Joachim Regional Museum Community Art Show January

Artists may bring their art pieces to the Museum from Jan 18th to 25th. The Museum is accepting all mediums and pieces should not be too large as the gridwork standards are 36” x 48” wide. Artists are limited to 7 pieces of art and the art must be framed/matted and ready to hang with a sturdy hanging system. There are some small display cases for ceramics, pottery or other 3D pieces. The museum will create exhibit labels and if artists want to include a statement for a piece they may include it as well. If artists want to bring their business cards, the museum will also put those out.

If the pieces are for sale they can let the museum know when they come to drop them off and fill out the paperwork. Contact Jessica.Stratton@dickinsongov.com with questions.
