The Springfield-Branson National Airport has become known for its Ozarks-inspired décor: riverbed carpets, swimming fish, and spacious glass to highlight the Midwest blue skies. With this theme in mind, The Sky Gallery invites artists to create pieces inspired by the Ozark’s splendor.
Springfield Regional Arts Council artists are encouraged to submit a 2D work of art of any media to be on display at The Sky Gallery from August 13, 2019 through November 13, 2019. Pieces selected will be a part of the Ozzie Awards Art Gala, held on Saturday, October 19th.
Submit up to 5 digital images (JPGs) of actual works you hope to have selected for exhibition. Name each JPG with your first initial, last name and piece title (example: JSmithTitle.jpg). Send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight, July 26th, 2019.
Because of the nature of the exhibition space in which the show will take place, submissions must meet the following restrictions:
- Artwork (including dimension of frame) is recommended to be at least 36” on one side.
- Hanging the art requires that the piece be wired with D-Rings, at least 10” from the top.
- Works must be two-dimensional (no three-dimensional work)
Artists will be selected by an anonymous jurying process. All submissions will be notified of acceptance or rejection by Monday, August 5th, 2019. The show will be hung Tuesday, August 13th. All participating artists are expected to drop off their work at this time and assist in the hanging process if available.
