The Pence Gallery invites artists 18 years of age or older to participate in its 24th annual Community Hang-Up exhibit. This non-juried exhibition, on view from July 12 to Aug. 18, features artwork in a variety of media, including sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, textiles and more.
The Pence Gallery is hosting a public reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 12. An awards ceremony will take place at 8 p.m. One participating artist will receive the Curator’s Choice award, given to an outstanding work of art by the Pence curator along with a $100 award. One artist also will win the Public Choice award, which will be given out at the end of the exhibit, selected through public voting.
Artists should bring one artwork, fully prepared for installation, to the Pence Gallery, 212 D St., between 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday or Monday, July 7 or 8. Work should not exceed 30-by-30-inches. A $20 entree fee ($15 for Pence Gallery members) guarantees the inclusion of one work. Participation is limited to the first 50 artists on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Community Hang-Up exhibit brings people together to see the work of their friends, uncovers budding artists who have never exhibited previously, and celebrates art by members of the growing local artistic community, unveiling exceptional regional talent.
