The Portage Park District Foundation is looking for artists to submit his or her arts and crafts in a juried art sale that will be held Dec. 7 and 8.
The show will be from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Downtown Gallery located at 141 E. Main St. in Kent.
Painting, photography, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, metals and mixed media art will be considered. Note cards and stationery will also be considered. Artists must complete the online entry form at http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3679192/Portage-Park-District-Foundation-Arts-and-Crafts-Sale-2017 by Nov. 1 for consideration.
"We are looking to promote regional artists with nature-inspired artwork," said Sally Kandel, president of the Portage Park District Foundation.
All artwork will be sold on consignment with 60 percent of selling price to the artist and 40 percent of selling price to support the Portage Park District Foundation. A reception will be held on both nights for people to meet the artists. The park district is looking for artwork in the $25 to $500 range, but will consider pieces that are priced higher.
"Our mission is to generate revenues for the park district to assist with special projects and events. This is a win/win for artists and the parks," said Beth Buchanan, the Foundation vice president.
Artists will be notified by Nov. 10 if they have been selected. There is no cost to apply or to present in the show.
"We want to thank Kent State School of Art for its support with this project," said Kandel.
