Call to Artists – Harrison Public Library Exhibits

Artists who are interested in exhibiting at the Harrison Public Library, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY for approximately one month during 2020 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.

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 17, 2019 between 10:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. All artists must pick up their samples on Saturday, May 18, 2019 between 12:00 and 4:00 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 photos, prints, 35mm slides  or on a CD (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, 2019.  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.

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.
