Austin, TX, December 10, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Austin Art Space Gallery and Studios officially opened submissions for the 5th Annual ‘For the Love of Art” Juried Exhibit. The show is one of three juried shows held each year at the gallery that have drawn entries from as far away as New Zealand, France and Alaska.
The subject matter need only represent the artist’s interpretation of what love is, or the impact love has. The style of art is completely open and can range from literal to representational to transcendental. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional work is permitted. The only restriction is size. No dimension can be larger than 48 inches.
This year’s juror is acclaimed central Texas artist and instructor Beryl Kerwick. Ms. Berwick’s watercolor, oil and acrylic pieces are collected throughout the United States. She taught at the Dougherty Arts Center in Austin, Texas for 20 years, and now holds private instruction classes.
Artists may submit up to four original entries either electronically or via mail. The entry deadline is Monday, January 18, 2010. Timed to coincide with Valentine’s Day, the exhibit runs February 8-27, 2010. The selected artists and patron will be invited to attend the special Artists’ Reception, Friday, February 12 from 6:00-9:00pm.
