Art exhibit asks for masterpieces

By Izzy Anderson - Staff Reporter

Spring into a new season of art by entering the Kent Summer Art Exhibit.

Deadline for entries is March 22.

 Artists  residing in Wash-ington have the opportunity to submit a variety of art types. They have had many artistic pieces shown in the past as well.

"The Kent Summer Art Exhibit have displayed artworks representing a variety of mediums over the years [including] photographs, prints, paintings, mixed media, encaustic wall-hanging carvings, and collages," said Kent Cultural Programs Manager Ronda Billerbeck.

The Summer Art Exhibit will remain up for display from June 7 to Aug. 24 at the Centennial Center Gallery at 400 W. Gowe St., Kent.

Entering into this exhibit also gives artists the chance for a spot in other gallery shows.

"Applying for the Summer Art Exhibit is the single annual opportunity for artists to be considered for showing in the gallery, as the other shows throughout the year are selected from the artists exhibiting in the Summer Art Exhibit," said Billerbeck. 

They are especially encouraging Kent artists and first-time applicants to enter the exhibit this year, she said.

Cash prizes and awards are also up for grabs to those who enter the exhibit. 

An award panel will give out a total of $15,000 and The City Art Purchase Award to one or more artists. 

Three to five participating artists will receive the 2018 Kent Arts Commission Centennial Center Galley Exhibit Award.

It is possible for artists to win multiple awards. 

The participating artists and guests are also invited to the Summer Exhibit Reception on June 7, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., where they can see which of their pieces had been selected for the exhibit, as well as meet the other artists and admire their works too.
