Danville: 'Affordable Art Show' seeks artists to enter juried exhibit

Village Theatre's creates opportunity to buy original artwork at lower price

“The Affordable Art Show” is set to be an upcoming exhibit at downtown Danville's Village Theatre and Art Gallery, which will allow members of the community to own an original piece of art at a low price.

To help stock the gallery with work from local artists, theatre officials are calling on artists to submit their own work, with the deadline for submission set at Sept. 27.

All the work that will be displayed at the show will be set to a price of $199 or less, with artists are encouraged to submit their work at the town of Danville website.

The application fee for artists to submit their work will cost $10 and will include having their work evaluated and priced for the gallery. Art for the exhibition will be selected by a committee of jurors, which will consist of working arts professionals, artists and art gallery staff.

The opening reception for the gallery is set to take place on Oct. 24 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., where complimentary refreshments will be served to those attending. The gallery will be running the show until Dec. 17.

The Village Theatre and Art Gallery, 233 Front St., is open to visitors Wednesdays through Fridays from 12-5 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Mondays and Tuesdays by appointment only. The gallery is closed on Sundays. Admission is free.

Any additional questions about the exhibit can be directed to Marija Nelson Bleier, the town's visual arts coordinator, at 314-3460.
