Oconee Artist Exhibition opens for 30th year

MILLEDGEVILLE —  

Allied Arts is encouraging artists of all types to showcase their unique works and form connections with fellow artists by participating in the 30th annual juried Oconee Artist Exhibition.

“This is a real opportunity for area artists to show what they’re producing and for other artists and the public to see what’s happening out there in the art world. Often times, we will identify people through the Oconee Artist Exhibition and create a one-person show,” said Randy Cannon, executive director of Allied Arts. “It’s just a great place to meet other artists who experience some of the same struggles as an artist. It’s always important to meet other people that have some common interests, and this is the perfect place to do that.”

The juried exhibition is open to all adult artists over the age of 18 in the central Georgia area who practice a visual art form, either full-time or part-time. Entry forms must be postmarked or hand-delivered to the John Marlor Arts Center located at 201 N. Wayne St. by April 19. Each submitted entry must have the identification label completed and attached when delivered. A nonrefundable entry fee of $20 entitles the artist to submit a maximum of three works. Entries will be received at Allied Arts from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. between Monday, April 22 and Monday, April 29.

“The presentation of the work is so important,” Cannon said. “Only works suitably framed or mounted, and are ready to hang on the wall or display on a table or sculpture pedestal will be accepted.”

The six eligible categories are drawing, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. All works must be original, and copies, kits or entries entered into any previous Oconee Artist Exhibition are not allowed.

“We have not identified the judge for this year yet, but we always look for someone who produces art work and does not intend to enter the show. We prefer someone out of our immediate area,” Cannon said. “We want people to think about what they enter and how they present it because every judge I’ve met considers presentation in their decisions.”
