JAS9 Participants Announced
On Wednesday morning, the list of chosen artworks for this year's Jersey Shore Annual Juried Art Show was announced on our main website. The juror chose 87 pieces, a mix of paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, and fine craft items. Winners in the categories will be announced at the opening reception on March 23rd.
Having chosen 87 pieces, a number a bit larger than that were rejected from the show and should be picked up as soon as possible. Artists should arrange to pick up their pieces on Thursday March 14th between 1 and 5 pm, and Friday March 15th between 1 and 7 pm. A small fee will be charged per day after that for unclaimed work, so try to get there by Friday.
If you have not been to the Boatworks since dropping off your work by this past weekend, you may be in for a bit of surprise. The street and parking lot reconstruction that has been going on for the past month or so kicked into high gear this week. Our block is a wide swath of mud and construction vehicles right now, leaving very little parking near our building and a convoluted path to our front door. We are told that this will all be finished well before our opening reception on March 23rd. You can still get to the building for the next few days, but you should allow yourself a little extra time to find parking and wear shoes suitable for walking across the dirt and mud.
