Members’ Show 2017- Call for Art

Our Annual Member show is coming upon us soon, and we would love to put your artwork in the exhibition!

Please see the below letter from our QVCAH President:

 2017 QVCAH ANNUAL MEMBERS’ SHOW

You may submit up to three pieces of artwork for exhibition in our galleries at  111  Main Street, Southbridge, MA.  The show will open on Friday, June 9th with a Reception from 7-9pm and the final day of the show will be Sunday, July 2nd.

There is no fee to enter, BUT you must be a Member of QVCAH and have your dues for the 2017-18  Fiscal  Year up-to-date.  If you have joined and paid for your membership sometime between last June and the end of this June, you are covered for the exhibit; if you were a Member before this time, or wanting to become a new Member, we would be happy to extend a new membership to you in order to show your work.

Please submit work that is ready to hang, i.e. wired and labeled on the back.  If entering sculpture, please contact us as soon as possible with the dimensions of the work so that we are able to arrange the best platform or podium for your pieces.  Be aware that insurance for the work is the responsibility of the artist; we do have a security system.  Please let me know with a phone call or email if you are interested in participating, at which time I will send you the two forms you will need to complete and deliver with your artwork.

(You can also find these forms below)

We will be accepting artwork for the exhibit on the following days:

Thursday, June 1st, 4-6pm;   Friday, June 2nd, 4-6pm;   Saturday, June 3rd, 12-2pm

Adolph Rutkin – Artist Statement

AdiWatercolor

As a child in Tampa, Florida, I would sit beside my father and watch him  water coloring in the family dining room.  I loved to see the images and color take shape and this eventually led me to my own ideas and the beginnings of attachment to art that is a part of me today. I went on to major in Art at the University of South Florida where I received first a BA and then an MFA.

I have always been interested in the human condition with all of its turmoil, conflicts and ironies and I think of my work as a doorway that leads me and others to unexpected destinations. Color is a dominant concern and a force in the make up of each piece as I use contrast and turbulence to give the piece its structure and form. My artwork tells a story, perhaps several stories that are nor always apparent at the first viewing.

To me struggle seeks resolution.  Expression looks for a voice. How you control the confusion and the battle that ensues forms the meaning of the work.
