The Council, in operation since 1987, presents art classes and exhibitions at its location at 81 North Main Street in Chambersburg.
“We are looking forward to presenting Miniature Art 2017 in our new North Main Street location,” said the Council’s Gallery Coordinator Anne Finucane. “In 2016 we received over 350 miniature works of art created by 118 artists from 21 states, and we expect at least that many again this year!” All the works in the show are originals: oil, watercolor and acrylic paintings, drawings, hand-pulled prints and sculpture, many by nationally known artists.
The deadline for entries in “Miniature Art 2017” is September 29, 2017
Artists may submit up to 4 works, each with an image size no greater than 4″ by 6″, not to exceed 24 square inches; framed pieces should not exceed 48 square inches (all works must be framed). Original work only will be accepted – no copies – in any fine art media (no crafts, jewelry, photography, laser prints or computer-generated artwork). Sculpture is encouraged, and should not exceed 5″ in any dimension or 125 cubic inches. Awards will be offered as follows: Best of Show ($300) and 3 Merit Awards ($100 each). A 35% commission will be charged on all sales. The entry fee (for 1-4 works) is $25; an additional $15 will be charged for return shipping and insurance on works not hand delivered.
