CUMBERLAND — The C. William Gilchrist Museum of the Arts, 104 Washington St., is offering an opportunity for artists to show their creations during the upcoming Art For Giving exhibition.
The annual show will begin Nov. 29 and continue until Dec. 22. The exhibit is open to the public free of charge each Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Volunteers at the museum have planned the multimedia display with holiday gift giving in mind.
Each artist may submit two pieces of artwork for the nonjuried show. There are no entry fees. 2D and 3D works are welcome, from newcomers to professional artists.
Each piece should be labeled on the front or back with title, medium, artist and selling price. Due to space limitations, only one piece may be displayed until the first is sold. The gallery staff has discretion with regard to the manner in which submitted items will be installed and displayed. All art should be originals. Coloring book art or commercial painting kit art will not be accepted. Photography prints are accepted. 2D art should be securely wired, with no sawtooth hangers. Entry forms will be available during the submission days.
Artwork is to be dropped off Nov. 9 or Nov. 10 from 1 to 4 p.m. During the exhibition, those buying artwork will be allowed to take their items at the time of purchase.
An opening reception will be held Nov. 29 from 4 to 6 p.m. That event also is free and open to the public. The Gilchrist has a sales commission of 30% to support the nonprofit organization.
The historic home was built in 1843 and is available to be rented for special events like holiday parties, weddings and business meetings. Residents can leave a message inquiring about special events bookings at 410-967-9112.
