Art News from Clayton Bass, Huntsville Museum of Art

March 23, 2010-
Dear Artist,

In its ongoing efforts to encourage creativity and engage artists of all ages in our community, the Huntsville Museum of Art (HMA) will present a juried exhibition, Imagine Tomorrow, opening on June 13 and closing on September 5, 2010. The title theme is intentionally broad, and should allow artists a wide range of interpretations, which will make for a fun, engaging show with many perspectives represented.

I want to invite you to join the HMA in this community-wide celebration of the arts. The exhibition will be juried with no entry fees and open to all media. Hopefully many artists will participate and show strong examples of Huntsville’s rich and varied artistic community. In addition, the opening day’s activities will provide an opportunity for participating artists to do demonstrations in the exhibition galleries during the afternoon. The Museum Staff will also host a simple reception that day, and would appreciate any additional food or beverage items that you may wish to bring.

Included is the list of rules for the juried exhibition and the timeline for the project. We look forward to working with you and hope this brings great exposure for your work. Don’t hesitate to contact me should you have questions.

Warm regards,
Clayton Bass
President & CEO
