LeMoyne Jewelry Invitational
LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts invites artists to be a part of its Bi-Annual Jewelry Show,
Fabulous, Funky and Fashionable
Hot Glass and Jewelry Show
September 21 through October 27, 2012
We want to showcase the amazing variety of art that is in our area and the versatility of the artist.
Submission details, inventory sheets and the artist agreement are found in this flyer:
Each jeweler must submit one Showpiece. It should be “out of the ordinary,” something that you have always wanted to do, something spectacular! We will be judging your Showpiece and will present awards, etc. to be announced at a later day. Hot glass artists are invited to create jewelry and submit a showpiece as well. Jewelry artist are invited to cross over and create wall pieces or other 3D works.
In addition to the “showpiece” all artists are invited to enter their popular works of wearable and functional pieces. This has proven to be a very lucrative show for everyone in the past so, the artist will be able to show as many pieces of work as they like.
As in all consignment contracts with LeMoyne, the split is 60/40, where 60 percent goes to the artist. The show runs from September 21 through October 27, 2012. Artists must be at least 18 years of age to participate and agrees to hold harmless LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts in the event of loss or breakage, every effort will be taken to ensure the safety of your work during the holiday.
