Deadline to submit:   October 13

Fall Opening Reception:  November 1

This show will run November - end of January

Sugar Grove's own artist Deann Alleman will be the featured artist for this showing and highlighted in our grand foyer.   Other art selections for the hall gallery or glass cases will be based on fit and space.   Art, sculpture, handcrafts, mixed media are all invited to submit.  

Please download the submission form HERE.   It should be completed and emailed back with digital images to shannon@sgpl.org

This fall we will be doing another open call, mixed show for artists.    Our theme will be “The Warmth of the Seasons.”    Think of pieces that match the approaching fall and winter seasons as this show will hang through the first of the year, take down date pending.    As this show will be on display during our large holiday events and Holiday in the Grove, we hope to show pieces that will fit fall and seasonal warmth.   It doesn’t have to be too “thematic”……but I’d like to show pieces that make people feel warm, cozy, invited in, pensive, reflective, or just wowed.   It is a season of wonder after all.  The earth changes, we reflect on our gifts, we huddle up with family.

Each artists is invited to submit up to four pieces for consideration.   Not all may be selected as we do hope to do a large feature of one artists in the main foyer.    However we do intend to show as many pieces as possible in an attraction fashion. 

We have two total glass cases with shelves that can be varied in length.  If you do small pieces or sculpture, the four piece limit may be revised if you are submitting small pieces. 

Each artists must prepare a bio, and drop off/pick up work as the show schedule dictates.  Public sales are welcome and encouraged.   

Opening Reception - The opening reception will be held on November 1 with the music of Eric Peter Schwartz, light refreshments and wine.   The public is cordially invited to attend.  Further details about the event
