Your PPAL Exhibits Committee has made arrangements for a juried show at the Summit Gallery in Weirton, WV September 27 through October 27, 2021. There will be a reception and awards presentation Tuesday, September 28, 6-8, COVID permitting.
Judging for awards will be done online by Barbara Jaenicke. (www.barbarajaenicke.com). Images must be uploaded during registration (72 dpi, 2 MB max, named LastName_FirstInital_Title,jpg).
You may enter up to three artworks for the entry fee of $25 and also up to six prints of pastels as bin art and nine cards or packs of cards of pastels. This is a complicated show and it's important that you carefully read the prospectus here.
In addition, in order to present a professional-looking show, PPAL has implemented exhibit standards that you must read and follow. You can find them here.
Due to the need to screen your work ahead of time for standards compliance at Gilberti Fine Arts in Coraopolis and the need to transport it to the venue in Weirton, packaging and labeling is very important. For packaging guidance, click here. The prospectus has printable labels, but for Microsoft Word fill-in-the-blank labels, click here.
Registration for the show is due online by September 14 and you can pay securely using PayPal even if you do not have a PayPal account or you can pay via mailed check to the address in the prospectus. When registering, you will need to enter information about your three paintings (title, size, price) plus information about your cards (unique piece ID, title/description, price) and bin art (unique piece ID, title, price) so be sure to read the prospectus and have all the information ready before you start registering.
If you would like to have your work be considered for inclusion in publicity efforts, please email a JPG image (300 dpi) of a work that will be in the show to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 15.
