Entries sought for regional exhibit, competition


PENDLETON — The Pendleton Center for the Arts, 214 N. Main St., seeks entries for its annual Open Regional art exhibit and competition to be held there.

The exhibit offers both amateur and professional artists a chance to share their artwork with the community as well as vie for more than $1500 in cash awards.

This year’s event features painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, fiber arts, book arts and more.

Photography is the only medium not accepted.

The exhibit is non-juried, so every work is accepted and displayed.

There are categories for teens 13-18 and adults.

The exhibit opens May 2 with a judge’s critique and reception, and be on view through June 28.

Susan Murrell, associate professor of art at Eastern Oregon University, will judge entries.

She exhibits her work nationally, and has been awarded artist residencies at Yaddo, the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, and The New York Workspace. She was recognized in 2012 with a Golden Spot Residency Award at Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts.

Two special cash awards will be presented to the best works that feature textile as an art medium, thanks to support from the Krazy Horse Quilters.

Drop off date for artwork is Saturday, April 27.

Entry forms and complete information are available at the Pendleton Center for the Arts, 214 N. Main St. or online at www.pendletonarts.org. For more information, call 541-278-9201.
