Archway Gallery presents "Ninth Annual Juried Exhibition" opening reception
Archway Gallery presents its "Ninth Annual Juried Competition," an opportunity for area artists and non-members of the gallery to participate in an exhibition of works in the Front Gallery. Each year a prominent juror selects works by local artists for the month-long exhibition, and sales support a nonprofit organization chosen by the gallery members. Artists may enter one or two works for the entry fee of $30. Prizes include generous cash awards. The first-prize winner will also receive a month’s guest artist hanging privileges at Archway Gallery.
Archway Gallery’s Charity Partner this year is Casa de Esperanza de los Niños (The House of Hope for Children), which is a safe place for children in crisis due to abuse, neglect, or the effects of HIV. It provides residential care and coordinates medical and psychological services according to the needs of each child, striving to break the destructive cycle of child abuse by offering safe homes to children of families in crisis.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 3.
