First Lutheran is proud to announce our second art show. Our first show in Spring 2017 featured a variety of works by artists from around the Central Texas area. This second show will be an event included in the 2017 Mermaid Society SMTX “SPLASH”. SMTX Mermaid SPLASH is an annual city-wide, multi-event festival, celebrating our city’s arts, culture and our most precious resource, the San Marcos River.
What: A juried exhibition of 2D works.
When: Exhibition will be up for the Mermaid SPLASH from September 2-17, 2017
Where: First Lutheran Church, 130 W. Holland Street, San Marcos, TX
First Lutheran Church of San Marcos (FLC) is accepting entries for an art exhibit to be displayed during the month of September 2017. The theme is “Children At Play”. Wide latitude for creativity interpreting the theme is encouraged. We seek artworks that reflect the joy and whimsical nature of children, as well as those of us who are children at heart. The terms “Children” and “Play” should be interpreted in an expansive way as all creatures have a child inside.
ENTRY RULES: Open to all Central Texas artists; 2D works, ready to hang, and weighing no more than 15 lbs. All works, including non-denominational and non-sectarian, that address the exhibition theme of “Children At Play” will be considered. Submissions will be juried to accommodate the space available as well as suitability for the setting and theme. All entry forms and digital images must be received by August 10, 2017 to be considered. Artists will be notified by August 15th of the Jurors’ selections. All works selected for the exhibition are to be hand-delivered the week of August 20-27 between 10 am and 5 pm, or by arrangement with the church office. Works exhibited must be collected by arrangement with the church office after September 20th. We will not accept shipped works. FLC reserves the right to publish digital images of exhibited works in FLC documents, websites, and social media in support of our arts ministry vision. Insurance will not be provided on work exhibited. Every reasonable precaution will be taken in the handling, exhibition, and security of the works. Artists may want to obtain their own insurance coverage.
Submission Process: Start the process by online submission of the entry form at http://flcsm.org/?page_id=355. After subigital images for jurying must be emailed to email@example.com. An artist statement (emailed with the digital image) is welcomed and encouraged, but not required.
Show Dates: The exhibit will be open during normal church office operating hours for the month of September. We are partnering with Mermaid Society SMTX as part of their SPLASH event that runs September 2-17th. We will be planning an opening event or other artist celebration during the SPLASH, which is currently TBA.
Sales: Any inquiries regarding sales will be referred directly to the artist. Prices will not be displayed with the piece; Instead, a single sign will be posted in the exhibit area announcing the availability of artist contact information for sales inquiry. FLC will not take any commissions and will not be party to sales in any way. We only ask that all art remain in the exhibit for the duration of the show.
