Call for entries: BAYarts' 2017 juried show

Professional and amateur artists, 18 years and older, are once again invited to submit work to BAYarts' juried show that occurs this March.

This year, Kristen Cliffel and Daniel Levin get the honor of selecting the work. Juried awards are given out, as are cash prizes.

Judge Kristen Cliffel is a ceramic sculptor, who has work in many public and private collections, including, University Hospitals, Metro General Hospital, Lutheran Hospital and Hahn, Loeser and Parks LLP. With residencies both in and out of the United States, Cliffel enjoys seeing work from artists of every sort. "I look forward to seeing all of the amazing work that is being created in this region. Jurying an exhibition is always so exciting because you get to see such a breadth of work that is being produced, sometimes by artists you are familiar with but many times, by artists that you haven’t seen."

Additionally and importantly, Cliffel is proud of artists who enter juried exhibitions. "I really applaud the courage of all participants. Bringing work to a public space to be seen and 'judged' is so very vulnerable and shows the bravery of the human creative spirit."

Executive Director, Nancy Heaton, says, "I hope all artists feel encouraged to submit their work to our latest juried show; their passion is why we continue to host this open submission exhibition."

Artwork can be presented on three drop-off dates: March 3, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.; March 4, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.; and March 5, between noon and 5 p.m. There is an entry fee of $30, which allows for two pieces to be submitted. More details at
