Summer Art Series
Call for Pastel Artists
Cazenovia College’s 2013 Summer Art Series will host a juried pastel art exhibition open to pastel artists who are over the age of 18 and residing in the Central New York area (generally Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, Otsego and Tompkins counties.)
The exhibition will run from June 8 to August 4, 2013, at the Cazenovia College Art Gallery in Reisman Hall. Summer exhibitions offer an opportunity for the College and community to join together to foster creativity and support the world of art.
Submissions for the exhibition will be juried by the Summer Art Series committee. Each pastel artist may submit up to three images for consideration. To support the College’s Summer Art Series there will be a fee of $15 for the first entry, $10 for the second entry and $5 for the third entry. All subjects and styles are eligible. Paintings must be at least 80 percent pastel, firmly framed, with eye screws and strong wire; ready to hang. The size limit is 48” framed, in either direction.
This exhibition provides an opportunity for artists to sell their work, with 20% of the purchase price donated to the Cazenovia College Summer Art Series. All paintings accepted must be delivered to the Gallery in person by the artist or a representative. The College cannot accept crated work delivered by any commercial carrier for this exhibition.

In the Sculpture Court ... Domestic Landscape
Beginning in October 2012, the work of international exhibition sculptor Rob Licht explores the influence of landscape on the individual by addressing the power of certain forms found in nature to evoke memory, emotion and anthropomorphic physicality.
Of his work, he writes, "The steel sculptures presented are inspired by the glaciated topography that surrounds Cazenovia… The formal layout of the Sculpture Court suggests to me the formal arrangement of a long living room. By referencing the arrangement of furniture, the work encourages playful interaction. Resting on the sculptures, the viewer will, hopefully, gain an appreciation for the landscape features that predominate in the region."
Exhibition continues through Oct. 15, 2013.
