Chinook Art Show & Sculpture Contest

  • Chinook Art Show & Sculpture Contest
Event Date: 
Friday, January 17, 2020 (All day)

The Matthews Opera House & Arts Center will host the inaugural Chinook Art Show, with local art on display January 17-February 15. The Matthews is asking the public to submit works of art inspired by the frigid temperatures of winter. It might be an image of a wintery scene, a sculpture highlighting the effects of extreme temperature on materials, or anything else the idea of the chinook temperature change inspires. 

ART SUBMISSIONS: 

From beginners to professionals, this show is open to all ages, levels and media. Show registration is not limited to geographical location.

All original 2D & 3D fine art of any size is accepted. If you are unsure or have questions about artwork size, call 605.642.7973.

All artwork entries should include a statement from the artist (200 words or less) explaining their inspiration and how the piece fits into the chinook theme.

All 2D work must be framed and wired with proper hanging devices. No sawtooth hooks or tape. 3D work must be ready to be installed. Photography must be framed unless it’s on gallery-wrapped canvas.

Sale of artwork is encouraged! The Matthews Opera House takes 35% commission on all sales. Matthews Opera House will collect and pay all applicable sales taxes. Pieces that are NOT for sale need to be marked with NFS on the artist statement.
