COLUMBUS, OH — DEC. 2, 2010 — “Wings, Tails & Scales: An Art Exhibition Celebrating Animals” is seeking entries for the annual all-media juried art exhibition to take place Feb. 24 to 27, 2011.
The exhibition, held in conjunction with the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association’s annual Midwest Veterinary Conference, is a fundraising event benefiting a different pair of charities each year. In 2011, The Wounded Warrior Project and the Josh Project at OSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine will be given a portion of the proceeds.
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 Friday, Jan. 28, 2011. Entries must be for sale during the show, and the OVMA will deduct a 10 percent commission on all sales to benefit the two charities.
Selected members of Ohio art associations will participate as jurors for the 2011 exhibit selection. The Wings, Tails & Scales entry form is available on the MVC Web site or by calling 1.800.662.6862.
