Call for artists: The Art of Disguise

GLOVERSVILLE — Help the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts celebrate the fall season with a little mystery and intrigue, according to a news release. The center is seeking submissions for its 2017 fall art show, “The Art of Disguise.” Pieces should consist of 2-D and 3-D works that embrace the theme of disguise. Artists who are masters of this theme are welcome — as well as those who have simply found a subtle way to camouflage hidden images.

In addition to the regular gallery submissions, the Nigra Arts Center is also seeking 3-D mask submissions to fully embrace the season. There will be a bonus award for the most creative mask.

The show will run from Oct. 5, to Jan. 10. The deadline for submission is Sept. 10. Works of all media are welcome. Pieces should be submitted via the website www.OnlineJuriedShows.com

The show is not a juried show, but the website allows for ease of submission and selection by the curator.

Artists may submit up to three works with an entry fee of $25 and $10 per additional entry, for a total of five pieces maximum.

Members of the Nigra Arts Center may submit three works with an entry fee of $15 and $7 per additional entry, for a total of five pieces maximum.

Through the donations of supporters, the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts is able to offer $450 in awards and prizes to outstanding submissions.

Notification of selection will be sent by email by Sept. 13. Selected works can be delivered to the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts on Sept. 27, 28 and 29, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., or Sept. 30, 9 a.m. to noon.

Works that are shipped to the Nigra Arts Center should be received by Sept. 30. The mailing address for the center is 2736 Route 30, Gloversville, NY 12078.

The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts will hold an opening reception and awards ceremony on Oct. 19, 6 to 8 p.m. All are welcome to attend, see the exhibition and meet some of the featured artists.
