2000-08-29 until 2000-10-07
Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery
Keene, NH, USA United States of America

Artists living within 30 miles of Keene are invited to enter the 2000 Biennial Regional Juror's Choice Competition at the Thorne-Sagendorph Art Gallery. The exhibition, open to artists working in all media, will be displayed Saturday, Oct. 28, to Sunday, Dec. 10. The juror will be Marilyn Hoffman, former director of the Currier Gallery of Art in Manchester, N.H.

This exhibit showcases the many talented artists who live in this area, says Maureen Ahern, director of the Thorne Gallery, located on the Keene State College campus. Two years ago 436 entries were received from 165 artists, with the juror choosing 83 works for display.

Because of the large number of submissions, the last competition was opened to other venues on campus. Again this year, for no additional fee, artists will have the option of entering non-accepted work into the juried Campus Choice Exhibit to be displayed at Keene State's Young Student Center and Redfern Arts Center between Oct. 28 and Dec. 10.

Artists are eligible to submit works in any medium if they live within a 30-mile radius of Keene or are members of the Friends of the Thorne. Artists may submit up to two works for one non-refundable entry fee of $15. Friends of the Thorne will be charged $10 for up to two works. Checks should be made payable to the Thorne Art Gallery. The gallery does not accept credit cards.

Artists may submit work in any medium completed within the past two years. Works done under the supervision of an instructor are not eligible. Do not submit slides. All art must be gallery-ready, either framed and ready for hanging, or easily displayed on a base or pedestal. Glass frames with clips will not be accepted. Any object deemed unsuitable for safe display will not be accepted for jury review.

Entries for the competition must be hand-delivered to the Thorne Gallery between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 6 and 7. For information about the call for entries for the Biennial Regional Juror's Choice Competition, call 603-358-2720.

In addition to selecting works to be shown in the Biennial Regional Juror's Choice Exhibition, Hoffman will select Best in Show, Second Place, Third Place, and five Honorable Mention awards. These artists will receive cash awards. In addition, gallery visitors will select a People's Choice Commendation, with a $100 cash award, to be announced Friday, Dec. 1.

The gallery will mail notification of the selections to artists upon completion of the jury process. Accepted works will be placed on display and may not be removed until the end of the show. All artwork accepted for the show will be insured, for a reasonable amount, while in custody of the gallery until the pickup date, Friday, Dec. 15, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Works not accepted for the Biennial Regional Juror's Choice and Campus Choice exhibits must be picked up between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 13 and 14. Non-accepted entries will be insured only through those pickup dates. Works entered into the Campus Choice Exhibit will not be insured.

Artists are encouraged to make entries available for purchase, although not-for-sale works will be accepted. A 30-percent sales commission will be taken by the gallery on any object sold as a result of the show. Work sold must remain on exhibit through Sunday, Dec. 10, the last day of the show.
