Bowling Green State University (BGSU) Art Galleries is hosting the Sixth Annual Northwest Ohio (NOWOH) Community Art Exhibition.
NOWOH is an annual event that supports regional artists by providing an opportunity to show their work in a professional setting. The show will begin with the opening reception on June 21 at 7 p.m. and will continue until July 12 at 8 p.m. The event will be held at the BGSU Fine Arts Center, and will be free and open to the public.
Artists of all skill levels are encouraged to enter. Registration is open now until Saturday, June 15. Artists are encouraged to preregister online to forgo waiting in line when they drop off their artwork on June 15. Further information regarding how to enter can be found at www.NowohArtShow.org.
For this year’s show artists have a chance to have their work evaluated by the Curator of American Art for the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Sarah Aubrey. Artists who display their work at the exhibition have the chance to win up to $1400 in cash prizes and gift certificates. Among these awards, artists will have the opportunity to win the Best of Show award, the Kiwanis Young Artist award and a People’s Choice award.
Artists 16 years of age and older from the following counties are eligible to participate in the exhibition: Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Sandusky, Seneca, Williams, and Wood. For artist ages 16-18 entry fees are $15, and for artists 19 and older entry fees are $30. All entrants are able to submit up to three entries to be evaluated.
Volunteers are needed for the set up and take down of the event. Artists who volunteer for the event will receive a registration discount. Contact Jacqueline Nathan at galleries@bgsu.edu for more information about volunteering.
Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, from 1-4 p.m., and Friday evening, 6-8p.m. The exhibition will be closed on July 4 and 5.
