Great Bay Art Show

Art of Great Bay April 6-8, 2018


Dear Artist,

We cordially invite you to show and sell your work at our 14th annual Art of Great Bay show. Our theme this year will be Art Inspired by the New England Coast, to include depictions of the region’s culture, architecture, agriculture, and activities.

The event will be held in the Hugh Gregg Coastal Conservation Center at the Great Bay Discovery Center in Greenland, N.H. A public opening reception will be held Friday evening, April 6th, and the show will continue Saturday and Sunday, April 7th and 8th . Artists do not need to be in attendance during the show but are encouraged to attend the Friday night reception; however, artists selling tabletop works will need to have representation the entire weekend.

Hanging works for sale will generally be limited to the hanging area of one display panel, for a total size not to exceed 30 inches by 48 inches. Only original pieces will be considered for the show. In addition, we will be including collections of fine crafts such as sculpture, glass, pottery, fabric, and jewelry.

If you wish to have your works considered for the show, please send two representational digital photos of your art (art.show@greatbaystewards.org) by February 7th (it would be appreciated if files could be named with your last name or work title).  Please also include the medium(s) in which you work.  If the committee accepts your work we will send you a registration form to be returned with a $25 fee by February 28th . You will receive 70 percent of the proceeds from your sales, with 30 percent going to the Great Bay Stewards to support the programs at the Discovery Center. We will also be grateful for a donation of a piece of your artwork for a raffle during the show.

Sincerely,

Allison Knab, co-chair
