Artists invited to submit work for Pitt-Greensburg fall show
Entries are being sought for the third annual art show to be held as part of the Blue & Gold Celebration 2019 at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg.
The exhibit will run from Sept. 27 through Oct. 10, Pitt-Greensburg’s Founders’ Day. Artwork will be available for viewing during normal operating hours at the Millstein Library on the Hempfield campus.
This year’s show will feature both General and Judged categories. Winners will be announced during a public reception from 6-7:30 p.m. Oct. 4. Some artwork will be available for purchase.
“The Art Show @ Pitt-Greensburg is open to all skill levels and ages. We’ve added the Judged category this year because there was interest from the professional artists who have participated to have this opportunity,” says Julia Sefcheck, Pitt-Greensburg alumni engagement officer. “In keeping with the show’s overall purpose of showcasing the talent of our region, the General category provides a venue for artists within the Pitt community and surrounding communities to share their work.”
Two-dimensional, original painting, drawing, photography, mixed media, digital art and graphic art pieces will be accepted for the General category.
The General category allows artists to display any number of pieces. From these pieces, three winners will be named “fan favorites” and awarded prizes. Winners will be chosen based on a fan-favorite voting system, beginning Sept. 27 and closing at 5 p.m. Oct. 4.
The Judged category allows artists to submit up to five current pieces to be evaluated for special recognition by three judges. The top vote-getter in each category will be awarded a prize. Second- and third-place pieces in each category will receive a certificate.
Artwork for the Judged category can include two-dimensional painting, drawing, photography and mixed media.
The show is supported in part by Muse Sponsor Fotorecord Print and Marketing Center.
