an initiative of the Arts Alliance of Greater Waynesboro (AAGW)
Those of us working with “Destination ARTS!” are excited! As you may know, we turned many of the empty stores in Waynesboro, PA, into art galleries last summer. These spaces made wonderful temporary galleries where the residents of the region and beyond enjoyed quality art. We drew people from outside the community to see our many talented artists and crafts people, as well as to enjoy the beautiful countryside. Gallery 50, our anchor gallery, 42 West Artists Co-Op and the Ceramic Arts Center remained open all winter and spring. Now we are preparing for the Grand Opening of our second summer and fall season. There is a new Gallery 20 East for shorter, “pop-up” shows and coming soon, a new gallery – “Through the Lens” – Gallery 74 West, a photo gallery run by a group of sixteen photographers.
We invite you to participate by submitting up to four works of art for display and sale to the public. Our opening will be on Friday, July 19, with events through the weekend, including music, a grand opening reception, and other activities. We want to highlight paintings, sculpture, photographs, fiber arts, jewelry, ceramics, and other art forms.
All the galleries will be open Thursday through Sunday throughout the summer and fall months, with special exhibitions and events to include local businesses and restaurants.
Your art will be covered by insurance once it is received and while on exhibit. You may also include flyers concerning your art and career, which each gallery director will have for potential buyers. The art will remain on display for six weeks. When works are sold, that artist will be contacted first to add another work to the gallery.
To submit art to either Gallery 50 or Gallery 20 East obtain the appropriate form below and contact that gallery’s curator with the contact information shown below. Please include high resolution images of your work for consideration.
We look forward to hearing from you and are excited to have this opportunity to exhibit your art!
