Lincoln County Historical Society announces maritime-related art exhibition at opening of the Pacific Maritime & and Heritage Center next summer.
MICHAEL GIBBONS AND HISTORICAL SOCIETY ANNOUNCE JURIED ART EXHIBITION
FOR PACIFIC MARITIME & HERITAGE CENTER
Michael Gibbons, artist and curator of the Yaquina River Museum of Art, will join with the Lincoln County Historical Society to conduct a juried exhibition for maritime-related art. Jury selections will be displayed in an exhibit in the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center when it opens early summer 2013.
The juried art exhibit will be just one section of the opening exhibit, “Ship to Shore: Objects of a Maritime Community,” which will feature a diversity of stories and objects from the local community ranging from commercial fishing gear to art.
Any medium and all artists are welcome to participate in the juried exhibition, but the theme must be maritime-related and focus on the Central Oregon Coast. Art remains the property of the artist, but the artist must be willing to lend the piece to the Society for a year-long exhibit at the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center. In the interest of long-term preservation of our regional history in art, artists may donate or arrange for the gift of accepted art for the Society’s collection and use in future exhibits. Artist submitting the work must hold all rights to the works. Up to six works may be submitted for consideration.
Digital images of the art should be submitted as jpegs on CD with a description of the work and the media used. Deadline for submissions is March 1, 2013. Disks should be sent or delivered to Michael Gibbons at 140 NE Alder, Toledo or to the Burrows House Museum, 545 SW Ninth, Newport. For more information, call 541-265-7509 or 541-336-2797 or e-mail email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
