CALL TO ARTISTS: Regional Arts Gallery at the Bennington Museum

The Bennington Museum is calling for regional artists to participate in the Regional Arts Program during the Spring and Summer of 2012. The Regional Arts Program is an ongoing series of juried exhibits, selected by a jury composed of local arts professionals. The museum welcomes applications in all media, from photography, illustration, and sculpture to traditional crafts and oil paintings. The jury is open to any and all art forms and styles. If you have submitted work before and have not been chosen, you are encouraged to re-submit as some exhibiting artists have been selected on a follow-up review. The panel will evaluate these submissions the week of December 19, so entries need to arrive at the museum by December 16.

A regional artist is defined as one who lives or works in southern Vermont or the adjacent areas of New York and Massachusetts. Artists must submit samples of their work either in slides, digital images, prints, or originals, an artist’s statement, and a one page proposal for gallery use. Successful applicants are given a six week showing in the Regional Arts Gallery of the Bennington Museum. The first show from the most recent group of selected artists will open February 4, with other sessions to follow. Applications can be picked up at the museum or by calling 802-447-1571.
