Entries for the Davis Civic Arts Commission’s annual juried art show will be accepted from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 21, and Wednesday, June 22, at the Regency Square office building lobby, Second and D streets in downtown Davis.
Titled “Connections 2011,” the juried art show is an annual exhibit celebrating small works of art. Yolo County artists ages 16 and older, working in any medium, are encouraged to submit up to two entries. The pieces may be two- or three-dimensional, and may not exceed 12 inches (including frame) in any direction.
Work must be original and have been completed within the past two years. The entry fee is $10 per piece at the time of submission. Cash awards will be given out at the discretion of the show juror.
Every year, a professional in the arts is invited to jury the exhibit; this year the juror will be Susan Keizer. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Reed College and a master’s degree in art studio from Sacramento State, and was a MacDowell Fellow at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, N.H.
Her initial training in art studio took place between 1973 and 1977 at UC Davis. Since finishing her graduate work, she has taught in the art departments at UCD, Sacramento State and American River College, and has produced summer workshops through Portland State University.
The Juried Art Show is open from July 5 through Aug. 6 at the Regency Square office building lobby. A reception and awards ceremony is scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 8, to coincide with the Davis Downtown Business Association’s Second Friday ArtWalk. Participating artists will be in attendance, and merit awards, chosen by the juror, will be awarded that evening.
