CALL for ARTISTS for Art Center Ukiah shows December-June 2019

   

December – Small Works

$10 fee for the first piece and $5 for each additional entry.

Multiple pieces of jewelry may be displayed on a board or frame that roughly measures 16″ x 24.” If the display is larger it will be charged as additional work.

Delivery date deadline: TUESDAY NOVEMBER 27

This show will be hung a week earlier than other ACU shows so it will be up and open to visitors on December 1st for the annual Holiday Open House and Craft Sale.

January – Deep Winter

January is our coldest, wettest season. Trees are dormant, nights are long, rivers rise and residents hunker down close to the fire. How do you relate to this chilly, dark season? Do you (or your subject) celebrate it or do you put your energy into hoping for warmer weather?

Open to all Mendocino and Lake County residents, $25 fee for the first entry, $10 for each subsequent entry, with checks made out to Art Center Ukiah. Completed entry forms and all ready-to-hang work must be delivered to the Corner Gallery (201 S State St in Ukiah) no later than noon on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Artists are encouraged to email photos of their submissions to acugallery@att.net by the middle of December for possible inclusion in the publicity for the show. A refund check will be mailed to the artist for any work not accepted in the show. The First Friday show opening is January 4 from 5-8pm.

February – Bejeweled

This show will feature jewelry of all kinds for Valentine’s Day. We are looking for pins, necklaces, earrings and bracelets in metal, plastic, fiber, clay, paper, stones or whatever you want to combine into an exquisite object of beauty. We also hope to see lavish wall art, either embellished or representing subjects that are bejeweled. This show will be a flight of fancy and a feast for the eyes.

Open to all Mendocino and Lake County residents. For jewelry, pieces must be displayed on a board or frame that is in the 16″ x 24″ size range, ready for hanging. Larger displays will be charged as multiple entries. Artists can supply their own display, or contact the gallery to borrow a framed piece of foam core. There is also the possibility of reserving a shelf in our jewelry case (gallery phone 462-1400). $25 fee for the first entry, $10 for each subsequent entry, with checks made out to Art Center Ukiah. Completed entry forms and all ready-to-hang work must be delivered to the Corner Gallery (201 S State St in Ukiah) no later than 5:00pm on Tuesday, January 29, 2019. Late entries will not be accepted. Artists are encouraged to email photos of their submissions to acugallery@att.net by the middle of January for possible inclusion in the publicity for the show. A refund check will be mailed to the artist for any work not accepted in the show. The First Friday show opening is February 1 from 5-8pm.

March – Go Figure

If you are a figurative artist and would like to participate in the Quick Draw demonstration, please email Jacquie at jlolich@pacific.net by the middle of February. Participation in this event will be by invitation only. Live models will be drawn by the selected artists, while gallery visitors look on and admire the process. The First Friday live event is March 1 from 5-8pm.

April – Gaia

The Greek goddess Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life; the primal Mother Earth goddess. And the first Earth Day, which was held on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. Where do these two concepts intersect in your mind? Representational or abstract, we are hoping to see your inspirations in all media.

Open to all Mendocino and Lake County residents, $25 fee for the first entry, $10 for each subsequent entry, with checks made out to Art Center Ukiah. Completed entry forms and all ready-to-hang work must be delivered to the Corner Gallery (201 S State St in Ukiah) no later than 5:00pm on Tuesday, April 2, 2019. Late entries will not be accepted. Artists are encouraged to email photos of their submissions to acugallery@att.net by the middle of March for possible inclusion in the publicity for the show. A refund check will be mailed to the artist for any work not accepted in the show. The First Friday show opening is April 5 from 5-8pm.

May – 10th anniversary of our Student Photo show

This one speaks for itself and will be curated by high school photography instructors. It is not open to the public.

June – Please Be Seated

Once again Art Center Ukiah will bring you our almost annual Chair Affair. You are invited to embellish and donate a spectacular chair for this important fundraiser and compete for the $100 Viewer’s Choice cash award. All proceeds from the silent auction will help us keep our doors open. Your donated chair can be as beautiful, nutty, repurposed or fanciful as you like, but PLEASE, we want it to still be functional as a useable piece of furniture when you are done doing your magic with it. We are also looking for two-dimensional “chairy” art for our walls. Indoor chairs, outdoor chairs, formal chairs and funky chairs… it’s up to you to delight us with your interpretation of the theme.

Open to all Mendocino and Lake County residents. No entry fee for donated art chairs. $25 fee for the first wall art entry, $10 for each subsequent entry, with checks made out to Art Center Ukiah. Completed entry forms, all chairs and all ready-to-hang work must be delivered to the Corner Gallery (201 S State St in Ukiah) no later than 5:00pm on Tuesday, June 4, 2019. Late entries will not be accepted. Artists are encouraged to email photos of their submissions to acugallery@att.net by the middle of May for possible inclusion in the publicity for the show. A refund check will be mailed to the artist for any work not accepted in the show. The First Friday show opening is June 7 from 5-8pm.
