The Icehouse Gallery is issuing a Call to Artists for our annual Community Arts Show that will open on Thursday, July 28 and will continue through Friday, September 2. This is an opportunity for everyone to exhibit work in the Gallery, regardless of age or level of experience. Both visual and literary works will be accepted. We will display as much artwork as the Gallery will hold. Keep in mind that we’re a family-friendly gallery, however, and that works may be rejected if they are deemed obscene or offensive to our viewers. There is no entry fee and you need not be a member of the Art Guild to participate. Artwork may be priced for sale; the Gallery retains 30% of all sales so price your work accordingly. Works will be received from Thursday, July 21 until Saturday, July 23. Each artist may bring up to two works and they must be framed and must have a wire or clip on the back and be ready for hanging. At the conclusion of the show, artwork must be picked up between Saturday, September 3 and Thursday, September 7. A reception for the exhibition will be held 6-8pm on Friday, July 29. Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited.
