“We are looking to promote regional artists with nature-inspired artwork,” said Sally Kandel, Portage Park District Foundation President.
All artwork will be sold on consignment with 60% of selling price to the artist and 40% of selling price to support the Portage Park District Foundation. A reception will be held on both nights for people to meet the artists. We are specifically looking for artwork in the $25.00 – $500.00 range, but will consider pieces higher priced.
“Our mission is to generate revenues for the park district to assist with special projects and events. This is a win/win for artists and the parks,” said Beth Buchanan, Portage Park District Foundation Vice President.
Artists will be notified by November 10, 2017 if they have been selected. There is no cost to apply or to present in the show.
“We want to thank Kent State School of Art for its support with this project,” said Kandel.
