not be offered for sale.

The Newark Arts Alliance’s Exhibition Committee will select as many works for display as space will allow.  Hanging works should have a tight hanging wire across the back.  Central hanging devices (e.g., rings and saw-tooth hangers) do not work with the Newark Arts Alliance’s hanging system.  The Exhibition Committee reserves the right to decline works, including works that are not properly prepared for hanging or display.

The Newark Arts Alliance will celebrate the “Community Art Gallery” with a reception on Saturday, August 24, from 6:00 to 8:00pm.  This event will be free and open to the public.  Drinks and light refreshments will be served.  Participants whose works are on display will be able to take their art home that night.  If unable to attend, participants should pick up their work as soon as possible following the end of the show during regular hours.
