RADFORD – Glencoe Mansion is calling for art for its upcoming Gallery Exhibit, “Follow Her Journey,” a multi-artist show themed around Mary Draper Ingles.
Artwork for consideration should reflect or be based on the life and times of Mary Draper Ingles. This includes, but is not limited to depictions of local landmarks (for example, Ingles Farm, the Cultural Heritage Park, Ingles Tavern and ferry site), and Colonial style art.
All fine arts and fine craft media including painting, plein-air, illustration, digital media, textiles, mixed media, and photography will be considered. Artists may submit up to three artworks for consideration.
Applications will be accepted through 5 p.m. on June 3. Participation, which is subject to acceptance, is open to artists in and around the NRV area, ages 16 and up. Individuals under the age of 18 must have approval of the application from a legal guardian. Artists will be notified via email no later than June 15.
Featured artists will be listed on the Glencoe Mansion website and social media and any Mary Draper Ingles Festival programming put out by Glencoe Mansion, Museum and Gallery. The work may be photographed in the gallery setting for social media and press release promotions, with all efforts made to credit artists.
The museum will not duplicate, use, or recreate any trademarked or original digital files or images without the artist’s permission. Artists must be available to drop off their artwork between the dates of June 28 and July 3 and pick up their work between the dates of Aug. 29 and Sept. 3. Artists must have their work ready to hang using gallery wire.
The exhibit will be displayed throughout July and August with an opening reception during the Mary Draper Ingles Festival of July 29-31. More details of this event will be sent out to artists closer to dates of the event.
