Re:-Claimed, 'Imagined, -Purposed (Rebooted!)

The Lemont Art & Culture Commission is sponsoring the "RE" exhibition open to all artists 16 and over in the Chicago Metropolitan area. This exhibition focuses on 2D and 3D works created from previously used materials. Based on the success of our 2017 show, we are rebooting the concept for this fall!

Submission Guidelines
Artists may enter up to four works of art in the form of digital image files (no smaller than 800 x 800 pixels; no larger than 1500 x 1500 pixels) saved as a JPEG at the highest quality setting. File names must correspond with the titles on the completed entry form. Portfolios of images may be submitted as email attachments sent to or on CDs (clearly labeled with the artist’s name) mailed to the Lemont Center for the Arts. (If disc return is desired, include a SASE with the appropriate postage for a CD.) Members of the Art and Culture Commission of Lemont will jury work. In order to be reviewed, portfolios must be complete (images, application form, and fee) by the application deadline: August 1, 2018.

Exhibited work may be sold at the price specified on the entry form. The LCA receives 30% of the total price. If work is not for sale, please indicate this on the entry form. Accepted work may not be substituted or withdrawn before the close of the show. The LCA reserves the right to photographically reproduce accepted entries for publicity purposes.
