CASPIAN—The Arts Committee at the Iron County Museum here has announced the 40th annual Fine Arts Show will open Monday, July 30.
On the final two days, Friday and Saturday, Aug. 3 and 4, a “Starving Artist” sale will be held with added pieces of art available to sell.
Blanks to register for the show will be available at the museum desk, or information may be given to desk personnel over the telephone.
Blanks will also be available beginning this week at Central Arts and Gifts and the West Iron District Library in Iron River, the Crystal Falls Contemporary Center and the Crystal Falls District Community Library in Crystal Falls.
The week-long show limits exhibitors to display no more than three pieces of art, which should be brought to the museum as early as Wednesday, July 25
Hanging and arrangements will be made by the Museum art group.
Categories include oil, acrylic, watercolor and pastel media as well as pen, pencil or charcoal drawings, sketches, photography, sculpturing, wood carvings and basket making.
A printed entry form should be filed no later than July 20 so the committee can plan display space.
For the show itself, artists are restricted to showing art that has been done within the past year or art that has never been shown before.
All care possible is taken, and artists are encouraged to staff their own exhibit the last two days when many additional items may be brought in.
For the sale, artists may bring in the additional sales pieces on Thursday before the museum’s 10 a.m. opening.
Chairman for the event is Amy Brzoznowski, (906) 367-0017 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
She will be assisted by Program Director Betty Petroski and the Museum Artists Club members.
