Calling all artists!

The Adams County Arts Council invites submissions to its 12th Annual Juried Art Exhibition, May 29 – June 19, 2015 in Schmucker Art Gallery, Gettysburg College.  Any person over the age of 18 is eligible to submit work for consideration by juror Cristin Cash PhD., Associate Professor of Art and Director, Boyden Gallery, St Mary’s College of Maryland.

Awards total $2,750 with a $1,000 prize for Best of Show. There is a $30 entry fee for Adams County Arts Council members and a $45 entry fee for non-members.

Entry forms and membership information are available online (click here) or by contacting the Arts Council at aa@adamsarts.org or (717) 334-5006.

This event has been gaining momentum over the years, and is now one of the most reputable juried arts competitions in the Mid-Atlantic region. This is thanks in great part to the wonderful partnership we enjoy with Schmucker Art Gallery (see the gorgeous exhibition photo below from last year!) and the Gettysburg Fest, June 12- June 14.

JAE: A June Tradition

Posted on: June 19th, 2014 by Karen Hendricks

When you think of the word “tradition,” perhaps Christmas or the holidays come to mind. Well, it’s like Christmas every year, when we send out the call for entries into the Juried Art Exhibition and receive incredible surprises in return. This year, our office was flooded with more than 100 quality entries. Every year, the talent pool widens a bit, with artists from beyond the borders of Adams County entering their works, plus the depth of talent increases with works of greater quality being entered.

Now marking its 11th year, I think it’s safe to say the JAE has itself become a tradition. Artists plan and look forward to entering their works, supportive sponsors return year after year to underwrite prize monies, and area arts aficionados enjoy attending this well-respected show. The Schmucker Art Gallery at Gettysburg College is an incredible partner and host.

But there’s less than a week left! If you haven’t yet caught the 2014 show… be sure to stop by ASAP because the exhibit closes this Sunday, June 22. Admission is free and everyone is welcome! Hours are 10 am-4 pm daily.
