In celebration of the 75th anniversary of Shades State Park, the Carnegie Museum of Montgomery County is currently looking for artwork that highlights the landscape, use, or history of the park.
The exhibition will feature all forms of art celebrating the park. The museum welcomes entries of all types, including print or digital photography and other digital art, paintings, three-dimensional art, as well as informal views of people or events in the park. Both professional and amateur artists are welcome to submit work for consideration. The works will be returned to the artist at the end of the exhibition.
Artists should send images of their art to Janna Bennett at [email protected] or call 765-362-4622 to schedule an appointment to show the work in a Zoom meeting or to take other arrangements to see the potential art work. The deadline for submission is July 15. A decision will be made by the curatorial team by July 20 on the selection of works to be included.
The exhibition will be presented from August 17 to October 29. Alongside this exhibit, the museum hopes to engage a local artist to guide attendees through a wine and paint event. Follow the museum’s social media and newsletter for more information.
The Carnegie Museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday through July 31. In August, it will return to our normal business hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Admission to the museum is free and the building is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.
