WVM to Reopen Small Artworks Gallery

smallartAt the beginning of this year the Wenatchee Valley Museum opened a “Small Artworks” Gallery as a pilot project. It was an effort to benefit North Central Washington artists and local art collectors and to foster a greater appreciation for collecting and displaying art in our area.

The pilot program was a success and now the Museum is expanding the Small Artworks Gallery!  Two additional cases have been added in the museum’s entrance lobby to display work. A “Call for NCW Artists” is available to encourage participation and the gallery will open on November 7during the Wenatchee First Friday ArtWalk in time for holiday shopping.

The deadline for North Central Washington Artists to submit their work to be juried is October 4, 2014.

Here are the rules for the exhibit:

Artists must be 18 years or older and live in Chelan, Douglas, Grant or Okanogan County.

Artists may submit up to 10 pieces in any media. NO STUDENT WORK PLEASE.

All work must be No Larger than 16” in any direction, including any mats or frames.

All work must be priced under $100. All sales will be done through the Museum with a commission rate of only 30%.

All submissions are by digital image – up to 10 images may be submitted.
