The River Gallery in Chelsea is seeking artist submissions for the 2013 Sculpture Walk.
“Sculpture Walk Chelsea” is an annual public arts project sponsored by the Chelsea Downtown Development Authority, the city of Chelsea, Sounds & Sights on Thursday Nights, and the River Gallery. Sculptures will be juried into the exhibit and installed outdoors, on concrete pads in high profile locations in the city's historic downtown business district.
Sculpture Walk Chelsea is open to all artists 18 and older. Artists may submit up to three original sculptures. Applicants can download and print a copy of the application from the River Gallery website.
Artists should include a copy of their resume, and an artist statement. Each application must include a CD with digital images of the artwork, and each image file name must specify the entry number, title, and artist's last name. Each image must be a high resolution, 300 dpi. and measure 5 inches by 7 inches.
Email submissions will also be accepted. File size should be 72 dpi at 8 inches by 10 inches. Each submission must also include information about the sculpture, including title, dimensions, media, date created, and retail price.
Each artist selected will receive a $600 stipend. The postmark deadline for submissions is March 22.
