Art Of Music – Call For Artists

Art Of Music – Call For Artists

Beauty Art Gallery announces a call for artists, 18 years old and above, to submit artwork to the Art of Music juried exhibition.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 04-15-2017

Most of us love music, musicians, musical themes, instruments, social experiences of music and so forth. What happens when visual artists depict how music feels or what it means to them? Can your art express the nuances of music? Humankind has a long history of artistic expression. Archaeologists trace these activities to the Paleolithic era with cave paintings and bone flutes dating to about 38,000 BCE. That is a long history and perhaps explains our compulsion to create and admire these forms. The Art of Music exhibition seeks the visual expression of actions, feelings, and moods inspired by music, lyrics, and musical performances.

Entry Fee is $30 for 2 pieces. A third piece may be entered for additional $10. Exhibition juror is Nathan Durnin.

Awards of cash, merchandise, and publicity have a cumulative cash value of more than $1,000. Each award also includes a merit certificate.

  • First Award is $250
  • Second Award is $150 each
  • 3rd Award is $75
  • Juror’s Award for Excellence is $100
  • People’s Choice Award is $50
  • Delaware County Symphony 2017-2018 Season Theme Image Award
  • Honorable Mentions: $50 gift certificate

One work will be selected by DCS’ Brochure Committee for use (via digital format) in a year-long promotion for DCS’ next season. The work and artist will be recognized in a press release and photo, on the website, and in brochures. The artist will also receive a pair of tickets to the season.
