QUAD CITY ARTS AND MIDCOAST FINE ARTS PRESENT “OUT & ABOUT”

Calling all visual artists:

Enter your artwork inspired by the great outdoors in “Out and About”- a themed exhibition jointly presented by Quad City Arts and MidCoast Fine Arts. Show us what you have seen while you were outside that moved you to create a work of art. Specifically, what did you see while you were walking, bike riding, boating, or hiking? Or birdwatching or daydreaming or….

All artists residing within a 250-mile radius of the Quad Cities are invited to submit artwork of any medium that relates to “Out and About,” for a juried, group exhibition that will be divided between Quad City Arts’ Rock Island Gallery and the Casement Gallery at Bucktown Center for the Arts, from August 25-October 13. The opening reception will be August 25 from 6-9 pm. The opening coincides with “Final Friday” at Bucktown Center for the Arts and the “Alternating Currents Festival” in downtown Davenport. We’re encouraging participants to walk or bicycle over the Arsenal Bridge to attend all three events and make the evening a creative immersion in the outdoors. Prizes will be awarded.

Deadline for entries: July 16, midnight

Submission fee: $25 for up to 4 entries.

Artists will be notified by July 21.

Accepted work must be delivered to Quad City Arts on August 18 (between 10-5) or 19 (between 11-5). Artwork can be mailed as long as it arrives no later than Saturday, August 19. (Artwork that will be displayed at Bucktown will be transported by qualified art handlers so that all artwork can be seamlessly handled at one location.)

Accepted work must be picked up on October 14 or the following week from Quad City Arts.
