Work should be delivered to the Gallery @ LPCA (17 Algonquin Drive, Lake Placid) September 11, 12, 13 & 14 from 1 - 5pm accompanied by a non-refundable entry fee of $25. The entry fee covers up to two submitted works. No more than four entries per artist. Jurors Holly Friesen and Tim Saternow will determine exhibited and non-exhibited works and awards. A list of exhibited works will be posted at LakePlacidArts.org by 5pm on Tuesday, September 17. The show will hang in the Gallery @ LPCA through November 2.
The LPCA also invites the public to attend an opening reception for the exhibit on Thursday, September 19 from 5:00pm until 7:00pm.
New Awards for 2019
New this year, the show will offer three avenues for artist recognition. The first two avenues include works accepted into the Juried Show and prizes awarded for First Place ($2,500), Second Place ($1,750) and Third Place ($1,000). The third avenue is acceptance into the Salon des Refusés, an exhibition of all non-juried work modeled after the subversive exhibit held in 1863 Paris to assuage artist protests while allowing the public to make their own judgments of works that were not selected for the elite Paris Salon. The LPCA's Salon des Refusés will celebrate this year's non-juried works with a reception in the Annex building (17 Algonquin Drive) from 5:00 to 7:00pm on Thursday, September 26.
