The Boothbay Region Art Foundation Maine invites artists who paint, draw, sculpt, produce hand-pulled prints or create assemblages to submit their work for selection in “ARTinME, 2017.”

Chris Crosman will juror the exhibit this year.

Crosman, the former director of the Farnsworth Art Museum, where he served for 18 years, is the founding chief curator of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. He has written extensively about American art and artists, including serving as editor and principal essayist for Celebrating the American Spirit, the inaugural publication of the collection of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and author of “Islands for Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect,” an exhibition opening at the Brandywine Museum, Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, and traveling to the Seattle Art Museum this fall. He lives in Thomaston, where he is an independent curator, consultant and writer.

Entries are open to all artists with a Maine address. Up to two pieces may be submitted, no larger than 2,500 square inches each. Sculptures must be manageable in size and weigh 50 pounds or less. Photographic and digital entries are not accepted for this exhibition.

Submissions need to be received between noon and 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10, and between 9 a.m. and noon Wednesday, Oct. 11, at the BRAF Gallery, 1 Townsend Ave., in Boothbay Harbor.
