Glenburn Township will be hosting an art show and sale of original paintings by local artists. The show will be held at the Glenburn Township Building located at 3110 Waterford Road, Dalton, PA and will run through the month of October. The opening reception will be on Sunday October 1st from 3-5pm and is open to the public.
The theme of this year’s show is “Artistic Visions”. This theme allows artists to chose from many different types of works including but not limited to still life, landscape, portraiture, wild life, and abstract art. Works can be plein air or studio paintings. All painting mediums and photography will be accepted. The number of works allowed for each artist will be determined by the amount of available space. Each artist may submit up to 4 works. Framed artwork should not exceed the size of 40 x 40 inches due to space considerations. All entries must be appropriately framed and wired for hanging. Any artwork not appropriately framed will not be accepted. All artwork will be subject to review by the hanging committee and will be hung at the discretion of the hanging committee.
Artists from Lackawanna and surrounding counties are invited to participate. Drop off of artwork will be from 9 – 12 noon Monday through Thursday the week of September 25, 2006 or by special arrangement with Township secretary Joanne Benson. Pick up of artwork will be November 1st and 2nd from 9-12 noon or by special arrangement with Joanne.
Since there is no entry fee, each participating artist will be asked to donate a finger food for the opening reception or, in lieu of food, a $10 donation to be used towards paper goods, beverages and advertising expenses for the show and reception. Monetary donations will be accepted when you drop your painting off. Food will be accepted the day of the reception and can be dropped off at 2:30pm the day of the show.
