The City of Santa Fe Arts Commission will open an exhibit of work by local artists who submitted to the 2013 “Common Ground: Art Exhibit and Prize.” Winners will be announced Friday, October 25th, at a reception from 5-7 p.m. in the City of Santa Fe Arts Commission Community Gallery, 201 W. Marcy Street. The public is invited.
“Common Ground” is a non-juried exhibit that provides an opportunity for local artists to display their artwork and received recognition by the larger community. A panel of judges consisting of Arts Commissioners, artists and community members select three pieces to receive special recognition and honoraria. Best of Show receives a $1,000 honorarium, 2nd $500 and 3rd $250. The Best of Show will also be reproduced on a notecard.
The exhibit will be on display through November 8th. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Most entries exhibited will be available for purchase.
