Loudoun County, Va. (September 29, 2014) – The Loudoun County Art Advisory Committee has issued a call for artists who live or work in Loudoun for “Blue Ridge Wildlife,” an exhibition featuring works of art inspired by local wildlife. The artwork will be on view in “Gallery One,” on the first floor of the Loudoun County Government Center from October 2, 2014, through January 5, 2015.
Works in any two-dimensional media, including drawings, paintings, photographs, prints (i.e. mono-prints, etchings, woodblock prints), fiber art, mixed media, and low relief sculpture, will be accepted. Each artist may submit one entry. As space limitations restrict the total number of works, artists’ pieces will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Artwork is limited to a finished size of 36 x 36 inches, must be ready for display, framed with hanging wire securely attached to eye-hooks on the back of each piece (no saw- tooth hangers), and must be appropriate for exhibition in public locations. The Art Advisory Committee reserves the right to exhibit work at its discretion.
Artists should notify the committee liaison, Heather Stinson, of their intent to submit a piece to the exhibit by sending a completed Art Exhibit Entry Form by email to Heather.Stinson@loudoun.gov. Artwork will be accepted at Gallery One in the Loudoun County Government Center, 1 Harrison Street, S.E., in Leesburg on Wednesday, October 1, 2014, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. For additional information, contact Heather Stinson at 703-777-0208 or by email.
