Winter 2019-20 Valley Art Center
On Display: 48th Annual Juried Art Exhibit
Valley Art Center is proud to present the 48th Annual Juried Art Exhibit. For almost fifty years this increasingly prestigious exhibit has spotlighted Ohio and regional artists. Historically we receive approximately 300 to 400 pieces of artwork. The art is juried to approximately 100 works in a wide array of media. Over $1,000 in cash is awarded for Best of Show; 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place; and several community-sponsored awards, including the Hardy Watercolor Award and the Phyllis Lloyd Memorial Award. This year’s jurors were Nikki Woods, Billy Ritter, and Jan Mettee.
Identity: Things Call to Entry Open
Identity is a strange and fascinating thing. As humans, we possess the incredible ability to ascribe human characteristics to nonhuman and even inanimate objects. Our fairy tales are full of animals portraying human traits, a certain angle can create faces in the tangle of tree limbs, and we all know how intimidating that pile of laundry in the corner of the room can seem at two in the morning.
Valley Art Center in Chagrin Falls begins 2020 with the final iteration of a three-year series of exhibits exploring concepts of identity. We invite 2D and 3D artists from the Chagrin Valley and around the world to submit their work exploring this theme through representations of things. Artists may interpret the concept of identity in their own terms and may approach this call through any media and style.
The juror for this exhibit is Guy-Vincent.
Entry deadline 4:00pm Friday, January 5, 2018. The opening reception is Friday, January 26, 2018, 6:00 to 8:00pm. The event is free and open to the public.
37th Annual Art by the Falls Call to Entry Open
Valley Art Center is proud to present the 37th Annual Art by the Falls outdoor fine arts and contemporary crafts festival. Every year the event draws thousands of patrons to the banks of the Chagrin River, located in the middle of historic Chagrin Falls. An ideal setting for an outdoor festival, the quaint village’s Main Street overlooks two waterfalls and hosts a wealth of fine shops, galleries and restaurants.
The show features approximately 120 painters, potters, jewelers, woodworkers, fiber artists and other fine craftspeople. For more information and to enter, go to valleyartcenter.org/abf-cte.
