Calling all artists: Lake Land College to host Art Heritage 2013

The Lake Land College Foundation is pleased to announce its 2013 Art Heritage Show, and invites artists to enter their work, which will be displayed at the Virgil H. Judge Learning Resource Center throughout the month of October on the Lake Land College campus.

Artists interested in entering their work in this year’s show should submit an entry form by Sept. 20 and then bring pieces to the Virgil H. Judge Learning Resource Center on the Lake Land College campus either on Tuesday, Sept. 24 from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. or Wednesday, Sept.25 from noon to 5:00 p.m. Please bring all work to the second floor commons area.

Artists are limited to enter two pieces of artwork. Entry forms are available by calling the Foundation office or by accessing: http://www.lakeland.cc.il.us/foundation. 

“We’re very excited to host this show once again, and offer an opportunity for many talented artists in the area to display their work,” said David Cox, director of the Foundation and Alumni. “Last year we saw so many interesting pieces from artists in various communities, and we hope to have the same response this year.” 

Monetary awards of $100, $50 and $25 will be given to first, second and third place winners in each of the three categories: Professional, Amateur and Student.  One Best of Show in the Professional and Amateur Division combined will receive a $150 award. A Best of Show Award in the amount of $150 will also be awarded for the Student Division.  The First National Bank of Mattoon will sponsor the Professional and Amateur Division, and the Prairie Field Folk Art and Craft Show will sponsor the Student Division.  The Student Division is open to students in grades 6-12.

Instructions to enter the competition are as follows: a $10 entry fee for each entry in the Professional and Amateur divisions and a $5 entry fee for each piece in the Student division are required at the time you submit your entry form. On the back of each entry, list the name of the artist, artwork title, division and either the asking price or “not-for-sale”. All art work must be framed and wired for hanging on a hook.  Failure to do so will disqualify the artwork from the show. Sculptures or other 3D pieces do not need to be wired for hanging. These entries will be placed in, on, or by a display case.

A reception for all exhibiting artists will be held Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013 in the Lake Land College Virgil H. Judge Learning Resource Center from 7:00 to 8:15 p.m.  Presentation of awards and individual critiques for artists who request them will take place during the reception.  

All artwork should be picked up on Oct. 31, after the show at the Virgil H. Judge Learning Resource Center. The hours of operation for the center are as follows:  Monday through Thursday 7a.m. – 9 p.m.; Friday 7a.m.-5p.m.; Saturday 12:30-4:30 p.m.; and Sunday 12-9 p.m.

For more information or inquiries, please contact Cox at 217-234-5376.
