The Sippican Lands Trust (SLT) and the Marion Art Center are partnering to sponsor an exhibition by local artists to highlight the many scenic sites that comprise the Lands Trust’s forests and marshes. This is one of several initiatives undertaken by the SLT to encourage visitation and enjoyment of the properties protected by the Trust.
Local artists are invited to submit up to three works, in any media, for a non-juried exhibition to be held at the Marion Art Center, October 5-November 10. All submitted works must depict scenes of or from SLT properties. The Marion Art Center will receive a 30% commission on the sale of each piece.
Trail maps of the Lands Trust properties are available at the SLT offices, 350 Front Street, Marion (next to Uncle Jon’s) or on-line at www.sippicanlandstrust.org. Walking tours of SLT properties will be conducted for interested artists in June, July and August (dates to be determined). Complete Registration Packets are also available at the Marion Art Center at 80 Pleasant Street in Marion.
Registration by September 1 is required. Artists wishing to exhibit should submit original pieces (no more than 3), matted and framed with title, medium and price. Sculpture should be presented exhibition ready. All pieces must be for sale and must be originals and have been executed within the last 3 years. All submitted works must depict scenes of or from SLT properties and the location must identified. All paintings and photographs must be framed, preferably matted (in white or neutrals) and ready to hang (i.e., secured with heavy picture wire and wrapped in tape, affixed to hooks that have been secured to the frame).
Dates for dropping pieces at the Marion Art Center are Tuesday, October 2 and Wednesday October 3 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
