Calling All Artists and Artisans

The State Museum of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Heritage Foundation invite artists and artisans to submit applications to exhibit their work in Art of the State: Pennsylvania 2019

Hey, Artists! Here's your opportunity to step out of the studio and into the limelight.

The State Museum of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Heritage Foundation have issued their call for applications to this year's Art of the State exhibition. This annual exhibition presents artists and artisans working across five media, including painting, works on paper, photography, sculpture and craft.

This juried exhibition will run from June 23 to September 8 at The State Museum in Harrisburg.

Resident Pennsylvania artists will have their applications judged by Art in America Contributing Editor Janet Koplos, Artist Rachelle Mozman Solano, and art Historian and curator Marin R. Sullivan. The panel will review and rate all entries, qualifying the very best to appear in this year's gallery show.

While visibility may be the greatest prize for many artists, this annual exhibit also awards cash prizes in each category, along with named prizes including the William D. David Memorial Award for Drawing, and the Docent's Choice Award, both $250 prizes. A $2,000 Purchase Prize is paid to the artist whose work is selected by museum for its permanent collection. Awards, judged by Joyce Henri Robinson, Assistant Director at the Palmer Museum of Art, will be announced at the opening reception at The State Museum on Sunday, June 23.

Information is available at . Click on "2019 Art of the State Call for Entries" in the Quick Links list at the bottom of the homepage. The application deadline is February 28.
