Dear Members of the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center,
The Cuyahoga Valley Art Center (CVAC) would like to cordially invite you to enter our 2018 Member Exhibition.
This exhibition is scheduled to be on display in the gallery from May 29th – June 21st. Holding a yearly member exhibition has been a tradition at CVAC for over 30 years. This year we have elevated the structure of this exhibition to our members’ advantage. Our member exhibition will be arranged by media in 7 distinct categories for submission: Watercolor Media, Water Based Media, Oil Based Media, Dry Media, Mixed Media, 3-Dimensional Media & Photographic Media. We offer a plethora of classes here at CVAC covering everything from watercolor, acrylic and oil painting to drawing, ceramics and woodcarving. We wanted to make sure that our Member Exhibition highlights the different art medias that our members excel in.
In previous years, the exhibition was not juried and only one first, second and third-place winner were selected. This juried exhibition will have 7 “Best of” Category winners, 7 People’s Choice Category winners and up to 18 honorable mentions. The juror will select a “Best of” Category winner and up to three honorable mentions for each category. A People’s Choice Selection process, starting May 29th, shall dictate a People’s Choice category winner for each category, to be announced at the end of the artist reception on June 15th.
The “Best of” Category winners shall receive a cash prize, to be recognized and distributed at the 2018 Member Exhibition reception on June 15th from 5:30-7:00. This reception is free to the public and correlates with the Falls Downtown Fridays BeBop on the Block event. Collide: Cuyahoga Falls, will host a live poetry reading following this reception on the gallery level at CVAC.
This exhibition is a favorite of CVAC and our local community. We look forward to your continued patronage and participation. Entry information is enclosed. PLEASE NOTE: Entries & fees will be accepted no later than MAY 26th. Early arrivals are accepted.
