Exhibits for 2020

 

Each month we will be hosting an exhibit that is open to the public. Some will be juried, but not all.  Due to our gallery space the entries will be limited in dimensions and number of entries. The openings for each show will be held on the 1st Friday of each month unless otherwise noted.

Basic Rules

• Image content - remember this is a retail space for all ages. Nudes, profanity, violent or politically controversial works will not be accepted.

• Meadville Fine Arts reserves the right to refuse any piece that they deem inappropriate in content or quality for the show submitted.

• All entries must be original works by the entrant and comply with copyright laws.

• All pieces must be for sale. MFA retains 25% of all sales. Artist must set retail price.

• Label your work on the back.

 

• Shipping - If you are mailing a piece, enclose a check for return postage.

 

• Specifics for each month's exhibit are listed here.

 

• For juried shows, prizes will be announced at the show.
