Winter art show looking for entries

Rhode Island artists are invited to submit their work to the Conanicut Island Art Association's upcoming show titled "32° Degrees." This non-juried show is open to non-members and offisland residents as well as to current art association members.

The show will run from Dec. 11 through Feb. 12, 2009, at the Jamestown Town Hall Art Gallery.

"When thinking of a theme for our first winter show, we came up with '32°,' but we are not limiting interpretation to temperature. It could refer to geometry or latitude or anything else that springs to mind," said Don Miller, the CIAA president.

Artists are invited to enter up to two pieces of art, all of which must be for sale. An entry fee of $10 for the first piece and $5 for the second will be charged to non-members. Members will be charged $5 per item. There will be a 20-percent commission on pieces that are sold.

All pieces must be suitably framed, with wires, ready to hang. Pieces with saw-tooth hangers, clips, unprotected glass or other sharp edges will not be accepted. Framed artwork must not exceed 48-inches in any direction, and must not exceed 20 pounds.

Drop-off is on Thursday, Dec. 4, at the Jamestown Town Hall, 93 Narragansett Ave. Contact art show chairman Wendy Crooks 423-0993 for more information or for alternative drop-off arrangements.
