BGSU to present 3rd annual NOWOH exhibitWritten by John Dorsey | | firstname.lastname@example.org
BGSU’s annual Northwest Ohio (NOWOH) art show is set to open July 16 in the Dorothy Uber Bryan and Willard Wankelman Galleries located in the University’s Fine Arts Center.
“We try to use every entry received as long as they meet our guidelines. We’ve had several pieces sell in past years, and are able to offer this beautiful professional space. Even though this is a juried show, I think it really gives people that are just starting out or maybe haven’t really shown their work very often, a real opportunity. Also, it is just a great way for local artists to connect with people in their community,” said Gallery Director Jacqueline Nathan.
In addition to public recognition, the exhibition offers awards and cash prizes totaling $750. There is also a People’s Choice Award, where patrons pay $1 to vote and the winning artist receives half of the proceeds. The overall cost to operate the event is around $4,500. Though the entry period has closed for this year, a complete calendar with a list of entry fees, accepted mediums and guidelines can be found at www.nowohartshow.org.
The NOWOH exhibition is free and open to the public. All artwork will remain on display through July 25. For more information, call (419) 372-8525 or e-mail email@example.com.
