On the Wing
Entry Fee: $35.00

From the 2-inch hummingbird to the 9-foot-tall ostrich, birds are found everywhere and are around us every day. They delight us with their beauty and have inspired artists for centuries. This show continues that tradition. Artists are invited to submit original artwork for the On the Wing exhibit at the Kavanagh Gallery of Fine Line Creative Arts Center, St. Charles, Illinois. Birds and their lives are the focus of this exhibit. 2D and 3D artwork in any media will be considered for entry in this show.

The kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home, where Americans spend an average of 37 minutes each day. With this in mind, Fine Line Creative Arts Center in St. Charles is inviting its members to submit items for the Artful Kitchen. This gallery show will feature aesthetic items that serve a utilitarian purpose or, to put it another way, beautiful art that is functional and is found in the kitchen or on the dining table. 

Artists may submit up to eight pieces.  All items must be for sale.  A $10 entry fee applies.  All applicants must have a current Fine Line membership on July 31st for their application to move to the jury stage.

EntryThingy is the application site being used to receive all submissions for this show. There is no fee to use EntryThingy, but you must create a login in order to access the application site.
