CALL TO ARTISTS
Galloway Ridge at Fearrington, a senior retirement community, is looking for art created by Chatham County artists to display in our distinguished and Weathersfield Cafe for our Galloway Ridge-Chatham Artist Collaboration.
Galloway Ridge is located near Fearrington Village on 15-501 between Chapel Hill and Pittsboro. Many of our residents and visitors are collectors and would welcome high quality original art both at Galloway Ridge and their private homes.
The art should be original 2-D paintings or photographs. The following themes are preferred – landscapes and seascapes; scenes from cities and towns emphasizing architectural elements; nature featuring flowers and animals. We’d favor art rendered in realistic or impressionistic styles, but tasteful abstracts will certainly be considered.
Each artist can submit a maximum of four pieces as Jpeg files with each having a resolution of between 100 and 200 pixels/inch and a maximum dimension of 1400 pixels. Each file should include:
Contact information needed: Name, phone number, e-mail address, mailing address and a list of the art submitted with name (e.g. Sue Martin_#1 Wings on a Cloud, Oil painting, 16×20), title, medium and size. This can be done as an e-mail to or on a CD mailed to Pat Richardson at Galloway Ridge at Fearrington, 3000 Galloway Ridge, Pittsboro, NC 27312.
Deadline for submission is Monday, June 11th at 5pm. The selected artwork will be on display at Galloway Ridge for 12 weeks starting June 22 – September 21, 2012. Selected art work will need to be dropped off on Friday, June 22nd from 10am-3pm or Saturday, June 23rd from 10an-12noon.
All artwork will need to be onsite at Galloway Ridge for the entire duration of the rotation. No substitutions or removal of selected pieces once displayed.
All art should be ready to hang, with wire hangers. Art on paper (photographs, watercolors etc.) should be matted and framed with glass. Oils and acrylics on canvas can be framed or presented as gallery wrap. We’d prefer 11×14 to 20×26. Larger paintings such as 20×26 and above are needed also. Contact information should be attached to the back of each piece.
We are not able to advertise prices, but will make contact information available to anyone interested in purchasing a piece of art or seeing more of the artist’s work. There are no fees for submitting work and any sales resulting from the show are 100% the artist’s. Thus far we have sold 3 pieces from the second rotation and 8 pieces sold from the first rotation.
For more information please contact Pat Richardson at 919-642-6893.
