Artists who are interested in exhibiting at the Harrison Public Library, Halperin Building, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY for approximately one month during 2017 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. Please note for group shows, all entrants must be chosen.
If you are interested in competing for one of these shows, please bring samples to the Harrison Public Library, Halperin Building, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY on Friday, May 13, 2016 between 9:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. All artists must pick up their samples on Saturday, May 14, 20164 between 12:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Two-dimensional art only is eligible and the 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 35mm slides or photos or prints (all different/representational of the artist’s work), and a resume.
If you choose to participate, you will be notified of the jury’s decision by mail no later than June 30, 2016. If awarded exhibit time, you will be asked to call Dan Briem at the Library (914/670-3117) and provide three choices for a monthly exhibit in 2017 (first come-first served; March is not available).
We will confirm your exhibit date by mail and at that time you will be asked to sign the Art Exhibit Agreement, which must be returned immediately. The applicable fee is due three months prior to the exhibit date.
