BATAVIA – Artists of all kinds are invited to submit work to GO Art! for our 5th Annual Art of the Rural Juried Show. GO Art! is so excited to have the opportunity to open our Bank of Castile Main, Oliver’s, and Batavia Club galleries to a variety of artists for this show.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring back the ‘Art of the Rural’ Juried Exhibit this year,” said Gallery Coordinator Mary Jo Whitman. “We have always had such a great turnout and community response to this annual exhibit. It is a fabulous opportunity for artists of every level to showcase their talents while exploring the theme ‘rural’.”

Entries of any media, no larger than 36” by 48” will be accepted from Feb. 23 through March 4 at 201 E Main St in Batavia (Seymour Place) during gallery hours. All works must be original and created by the submitting artist. No previous submissions are permitted.

Entries must be accompanied by an entry form as well as an entry fee of $30 that will cover the submission of 5 pieces for members and 3 for non-members. Additional submissions will cost $5 each. Entry forms can be found at goart.org/upcoming-exhibitions.

Absolutely no entries will be accepted after March 4. A jury of selection will review all entries and will choose artwork to be displayed in the exhibit. Notification, by email, of the jury’s decisions will be made by March 12.

Accepted art will then be displayed in our The Art of the Rural Exhibit that will run from March 16 through April 30, with an opening reception to be held on March 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. All are invited to this free reception! Tavern 2.o.1 will be open and on reception night cash prizes will be announced and awarded.
