Thursday, January 6, 2011 - 8:52 am

MASSENA – The Massena Artists Association has put out the call for artists for its 26th Annual Juried Art Exhibit from Feb. 8 through Feb. 25 at the Massena Public Library.

All artists, amateur or professional, living within a 100-mile radius of Massena are invited to submit work to this exhibit.

Young people are also encouraged to submit entries.

Artists may submit either one or two entries.

Work may be on any subject, but should have been completed within the last three years. All entries must be the artist’s original work.

The exhibit is open to all media, including: oil and acrylic painting, watercolor, pastel, drawing, mixed media, sculpture, and photography.

Two-dimensional work must be suitably framed, with wire attached for hanging.

Works on paper must be covered with glass or plexiglass to protect the surface of the work.

Because of the weight and fragility of glass, it is recommended that larger works be glazed with plexiglass.

Work must be no larger than 40 inches in any direction.

Artwork may be delivered to the Massena Public Library at the following times:

Saturday, Jan. 22, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Thursday, Jan. 27, from 1 to 8 p.m.

Friday, Jan. 28, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Work should be accompanied by a $15 entry fee (American funds) for either one or two pieces.

MAA members and artists who have exhibited in the past should have received application forms in the mail.

Additional application forms may be picked up at the Massena Public Library.

For more information, or to receive application forms by mail, call Dorothy Badger at 769-5571 or Cecilia Dewey at 769-6210.
