Roux & Cyr International Fine Art Gallery has just put out a call for artists to submit their work for an upcoming four-week exhibition titled “Passionate Color,” to be shown in Portland, Maine, in October. Specs and details here!

Juror Sandra Leinonen Dunn will have the tough task of curating what is sure to be an outstanding exhibition. In addition to having entrants’ work on display at one of the premier galleries in the United States, there are a number of prizes to be had. The Best in Show winner will have their entry fee waved for 2018 in addition to having their own solo exhibition at the gallery. The same awards will be given to the People’s Choice winner. Second and Third place winners will receive a joint exhibition plus a waived entry fee. Finally, Honorable Mention will receive a waived entry fee in 2018.

On view from October 6 through 27, the exhibition centers around color. The entry fee will be $25 and juried by images only. All artworks must be original, completed within the last three years, and no larger than 12 x 16 inches. According to the announcement, “We encourage original paintings in realism, ranging from traditional to impressionism. Paintings selected should be framed in gold plein air frames (2.5 inches or wider), and ready to hang.”

Deadline for submissions is September 9. To learn more, visit Roux & Cyr or complete the Entry Form.
