The Imago Foundation for the Arts is issuing a call for artists for the fifth annual juried art competition to be held at IMAGO, a gallery of art and fine craft, located at 36 Market Street. The show is called “Line, Form and Function.”
Artists are invited to submit drawings, paintings and sculpture. Work must be dropped off at the gallery for judging between the hours of noon and 4 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 7 or noon to 2 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 8. Artists may submit up to three pieces for a fee of $12 per piece or $30 for three.
All work must be properly framed and ready to hang. Any unusual requirements for display must be provided by the artist. Work must fit through a normal size doorway. Those submitting work must be at least 18 years of age. IMAGO members are not eligible. Because IFA is a nonprofit organization, there will be no commissions and all proceeds from sales will go directly to the artist.
Selected work will be exhibited at the gallery from Nov. 11 – 28. A public reception will be held on Nov. 12 from 7 to 9 p.m. The gallery is closed Thanksgiving Day.
Juror for the show is John Udvardy. Udvardy taught three dimensional design and was chairman of the Foundation Studies Program at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI, for many years. He is currently a distinguished professor emeritus at RISD and recently was awarded RISD’s Gold Sophia Medallion in recognition of his 34 years of outstanding teaching and service. As a sculptor and artist, he has an extensive exhibition record and his work is included in many public and private collections.
IMAGO was established as a cooperative art gallery in 2003. Regular gallery hours are Thursday 4 -8 p.m., Friday and Saturday noon to 4 p.m. and Sunday noon to 4 p.m.
