CAMBRIDGE - It is time to prepare for the Annual Members’ Show and Sale at Dorchester Center for the Arts.
The show is open to all Dorchester Center for the Arts members and will be held from June 3-25. Anyone who would like to participate but is unsure about the status of their membership is welcome to call the center to verify. If you are not a member, now is an exciting time to join!
Entries must be original works of the exhibiting artist. “Original” means never having occurred or existed before, and invented or created by the exhibitor. No copies of art or photographs by other persons may be exhibited.
Work shown in a previous DCA Members’ Show may not be entered again. Exhibiting artists are welcome to sell their work during the show. DCA will retain a commission of 35% of the selling price of each item sold. The artist will be paid approximately one month after the end of the show.
Four entries will be accepted per person. Entry forms are available at DCA or online at dorchesterarts.org. Forms should be completed and returned to the Dorchester Center for the Arts along with the artwork on Wednesday, May 25, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursday, May 26, noon-8 p.m., or Friday, May 27, 11a.m.-5p.m. Work should be clearly labeled with the artist’s name, the title of the piece, the medium and the price.
Awards will be presented for Best in Show, Best Depiction of Dorchester County, Most Creative, and People’s Choice during the Second Saturday Artists’ Reception on June 11, 5-7 p.m. The reception is free, featuring refreshments and live music, and the public is welcome to attend.
