Want to see your artwork in the Scholes Library's new pop-up gallery? Here's your chance! We're soliciting entries for a juried art exhibit based around the theme of "Harry Potter's World." We will be accepting submissions at the Scholes Library from August 24th through October 1st.
"Harry Potter's World" could mean many different things! You could create a work of art that literally depicts something from the world of Harry Potter--a character, a place, an event--or you could explore one of the many themes present in the books. A few suggestions include topics like "invisibility," "transfiguration/metamorphosis," "immortality," "items of power," and of course many others!
Rules and Guidelines:
We will accept both two dimensional and three dimensional artworks. The maximum size is 30 inches in any direction. Artwork must be submitted ready for hanging or display. Entrants must collect their artworks promptly upon being contacted if they have not been accepted as part of the exhibit, or after the exhibit closes. Participating artists are welcome to arrange the sale of their works individually if desired once the exhibit has closed, but they will not be sold through the Scholes Library.
Submitting Your Work: Entrants must submit their work and a completed submission form (see the Submission Form link, above) at the Circulation Desk in the Scholes Library by the October 1st deadline.
Please bring your work in during regular business hours (9-5 Monday-Friday) on weekdays only. If you have any questions about the submission process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submission deadline: October 1st
Exhibit opening: October 8th
Submitted artworks will be evaluated for inclusion by a panel of studio artists and art historians. The artworks will be numbered rather than named, allowing the judges to assess them separately from their creators.
