Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County recently announced an open call to artists for the August 2015 Juried Art Show.

Works smaller than 24-inches wide, in any medium such as painting, relief, photography, collage etc., will be considered. Each piece should be professionally mounted and ready to hang for showing, according to a news release from Hospice.

Submitted work must be for sale and will help benefit the Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County with a 50/50 split between the artist and Hospice Volunteers of Waldo County.

Jurors include Belfast painter David Estey, who was selected in 2014 by Maine Home + Design magazine as one of 37 well-known, highly respected and collectible Maine artists; and Brooks sculptor Kimberly Callas, a recipient of two Elizabeth Greenshield’s Foundation Grants and the Stobart Foundation Grant.

Approximately 30 pieces will be selected for the Juried Art Show and will be shown in August at the Kramer Gallery in the Belfast Free Library. A gala celebration, artists reception and awards ceremony is set for Saturday, Aug. 15, at the library. Multiple honors, prizes, cash awards and a special People’s Choice Award (voted on by the public) will be announced during the artist reception.

To enter, artists can electronically submit up to three works per entry. Suggested donation is $25 per entry. Submission deadline is midnight June 26. For the complete entry process, visit hospicevolunteersofwaldocounty.org and click on the Art Show link.
