Juried Art Program
Artists who are interested in exhibiting at the Harrison Public Library, Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY for approximately one month during 2022 are invited to submit samples of their artwork for review by a Juried Art Committee sponsored by the Harrison Council for the Arts.
To be considered as an exhibitor, your work must be reviewed and approved by our distinguished jury formed by invitation from the Harrison Council for the Arts.
Twelve artists will be awarded one person shows by our jury, with three alternate artists chosen as well, should unexpected circumstances prevent artists from exhibiting according to schedule. Group shows (2, 3 or 4 persons) will also be considered provided these artists register and submit work together. Please note for group shows, all entrants must be chosen.
If you are interested in competing for one of these shows, please bring samples to the Community Room, Harrison Public Library, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY on Friday, September 24, 2021 between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. All artists must pick up their samples on Saturday, September 25, 2021 between 12:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Two-dimensional art only is eligible and the samples must be in the form of two different pieces of the actual art (preferably framed), 12 copies of the art either in the form of 35mm slides, photos, prints or on computer disk (all different/representational of the artist’s work), and a resume.
Please review the Art Exhibit Guidelines and Agreement. If you choose to participate, you will be notified of the jury’s decision by mail no later than November 1, 2021. If awarded exhibit time, you will be asked to call Kenji Kaneshiro at the Library and provide him with three choices for a monthly exhibit in 2022 (first come-first served). If Kenji is not available when you call, please leave a voicemail message with your three choices 914/835-0324. Kenji will confirm your exhibit date by mail and at that time you will be asked to sign the Art Exhibit Agreement which must be returned immediately. The applicable fee is due three months prior to the exhibit date (see the Guidelines).
If you have any questions, please call or email Kenji Kaneshiro at the Library 914/835-0324 firstname.lastname@example.org (alternate contact is Connie Perrotta, Harrison Council for the Arts Juried Art Program volunteer at 914/315-1922 email@example.com).
