Sweetwater Artists Open Deadline Friday, April 26 @ 5pm, White Mountain Library

Posted on March 26, 2013 by Brittany Wells

Local artists, amateur and professional, are invited to apply for the 17th Annual Sweetwater Artists Open Exhibition. It is scheduled for May and June and at the White Mountain Library. Tri-fold application forms with guidelines are available at the libraries in Green River and Rock Springs and at the Community Fine Arts Center.

The annual “Open” is an opportunity for Sweetwater County artists to show their artwork in a group exhibit. Applicants are invited to submit two 2D original works including paintings, drawings, prints or collages for the exhibit (sorry no photographs). The exhibit is sponsored by the Sweetwater County Library System and coordinated by the Library System’s Exhibits Committee. The deadline to submit applications and art is Friday, April 26 at 5 p.m. to the White Mountain Library. The exhibit runs May 1 through June 29, 2013. Work may be picked up the following week at the White Mountain Library.

Guidelines for the “Open” include that the work is original in concept and execution. Copy work will not be accepted. Each artistic piece must not have previously shown in the libraries. All work must be framed appropriately. The exhibits committee emphasizes that the work must be ready to hang with wire since hooks and brackets present problems in hanging. An information card, which is included in the application, should be attached to the back of each piece. The “Open” is for adult artists who are out of high school.

The Exhibits Committee meets several times a year to review applications from individual artists and schedule exhibits. Applications for individual exhibits are available at the library circulation desks. For more information about library activities visit the Library System’s web page
