LANCASTER – The Lancaster Museum of Art & History (MOAH) is calling all local artists to submit work to “Innovations”, the upcoming 29th Annual Juried Art Exhibition. Last year’s show had more than 200 works vying to be exhibited in the Museum’s South Gallery. This year, the Museum would like to surpass that number. The exhibition will run from January 23 through March 13, 2014.
The submission deadline is January 3, 2014.
Any work which has been produced in the past three years and has not been shown at the Museum of Art & History, formerly the Lancaster Museum/Art Gallery, is eligible for submission. In addition to the opportunity to show artwork in the Museum, accepted entries are also eligible for cash prizes and other awards.
All forms of artistic media, including, but not limited to, painting, photography, and mixed-media are welcomed. This year, online submission is the preferred method of submission; however, applicants submitting in person may bring their exhibition-ready artwork(s) to the Lancaster Museum of Art and History by Friday, January 3 for consideration.
Submitting artists should first pay for their submission(s) via the MOAH website: www.lancastermoah.com. Click the “Juried Art Exhibition” image for submittal instructions. After the payment has been processed, a receipt number will be generated. Next, the submission form can be found at http://www.lancastermoah.org/artwork-submission.php. Select “29th Annual Juried Arts Exhibition” in the “Submission For” tab from the drop-down list of options. The form will then ask for the payment receipt number generated earlier. Next, upload digital images of the entries. A maximum of three pieces may be entered for consideration. A number will be assigned to each entered piece to ensure the anonymity of judging.
The entries will be judged by southern California artists Ray Turner, an American artist known primarily for his portrait and landscape painting, and award-winning sculptor Sarah Perry, who resides in Tehachapi.
