There is a long list of emerging and established artists who have exhibited at CityArts. The annual Arts Council Juried Art Exhibit at CityArts is one reason that list continues to grow. Time is running out, however, to participate in this year’s exhibit. Local and regional artists ages 18 and older have until Friday, Sept. 26 to submit entries. All two- and three-dimensional pieces in any media are eligible for consideration. Entry forms and guidelines are available at CityArts, 334 N. Mead, or online at WichitaArts.com.
“CityArts looks forward to hosting the Arts Council Juried Art Exhibit each year. It’s a defining moment for many artists because it’s their first opportunity to formally show their work to the public,” said CityArts Artistic Director Marilee Mitchell. “This exhibit encourages and supports local and regional artists as well as exposes the general public to the creativity and imagination that is present in the Wichita area.”
The juror for this year’s competition is Stephen Gleissner, Ph.D., ISA. He is an appraiser of art and antiques and a former chief curator at the Wichita Art Museum.
Entry forms should be accompanied by up to three digital images on a CD and a $30 nonrefundable entry fee. All artwork must be original. The Arts Council Juried Art Exhibit will be on display in CityArts’ Main Gallery Oct. 30 through Nov. 24. All CityArts exhibits are free and open to the public.
