The School of Art's Downtown Gallery Presents Opportunity for Artists to Sell WorkPosted Mar. 2, 2012
The School of Art's Downtown Gallery at Kent State University will host the "Spring Sale" from March 7-24, 2012 in place of the cancelled "12th Annual Cup Show." The "Spring Sale" is free and open to national, regional and local artists and Kent State students, faculty and staff. A reception will be from 5-7 p.m. on Weds., March 7.
Artists should drop off their work at the Downtown Gallery between noon and 5 p.m. on Friday, March 2 or between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Sat., March 3. Application forms can be found at the School of Art or the Downtown Gallery. Artists are encouraged to enter ceramics, jewelry, glass, textiles, prints, photos, wood and works on paper.
The pieces will be available for purchases in the retail space of the Downtown Gallery. This sale allows admirers the opportunity to purchase unique artwork as well as support the local art community. The School of Art Galleries will benefit from 40 percent of all sales.
NOTE: The Cup Show, an annual contest and sale of imaginative cups made of all sorts of materials, was scheduled from Feb. 22 to March 17 with a reception from 5-7 p.m. on Thurs., March 1 and cancelled due to lack of entries.
The mission of the School of Art's Downtown Gallery is to provide a public venue for the diverse forms of visual art produced by the students, faculty, and alumni of the School of Art, to provide a place where the School of Art and the community may interact and to highlight excellent regional and national artists whose work educates and stimulates our students and our community at large. The Downtown Gallery is also the home of The Artist Network of Kent (TANK), a local arts group. For more information on the School of Art's Downtown Gallery, please call 330-676-1549.
