Yes the Blue Heron Gallery will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this summer and we are hoping that all of you who have participated in any of the past exhibits at the gallery will be a part of this show. The exhibit does not have a specific theme other than honoring the muse, in whatever form that may have taken for you during the past decade.
This will be a special event for the gallery and the artists and it will also be my last exhibit to curate. There will be special opening on Friday, August 24th from 5 to 11 with music, dancing and poets reading as well.
As we are expecting many of the artists to show in this exhibit we are asking for only three works. The entry fee (reduced to $15) for this show will be due with three to five j-pegs of your submissions by July 15. Send the j-pegs to me at the address below. Make a check out to – “Blue Heron Muse Show” and mail it to the gallery. The works chosen for the show will be due by or before Monday, August 20th by noon, when I will hang the show. Please have all the work nicely framed, wired and most importantly labled with the title, media and price on the back.
POETS- you too are invited to participate by reading at the opening any three poems of your choice or a work that addresses the muse in your writing. Please let us know if you plan to read.
We will not be doing a catalog for this show but the exhibit will none-the-less be a very special milestone for all who have participated.
Incidentally you may see gallery history with many of the shows as recorded on our website and there are full color catalogs for most of the shows that include the poetry and images for these shows..
This time of year is also the annual fund-raising for the gallery, so we invite any new artists, art appreciators, or especially regional businesses to contribute to this worthy community entity and ensure its continuance.
If you have any specific questions please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 570-746-1187.
