SAN MARCOS, TX – Two new Calls for Art from the Price Center will give local artists an opportunity to honor earth and/or create outdoor sculpture for possible permanent display at the Center.
The two art shows will open in April in downtown San Marcos.
“Restore Our Earth” is a community art show open to all area creators designed to honor our planet and highlight ways we can all contribute to her health.
The show will hang in the Center’s first-floor galleries April 3- May 22. All media accepted and up to 2 pieces of artwork may be submitted March 29 or 30 from 10 AM – 5 PM.
A $10 application fee applies, and the Price Center retains a 20% commission on any works sold.
“Sculpture Garden: Seeds of Change” is a special new pop-up show in honor of International Sculpture Day on April 24. Works in the show will be displayed inside the Center, April 21 – May 9.
The Center then plans to purchase up to 3 of the works in the show to permanently install outside in the front garden. Works may be dropped off April 19 or 20 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
A $10 application fee applies, and the Price Center retains a 20% commission on any works sold. Because of the nature of the sculptural work, additional specifications apply.
Applicants should contact the Price Center directly to discuss their piece if they have any questions or concerns.
“We’re excited to be branching out with our efforts to now include outdoor and permanent art installations at the Center,” said Arts Committee Chair Joan Nagel.
The current gallery show “From Challenge Comes Change” is an all-women’s art show in honor of International Women’s Day.
The show hangs throughout the first-floor galleries through March 27. A special virtual celebration will be released on March 8 on YouTube and the Price Center’s website and Facebook pages.
Rotating Art Shows are created, curated, and conducted by the Price Center Art Committee and funded in part through a grant from the San Marcos Arts Commission.Price-Center-Earth-Feb-2021-Art Submission
