The Marion Art Center and Sippican Lands Trust are partnering up once again to sponsor an exhibition by local artists to highlight the many scenic sites that comprise the Sippican Lands Trust’s properties this fall. This is one of several initiatives undertaken by the SLT to encourage visitors to enjoy our properties around Marion.

The Marion Art Center and SLT are hosting an opening titled “Images: The Lands of the Sippican Lands Trust” on Friday, October 12 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Marion Art Center. Please join us for this opening and celebrate the many talented artists who contributed their artwork for this exhibit.

For the fall exhibition, local artists are invited to submit up to three works, in any media, for a non-juried exhibition to be held at the Marion Art Center from Friday, October 12 through Saturday, November 17. All submitted works must depict scenes of or from SLT properties. The Marion Art Center will receive a 35% commission on the sale of each piece.

Registration deadline extended to Saturday, October 6, 2018. Artists wishing to exhibit their artworks should submit original pieces (no more than 3), matted and framed with title, medium and price. Sculpture should be presented exhibition ready. All pieces must be for sale and must be originals and have been executed within the past 3 years. All submitted works must depict scenes of or from SLT properties and the location must be identified. All paintings and photographs must be framed, preferably matted (in white or neutrals) and ready to hang (i.e., secured with heavy picture wire and wrapped in tape, affixed to hooks that have been secured to the frame).

The drop off date for pieces is Tuesday, October 9 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Marion Art Center, 80 Pleasant Street, Marion.
