The Springfield Regional Arts Council and Springfield-Branson National Airport are now accepting submissions for their next Sky Gallery show: "Far Above the Stars"! This exhibition is asking artists to look up to the sky! The SRAC’s Ozzie Awards will be held at the airport in October with a “Fly Me to the Moon” theme and would like the artworks to be inspired by the awe and wonder of the world above us.
Submit up to 5 digital images (JPGs) of actual works you hope to have selected for the exhibition. Name each JPG with your first initial, last name, and piece title (example: JSmithTitle.jpg). Please include dimensions, media, size, frame type if applicable, and retail pricing (including 25% SRAC commission) in your email. Send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight, Friday, August 11th, 2023.
Work that has previously been displayed at Sky Gallery will not be accepted.
Artists will be selected by an anonymous jurying process. All submissions will be notified of acceptance or rejection by Saturday, August 19th. All participating artists are expected to drop off their work between 9am-12pm Friday, August 25th. For more information regarding the Sky Gallery, call Claire Utley at (417) 862-2787 or email her at email@example.com.
