Darien Arts Center accepting entries for Art Show and Sale
The Darien Arts Center is encouraging artists of all ages to participate in its 57th Darien Art Show and Sale being held May 30, through June 6 in the DAC Weatherstone Studio at 2 Renshaw Road, behind town hall.
The show, which offers cash awards and a solo exhibit to the winner of Best in Show, is open to DAC students and children and adults who live or work in Darien. Nonresidents may enter the show with a donation to the organization. The show will be open for public viewing every day from May 30 through June 6, from noon to 5 p.m. Prizes will be given in many categories at an opening night reception from 7 to 9 p.m. on May 29, where the Ginny Wright Scholarship will also be awarded.
Entries are welcome in a variety of media, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, drawing/pastel, mixed media/printmaking, sculpture, color photography and black & white photography. Artists can register at darienarts.org from through 7 p.m. on May 26 and can drop off entries on May 26 from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m.
Artists may enter up to two pieces of artwork, with an entry fee of $20 per submission for adults and $10 per piece for children. Adults submitting two pieces must designate at least one for sale. A 25% commission on each sale will benefit the DAC. All pieces must be ready to hang with a wire on the back, or, if needed, the DAC will provide assistance with wiring at the drop-off site for a small fee.
