Call to Local Artists — Deadline June 19

Meeting House Arts is hosting a community art show to celebrate the wide range of creativity in our community. Called “Off the Beaten Path,” it is being held in coordination with, but adjacent to, the Waterbury Arts Fest at the White Meeting House on North Main Street.

We are especially looking for artists and craftspeople in the area who may not show their work regularly, but would enjoy the chance to share it with the community. Consider applying if you work in any media, from paint, pottery and photography to textiles, wood, assemblage, drawings, jewelry… We hope to show 1 or 2 pieces of each artist’s work. Work may be available for sale, or not, as preferred by the artist. The exhibit will be up for most of July and there will be an open house celebration on the same day as the Waterbury Arts Fest, July 11.

Application is by email and is open to residents of Waterbury, Duxbury, Middlesex and Moretown. Your application consists of digital images of up to two pieces of your work for the exhibit along with title, media and dimensions, as well as contact information (including full name, phone and address). Send applications to BOTH torreycsmith@yahoo.com AND plmckibben@comcast.net by the deadline of June 19th.

Work will need to be dropped off on Tuesday, June 30th at the White Meeting House and will be available to pick up again the week of July 27th. It must be display ready – that is, strung with wire or other hanging or stabilizing material as necessary. We will also have horizontal surfaces for displaying 3-D work.

Meeting House Arts is a collaborative project hosted by the White Meeting House. Its goal is to provide more opportunities for local artists to show their work, and for local residents to enjoy more art. Questions can be addressed to Torrey at 244-8581 or torreycsmith@yahoo.com, or find more information at http://www.waterburyucc.com/meetinghouse-arts.html.
