“The Spring Equinox – When Day and Night Are Equal”
March 18 through May 14, 2017
The dominance of darkness ends, signaling the return of fertility. New leaves appear on the trees. Crops sprout. Birds mate. Earth life regenerates in the emergence of new light. The great Sphinx of Giza gazes precisely at the rising of the Equinox Sun.
‘When Day & Night Are Equal” honors the sacred significance of the Spring Equinox with works that express the power and beauty of new beginnings, of life springing forth from the dark and cold into warmth and light.
You can enjoy this exhibit on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays
from 11 AM to 4 PM, and during OCA auditorium events.
SEEKING VOLUNTEERS FOR GALLERY
If you are interested in Visual Arts, the Gallery Committee at Occidental Center for the Arts needs members to help plan and organize exhibits and for gallery sitting so OCA can be open to the public more often. It’s a great opportunity to meet other artists, get involved in the community and experience how an art gallery operates. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer.
WHAT IS A JURIED ART EXHIBIT?
A juried exhibit is a competition. A juried art exhibit is an art gallery exhibit, usually based on some kind of theme, where artists enter visual art to be chosen by a juror. Jurors are notable artists or art critics that are invited by the gallery committee to judge and pick the art that will be in that particular exhibit. A non-refundable entry fee is required to submit artwork to a juried show. These entry fees pay for the juror, the best in show award that is chosen by the juror, the opening reception and other administrative costs.
The juror picks what they consider the best art to put in the exhibit, and rejects other art that they deem unsuitable for that particular show. Jurors also select awards, including best in show. The artist who receives this honor usually receives a prize, which is sometimes monetary.
