The Port Townsend Arts Commission and Northwind Arts Alliance are seeking submissions for “Expressions Northwest”, the 14th Annual Art Port Townsend Juried Art Competition, which takes place from Aug. 3–Aug. 26 at the Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend, Wash. Artists must be at least 16 years of age and a resident of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, or British Columbia. Works in both two- and three- dimensional forms, including photography, are eligible. A total of $1,300 in cash prizes, a purchase award, and additional merchandise awards will be presented.
The juror for this show will be Rock Hushka, Director of Curatorial Administration and Curator of Contemporary and Northwest Art at Tacoma Art Museum. He has curated more than 50 exhibitions and worked to build the museum’s permanent collection, adding more than 1,600 works by Northwest artists. Under his leadership of the artistic program, Tacoma Art Museum has received major grants from the National Endowment for the Arts for a handbook of the Northwest art collection.
A non-refundable entry fee of $45 is required for a maximum of three digital entries (no slides or prints) per artist. This year, entry images must be submitted online to www.OnlineJuriedShows.com. Entrants will need to first create a free account and then follow the directions for entry into Art Port Townsend. The deadline is June 1.
