Gallery Hours: Mon – Fri 8-5, Sat 10-2, Sundays during performances

Judge: Ken Elliott www.kenelliott.com "There is paradox in Ken Elliott's landscapes: they pulse with powerful color, and yet collectors speak of his paintings as exuding a sense of calm. They contain choreographed rhythm and order, even within the seeming disorder of winter trees along a creek," Southwest Art Magazine, May, 2012

The PSC invites each signature and master signature member to exhibit a small, cohesive body of work (3 -5 paintings) in Journeys, the 2015 Signature Members' show. We challenge you to embark on a personal visual exploration of a subject or place or an approach to the medium. Each artist's paintings will be hung as a group and must have a unified style, focus, and presentation. A short statement of up to 200 words about the artist's journey will accompany the work. The work will be judged for cash prizes. Work submitted should be completed within the two years prior to the show. Work from other PSC shows is eligible for Journeys, however, paintings included in this exhibit WILL NOT be eligible for future PSC Member or Mile High shows.  

Eligibility: Open to dues-paid Signature and Master Signature members of the Pastel Society of Colorado. Original paintings only: no class work or copied work. Work must have been completed within the last two years. The Pastel Society of Colorado and Lakewood Cultural Center reserve the right to reject inappropriate subject matter. Every attempt will be made to hang all the artwork that is delivered based on space available. All paintings must hang for the duration of the show.

FEES: $36.00 for 3 -5 paintings. The Pastel Society guarantees that at least three paintings per member will be hung. All paintings must be for sale. A commission on sales of 40% will be charged with 30% to LCC and 10% to PSC. The gallery will handle all sales transactions. Net proceeds will be paid to artists at the conclusion of the show.

Specifications: Must be suitably framed with D hangers and wire. NO saw tooth hangers. NOTE: Please wire the paintings so that the high point reaches 3 inches below the top of the frame. Attach labels to back of paintings.

Liability: Artwork will be insured only while on the premises of Lakewood Cultural Center during the dates specified on this form for the show. Submission constitutes agreement for PSC and/or LCC to use these materials for promotional purposes.
