CALL FOR SAUGERTIES ARTISTS! 

Friday, October 5, 2018 - Sunday, October 28, 2018

"The Village is a Gallery: Call for Art."

 

Submit your work to be shown as part of “The Village Is A Gallery” for Shout Out Saugerties, during the month of October, 2018. Saugerties will Shout Out that our community is brimming with artists! We want visitors to the village to see art wherever they go…including in the windows of our Nationally Registered Historic Business District. Many merchants are enthusiastic about taking part, and we anticipate that a majority of storefronts will be hosting artwork. 

We are looking for both 2 and 3 -dimensional fine art including but not limited to, photography, printmaking, collage, sculpture, assemblage. While subject matter is artist’s choice, harmonizing with the aesthetic of the store is important for some shop owners. We hope to present a diverse selection of art from a broad cross section of our Saugerties artist community. Artists must live or maintain a workshop/studio in Saugerties (zip code 12477) to qualify. 

To be considered for a window display, please send at least 4 high quality jpeg images of your work. Shout Out will work with merchants to match the art with their venue. Size matters, depending on venue and space. Most windows are not huge, so bear that in mind. Art should be appropriate for viewing by all ages, as this is a public event. The number of overall pieces selected for display will depend on the number of venues available. Submission of work does not guarantee inclusion in a display. 

There will be a map of where the art can be seen, and the grand opening of “The Village Is A Gallery“ will be on the first Friday October 5, celebration. Work will remain on display throughout the month. For anyone interested in purchasing work, merchants will direct inquiries to the artist.
