Call For Art - Fence Show at The Arts Center of the Capital Region



The Arts Center of the Capital Region is pleased to announce a call for members’ art for the 2019 Fence Show.

The Fence Show got its name when members’ artwork was exhibited on the iron fence surrounding Washington Park in Troy, the original location of the Arts Center. In 2018, we accepted over 400 pieces, including paintings, drawing, photography, fiber arts, stained glass, and sculpture. The artwork is displayed salon style (floor-to-ceiling) in our galleries, and all levels of skill and ability are represented, from novice to professional. We invite you to be part of the tradition. All members of the Arts Center are eligible to enter.

AWARDS

This years’ awards ceremony is focused the artist. The awards ceremony will take place on May 31 at 6 pm during Troy Night Out. We will be awarding a total of $3000 in cash awards, including Best in Show, who will receive a cash award and a solo exhibition at the Arts Center in the Wallace & Foyer Gallery in 2020. The awards support artists of all levels of experience and are made possible through the generous support of Karen & Chet Opalka, Architecture+ and the Marcelle Foundation.

JUROR

Each year, we invite a juror to choose artwork for the Fence Select, an exhibition curated from the works in the Fence salon. This year, the Fence Select exhibition will be juried by Nicole Hayes. She will identify approximately 75 pieces that will remain on display through July.

Nicole Hayes is the Curator at Art Omi: The Fields Sculpture Park in Ghent, NY.  Since joining Art Omi in 2014 Nicole has co-curated the Annual Summer exhibition in the Fields Sculpture Park installing up to ten new works in the sculpture park each year. Before coming to Art Omi, Hayes was a studio manager and worked in numerous galleries in New York City.
