DAMARISCOTTA — River Arts invites artists to submit work for its upcoming “Black, White & Tones of Grey” exhibition. Organizers seek submissions of in any media, sculpture and fine crafts, according to a news release from the gallery.

Submitted works of art should be created from “Black, White and Tones of Grey”. Work can be submitted during gallery hours anytime before 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 17. The opening reception is set for 5-7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 23.

The juror for the exhibition will be Tina Ingraham. Ingraham has a broad history in a variety of teaching experiences, done independently and within educational institutions including Bowdoin College, Stephens College, Maine College of Art and Brooklyn College where she received a Charles G. Shaw Award for excellence and teaching Fellowship. She is currently writing a text on teaching painting developed from her approach to teaching color theory directly on the palette and inspired by her study of master paintings relevant to her work.

Artists can enter up to three works for jurying. The entry fee is $15 for members and $20 for non-members. All work entered must be for sale. Wall-hung work size maximum: 60 inches in height, 42 inches in width — and for safety reasons plexiglass or other non-glass option should be used for larger than 34 inches, excluding pastels.

River Arts holds 10 themed, open, juried exhibitions per year. Over 800 Maine artists have exhibited in these shows.

River Arts is located at 241 U.S. Route 1. Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday.
