Artists sought for small works show
The Haywood County Arts Council is seeking artists for its sixth annual small works show, “It’s a Small, Small Work” to be held Nov. 13 through Dec. 28 in Gallery 86.
The show provides a unique opportunity for budding artists to exhibit their work, as well as the opportunity for more seasoned artists to test their boundaries. The non-juried show is open to all artists with a permanent address in the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area, which includes the Qualla Boundary or any of the following counties: Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Buncombe, Burke, Caldwell, Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Surry, Swain, Transylvania, Watauga, Wilkes, Yadkin and Yancey.
All pieces submitted must be exactly 12” or smaller in every dimension, including base, matting, and frame. Each artist is required to submit original work (photographers submit prints) to include a minimum of three pieces and a maximum of five pieces.
Each artist entering the show will pay a flat fee of $25 for handling and publicity. All work must be for sale, priced at $300 or less, and must have been created in the last two years. All mediums are welcome. Artwork can be mailed or delivered to the Arts Council.
The Haywood County Arts Council’s small works show was launched in 2008 in response to a declining economy, and to demonstrate that original artwork is affordable and fun to purchase for gifts at Christmastime.
Most businesses, homes and apartments can accommodate smaller works of art—and the show promotes buying local and regional work to help support artists in western North Carolina.
