The Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut’s ESCAPE to the Arts invites artists working in all media to submit artwork for the upcoming exhibition Transportation. Works should depict various means of transportation (cars, trains, planes, boats, etc.) or be constructed with re-purposed parts. Works may be representational or abstract. This show will run from September 22 through October 31, 2014 in the Art Gallery at ESCAPE to the Arts, Danbury, CT. For guidelines and an entry form, call ESCAPE to the Arts at 203.794.1413 or visit www.regionalymca.org.
All work must be ready for installation. Any work considered unsafe is not acceptable. 2-D works must be properly framed for hanging with wire on back. Wires must be securely fastened with hooks on the back of the frame. Wire must not extend above top of frame. No saw tooth or loop hangers permitted.
Works in the following mediums should also be protected behind glass (or plexi-glass): watercolor, printmaking, pastel, graphite and photography. Works that are not properly framed will not be accepted.
For heavy sculptures and large 3-dimensional works, we may require your assistance during installation.
The Regional YMCA reserves the right to reject any and all works of art submitted for exhibition that do not meet the proper specifications as described above.
All work exhibited must be for sale. The Regional YMCA (ESCAPE to the Arts) will handle sales of work and retain a 30% commission on works sold as a result of the exhibit.
