Call to Artists – Harrison Public Library Exhibits

The Harrison Public Library seeks artists for rotating exhibitions during 2020.

Interested artists are invited to submit samples of their artwork for review by a Juried Art Committee sponsored by the Harrison Council for the Arts.

Eleven artists will be awarded one person shows by our jury, with three alternate artists chosen as well, should unexpected circumstances prevent artists from exhibiting according to schedule. Group shows (2, 3 or 4 persons) will also be considered provided these artists register and submit work together. For group shows, all entrants must be chosen.

Important Dates/Times:
Sample Drop off: May 17, 2019 between 10am-4:30pm
Sample Pick Up: May 18, 2019 between 12n-4pm
Mailed Notification of Juries Decision: June 30, 2019

Submission requirements and eligible work:

> Two-dimensional art only
> Samples must be in the form of two different pieces of the actual art (preferably framed)
> 12 copies of the artist’s work either in the form of photos, prints, 35mm slides  or on a CD (all different/representational of the artist’s work)

If awarded exhibit time, you will be asked to call Giovanna Iannace at the Library (914/835-0324) and provide three choices for a monthly exhibit in 2020 (first come-first served; March is not available).  If Giovanna is not available, please be sure to leave a voicemail message.
