The Cambria Center for the Arts (CCA) is pleased to call for artists for the Gallery’s next show Small Gems with featured artist Marcie Begleiter. Small Gems will be limited to eight-by-eight and twelve-by-twelve inch canvases. The show will open on Saturday, November 5, and run through December 31.
Small Gems was a popular format for CCA’s holiday shows in past years, and the Gallery is happy to revive it this year. Any two-dimensional medium that can be applied to a stretched canvas (unframed, finished on the edges) is acceptable for this show. All work must be original, with no part copied from other art or publications. All paintings and photographs must be signed. An artist may enter up to three canvases. For more information, please visit the Gallery website at: cambriaarts.org/call-artists/.
Create a masterpiece, wire it according to the Gallery’s specifications, and bring it in during the next exchange day on Tuesday, November 1, between 10:00 a.m. and noon. There is no need to submit online. There is no entry fee for canvases purchased at CCA. The cost of an eight-by-eight inch canvas is $5 and a twelve-by-twelve inch canvas is $7. Canvases are available for purchase during Gallery hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The standard $10 per entry will apply to paintings on artists’ own canvases.
Pricing for the public to purchase artwork for this show will be based on size: $60 for eight by eight-inch canvases and $90 for twelve by twelve-inch canvases. The commission kept by the Gallery will be smaller for this show at only 20 percent instead of the usual 30 percent. Artists may replace a sold painting and are encouraged to make extras. The exhibit will open online on Saturday, November 5, at 11:00 a.m. (cambriaarts.org). Please email the Gallery with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
