Central Virginia Watercolor Guild

Combining Camaraderie with Creativity

Louisa Arts Center

CWVG Show, May 27-July 29, 2016

Special Exhibits Chair, Sue Stover, writes:

“I am glad to announce this wonderful opportunity to display the work of members of CVWG in a very delightful venue, the Louisa Art Center Purcell Gallery.  This is truly a wonderful gallery to hang in and I urge all of you to “get your paint on” and send up to four or five entries for this show.  Depending on judge selections and the total number of entries, not all pictures may be chosen to hang.  The Gallery holds a wonderful reception on the last Friday of the opening month.

This is a FREE show for members of CVWG only.  It will be a juried show and pictures will be chosen by a judge selected by the Louisa Art Center for inclusion into the show.  Each CVWG member can enter up to five pictures for judging/entry.  Each applicant will be responsible for delivery and pick up of their art to the Louisa Art Center.

Entries can be any water based media as well as some 3-D art such as pottery pieces.  The judges will select from all the entries the number of pictures they need to hang and try and assure that everyone gets at least one piece juried into the show. Artwork is not required to be for sale, but if for sale and is sold, the Center will retain a 30% commission.

Click here for the Entry Form.  I know some of you do not have a computer/printer so a limited number of hard copy forms will be available at the CVWG monthly meetings.  Each painting entered needs to be listed on this entry form and name of artist, title of work, contact phone number, and sale price/NFS value should be attached to the back of EACH painting.  Further information will be sent out as it is received.

Entry requires the use of drop box and electronic sending of images. (See instructions below). Anyone requiring assistance can contact Julia Kindred who has kindly offered her help.

Please email a copy of your entry form, or at the very least, the following information on your entries to susanjanestover@gmail.com and jekindred@comcast.net when you have it:

Your name:
Picture Title:
Sale Price:
Contact phone:

This will enable us to keep track of pictures being entered into the show. If you have questions, contact, Sue Stover, 434-985-4995 or susanjanestover@gmail.com.”
