Art Center looking for admissions for annual art showcase

2020 MSOLL third place entry, "Cool Jazz" by Brenda Benson, mixed media collage

QUINCY — The Quincy Art Center has opened entries for the 27th Annual Mary S. Oakley & Lee Lindsay Artist Showcase.

Artists who are age 18 and over and live within 50 miles of Quincy are eligible to enter. Artwork of any medium may be entered as long as it was created within the last three years (after Nov. 2018) and not exhibited at the Art Center or satellite space.

Each artist may submit up to three pieces. An entry fee of $15 per piece will be required, with Art Center members receiving a $5 discount on the entry costs. A completed and signed entry form must be completed and submitted with the artwork.

Drop-off dates for artwork will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 2, 3, 4, and 6. Pieces must fit through a standard double doorway, and must be hand-delivered and picked up by the artist or their agent.

The MSOLL Showcase will be juried, with Len Davis, a California-based artist, will serve as the juror for this exhibition. Davis has exhibited, lectured, and led workshops nationwide, with artwork appearing on television shows such as "The Big Bang Theory," "Grey's Anatomy," and "Six Feet Under."

Along with judging the Showcase, Davis will also lead a collage workshop at the Art Center from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Nov. 9. No experience is necessary, as students will learn to create collage and graphite compositions onto newsprint and panel with an epoxy finish. Registration is $65 and includes all materials.
