Call for entries: Sweet Pea Art Show

The Sweet Pea Juried and Open Art Shows will be displayed in the Bozeman Public Library from July 31st and Friday, August 29th. All artists and the public are invited to the opening reception on Thursday, July 31st at 6 p.m., in the Public Library’s Large Conference Room.

Information and an application form (PDF) about submitting artwork is available at the Sweet Pea Festival web site. The entry fee is $20. Following are selected excerpts:

The Juried & Open Art Shows are open to all artists. Artists may only enter one piece of work. In an effort to allow greater participation in the shows, hanging artwork shall not exceed the size of 4 feet x 4 feet (48 inches x 48 inches). Only original artwork designed and executed within the last two years, and not previously shown in past juried shows, is eligible for the Juried Show participation. The Open Show is a non-juried and non-competitive exhibition. Artwork in any media is acceptable, but acceptance is also conditional upon examination for extreme fragility or size. Please keep in mind that artwork will be located in an area heavily frequented by the public. Artwork also must be finished and ready for professional hanging. If artwork requires special handling, it must be accompanied by the artist’s written instructions. All artwork must remain on display for the duration of the exhibition.

Delivery & Deadlines
Hand Delivered: Artwork must be hand delivered to the Bozeman Public Library, 626 East Main Street, Bozeman, on Monday, July 28th between 12 and 5 p.m. Application form and entry fee will be collected at that time, as well as the optional artist statment. If the artist is unable to hand deliver on July 28th, the work must be shipped to arrive by July 21, or special arrangements must be made with the Art Show Chair.
