Impressions 2015, the Icehouse Gallery's annual juried exhibition, is open to visual artists working or living in Kentucky and contiguous states. Work must be original and must have been completed during the last three years. Membership in the Mayfield/Graves County Art Guild is not required to submit works in the exhibition. Juror for this year’s exhibition is Diane Shaw, Professor of Art at the University of Tennessee – Martin.
A $200 cash award will be given for the artwork selected as “Best of Show.” Cash awards of $100 for first place and $50 for second place will be given in each of the five categories: Painting, Photography, Drawing, Mixed Media including fiber arts, and Sculpture. Honorable mention awards may be given at the discretion of the juror.
Artwork will be accepted at the gallery from Saturday, November 7 through Friday, November 13. All two-dimensional work must be substantially framed, with wire attached for hanging. Three-dimensional work must be freestanding, supplied with its own stand, or be capable of being displayed on the gallery’s pedestals. Consult the gallery prior to submitting works that cannot be displayed in the customary manner or if the artwork you intend to submit is unusually large or heavy; space limitations may prohibit the display of very large works. A non-refundable fee of $15.00 for up to two works, and $7.00 for each additional work beyond two, is due at the time of submission. Payment may be made by cash, check or credit card. An entry tag must be properly filled out and secured to the back of each entry. Entry tags are available below or at the gallery. Artists must indicate the category in which each work is to compete. Not all work submitted to the exhibition will be displayed. All works will be available for sale except entries marked "NFS" (not for sale). The gallery will retain 30% of the purchase price of artwork sold during the exhibition so artists must price their work accordingly.
The Icehouse Gallery will be closed on Saturday, November 14 while the exhibition is being juried. The Gift Shop and Workroom will be open from Tuesday, November 17 through Friday afternoon, November 20. The Impressions 2015 exhibition will open at 6pm on Friday, November 20 with a reception that will be held from 6 until 8pm. Awards will be presented during the reception and artists will be asked to retrieve work that was not accepted into the exhibition. The drawing for this year’s raffle quilt will also be conducted at the reception and the winning name will be posted on the gallery’s facebook page at “Ice House Gallery.” The exhibition will conclude on December 19 and artists will need to pick up works from December 22 through 30. The Icehouse is closed during the month of January for grant writing and renovations so artwork cannot be picked up after December 30.
