About the Show:
This is an open-themed show to celebrate the re-opening of events and activities! Come treasure the creativity and expressions of our local Blackstone Valley area artists!
Thank you so much to ValleyCAST and Open Sky for providing this opportunity to the BVAA.
Entering the Show
The entry fee for the Whitin Mill show, open to all styles of artwork, is $8/piece or $20 for three. You can submit up to three pieces. The theme is wide open. You can submit a portrait, landscape, still life, abstract, seascape, you name it. Your imagination is the limit. Because this show is judged, you cannot enter anything which has previously been submitted for a BVAA judged show. It’s fine to enter works which have been in non-judged BVAA shows.
All artwork must be family friendly. Any hanging artwork MUST BE properly wired for hanging. This gallery does have pedestals for sculpture-style artwork. If you are new to preparing hanging artwork for shows, read our page on How to Mat and Frame Artwork. Please also check out our Show Terms and Conditions
To submit your entries use our BVAA Online Submission Form. The deadline to submit the online form is midnight on Sunday, June 13th, 2021 at midnight. Work should be dropped off during the week of Monday, June 14th to Friday, June 18th, 2021, between 9am to 4pm. All work which is brought in will be hung (as long as it is properly wired and is family-friendly).
We will have a sign-in sheet. Please make sure you sign your art in so we can track what is in the gallery.
The show will be hung by Cristi at Open Sky once all art has been dropped off. Please label the back of every piece so she knows which labels go with which objects.
This show awards cash prizes based on the number of entries received. The judge for this show is to be determined.
Due to lingering pandemic issues, we will not be having an opening reception. However, ValleyCAST is planning to have their summer concert series in the plaza, and the gallery will be open during those concert events. So if you’d like people to hang out and talk with, be sure to attend one of the summer concert shows!
This building will be open Mondays through Fridays 9am-4pm. It’s wise to call ahead just in case.
Pick up for this show is during the week of Monday, August 23rd to Friday, August 27th, 2021, between 9am to 4pm.
If you aren’t able to make that, contact us for other arrangements. Someone can probably pick up your art for you and then arrange to meet another time.
