Below is the accepted work for the 2017 Laurel Art Guild Open Juried Exhibition. I want to thank all the artists who submitted work to Montpelier and to our wonderful juror, Walter Bartman.

If your work has been accepted please send an email to: lagopen@laurelartguild.org . Please include your First and last Name, and Title of the accepted work. Also please check the spelling of your information as well. Let me know whether:

  1. You'll be able to deliver your work to Montpelier on March 7th from either 12-2pm or 6-8pm.
  2. The size of your painting is correct. Verify it lists width X height, not the reverse order, since size restrictions differ for each direction.
  3. Your art has not previously exhibited at Montpelier Arts Center
  4. The spelling of your name, title of the work, and medium are correct.

Be sure to bring your $25 hanging fee (cash or check only) when you drop off your artwork.

Please remember Framed dimensions must not exceed 36" wide X 48" high. Anything larger than this will be rejected upon delivery. All art must be suitably framed and securely wired for hanging. Exposed glass edges or unstable frames will not be accepted. Matted works must be matted in white or off-white only. Glass must be clean. Wall-mounted sculptures which are fragile or contain breakable materials must be in a shadow-box frame and must weigh less than 40 lbs., including frame. All art falling outside of these parameters (art quilts, glass, etc) need to have everything necessary to hang when delivering work. If you have special needs, please contact me prior to the art drop off date.

Laurel Art Guild reserves the right to refuse any artwork upon delivery that it deems to be improperly presented, unsafe, damaged, does not meet size requirements, or not the same as represented in the image submitted for judging.
