All artists in the Susquehanna Valley are invited to participate in the annual judged Susquehanna Art Society Art Show. Membership in the society is not a requirement. Last year's entries totalled nearly 200.
There will be three ability level classifications - advanced, intermediate and beginner. There also is a student-level classification (age 17 and younger).
Within each level, the media categories are Painting (transparent), Painting (opaque) and Other (graphics, photography, sculpture, mixed media).
First, second and honorable mention awards will be made to each level category represented. A popular choice award, determined by viewer's votes, will be awarded at the end of the show. Monetary awards in all categories represented will be made at the artist's reception, which will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. July 5.
The artwork will be on display until July 14 at the Degenstein Library Community Room, 40 South Fifth St. Sunbury, (across the street from the YMCA Art Center).
The artwork will be judged by Ann Piper, a resident of Selinsgrove. Piper holds a bachelor of fine arts degree from Maryland Institute College of Art and a master of fine arts degree from New Mexico State University. She is currently the coordinator of studio arts-assistant professor of drawing and painting at Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove. Piper recently participated in the Five-Artist Invitational Exhibit at the Art Association of Harrisburg.
The entrance fee for members and students is $5 per item, with a limit of three pieces. Non-members entry fee is $10 per item, with a limit of three pieces.
Works to be hung must be dry, suitably framed - with no brackets or exposed glass edges - with wires and must be ready for display. The artworks may not measure more than 60 inches in any direction. Pedestals or other suitable bases or methods for displaying free-standing works must be supplied by the artist. Decisions of appropriateness will be made at the discretion of the committee.
Artwork will be accepted from 4 to 8 p.m. June 28, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 29 and from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Degenstein Library Community Room.
