CALL FOR ART: “MUSKOGEE IN FULL COLOR” ART SHOW
The Muskogee Art Guild is inviting both its members and all area artists to participate in the upcoming art show, “Muskogee in Full Color.” The show will open with a reception on Thursday, January 31 from 5:30 to 7:30 at the Muskogee Art Guild, 211 W. Broadway in Muskogee, and run through Tuesday, February 26. Artists can enter by bringing their work to the Muskogee Art Guild on Tuesday or Wednesday, January 29 and 30 between 10am and 4pm each day. The cost to enter is $10 per piece and a 10% commission will be taken on any work sold. This money will be donated to support the community food bank.
This show is part of a month-long event promoting positive race relations in Muskogee and is the idea of Rich Schaus, executive director of the Gospel Rescue Mission. The artwork submitted may be any media but must illustrate the theme “Muskogee in Full Color” and promote positive relations between all races. All hanging artwork must be properly framed and matted where applicable, and wired with sufficient strength wire for the weight of the art. Use standard backing and wire. NO saw-tooth hangers, spring clasps, clips, uni-frames, self-adhesive hooks, strings, cardboard hangers or brackets. No exposed edge on glass or plexiglass. Gallery canvas, properly painted and wired will be accepted without frames.
When art is delivered to the show, and before acceptance, it will be inspected to determine if it is properly framed and wired. No work will be accepted unless it meets specifications.
While all possible care will be taken, Muskogee Art Guild is not responsible for any loss or damage to art from the time it is accepted until it is picked up. Artist’s name, title of art, medium and price should be placed on the top right back of the art by the artist. All art must remain on display until the close of the show
All visitors to the art show, which will be open from 10 to 4 Tuesday through Thursday each week in February, will be able to cast their vote for their favorite art. The winner of this People’s Choice voting will receive $100 from the Muskogee Art Guild.
