The Art Guild invites all artists to enter “RED!: The Vibrance, Passion & Beauty, A Juried Competition and Exhibition.” A color of nuances and contradictions, RED, in all its hues, always stands out and makes us take notice. Pink carnations, a red barn, the red velvet box of Valentine’s chocolates, a red-hot flame, the scarlet of an autumn leaf, or a red pair of shoes all evoke a spectrum of emotions and ideas. Show your passion for the vibrant beauty of RED in “Heart Month.”
All artists, 18 years and older (high school students ages 14 to 18 years may enter in the student category), are invited to submit up to three works for consideration. All styles from abstract to realism are welcome. Mediums may include, but are not limited to, acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel, mixed media, collage, encaustic, etching/prints, or sculpture (with pedestal). No photography, digital manipulations, copies, reproductions or giclées.
All works must be original and have been created in the last five years. The deadline for submissions is Friday, Jan.11. Artists may register online or download the prospectus at TheArtGuild.org. The exhibit will be on view from Feb. 2 to 24. Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays, from 1 to 5 p.m. or weekday hours by appointment. An artists’ reception and awards ceremony will be held on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 3 to 5 p.m.
