The eighth annual “Wings, Tails & Scales: An Art Exhibition Celebrating Animals” is seeking entries for the annual all-media juried art exhibition to take place Feb. 23 to 26, 2012. The exhibition, held in conjunction with the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association’s annual Midwest Veterinary Conference, is a fundraising event benefiting the Ohio Animal Health Foundation.
In years past, artists have submitted a variety of 2-D and 3-D works, including photographs, sculptures, paintings, drawings and more. Accepted pieces compete for two awards offering cash prizes: Best of Show is $250 and People’s Choice is $150.
The Call for Artists is open to residents of all 50 states and Canada who are 18 years of age or older. Entries must be original works of art that portray animal subject matter in 2-D or 3-D format. No installation pieces will be considered. The entry deadline is Jan. 31, 2012. Entries must be for sale during the show, and the OVMA will deduct a 10 percent commission on all sales to benefit OAHF.
Selected members of Ohio art associations will participate as jurors for the 2012 exhibit selection. Please visit the exhibition’s Call for Artists page for submission instructions and additional information.
