CALL FOR ARTISTS
The Coburn Gallery of Ashland University will host an Ashland Community Arts League (AshCAL) juried membership exhibition May 19 through July 23. The exhibition is open to all artists who are current members of AshCAL. Entry fee is $25 for up to four entries. Newly joining members must provide contact information and pay annual membership dues ($35) at the time of entry. Life membership is also available for $100, and includes the entry fee for the 2023 exhibition. Works in any media, traditional or experimental, qualify.
All works must be original to the entering artist and not completed under instruction or as part of a class or workshop. No kits or commercial patterns will be accepted. Work may not have been previously exhibited at Coburn Gallery. Wall hanging pieces must be wired and completely ready to exhibit. All pieces must be hand delivered to Coburn Gallery, 331 College Ave, Ashland, on Tuesday, May 9, between 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
The guest juror for the exhibition is Keith Dull. Dull was born in Fort Wayne, Ind., in 1968. He received a BFA in printmaking and painting from Indiana University, Herron School of Art in 1992, and an MFA in printmaking from the University of South Dakota in 1995. From 1998-99, he worked as adjunct faculty and print shop technician for Herron School of Art, and in 1999, accepted a teaching position at Ashland University where he is a professor of art, teaching printmaking, painting, illustration, drawing and 2D Design. His imagery reflects an interest in history, and the historical use of print as guides, manuals and magic talismans.
The Coburn Art Gallery will host an opening reception on May 19 from 5-6:30 p.m. Detailed entry forms and prospectus may be obtained by email at email@example.com.
