Calling All Local Artists:
Be a Part of Our 85th Anniversary Celebration
Regional artists and craftspeople in all media are invited to participate in 10x10x85, a juried exhibition celebrating The Whaling Museum's 85th Anniversary.
Entry Fee: $20 (includes free 10x10 canvas to be picked up at museum)
Entry Deadline: September 1, 2021
Exhibit Dates: October 1- December 15, 2021
Subject: Find a creative way to interpret or incorporate "85" (or 8 or 5) into your piece. The finished work must use the 10 x 10 canvas as a base and be able to be hung on a wall, but beyond that, let your imagination soar!
Jurors: Award-winning painter and former art educator Margaret Minardi and watercolorist and art educator Elizabeth Fusco.
Details: 10x10x85 will feature creative works using a 10x10 inch canvas provided by the museum as a starting point. From there you can paint directly on the canvas, create a mixed media piece, assemblage, build a sculpture on it….get inspired!
All works will be on sale for $100 each during the exhibition period. There will be a 50/50 split on proceeds with the artist, unless the artist would like to donate 100% of the sale to the museum. All funds raised will support museum education programming.
Celebrating 85 Years in the Community!
