Invitational Letter to Teachers

 

 

 

 

Kewpee High School Invitational

March 2 – April 14, 2012

 

 

Dear High School Art Teachers,

 

ArtSpace/Lima in conjunction with Kewpee Hamburgers is pleased to announce the 24th Annual Kewpee High School Art Invitational.  This exhibition is a much-anticipated show and we are looking forward to showcasing the talents of our area’s up-and-coming artists.

 

The categories will be the same as in years past: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, ceramics, mixed media, jewelry, and digital media.   First, second and third place awards will be given in each category in addition to a best of show award. 

 

We are asking that you, as art teachers, self -jury your school’s pieces before bringing them to ArtSpace.  We are looking for the “best of the best.”  When submitting work, please do not bring every piece produced by your students as the show has grown tremendously over the years and your pre-judging will help us keep the quality of the show high while helping to reduce the sheer volume of intake.  In any case, please do not submit more than 30 pieces.

 

Drop off dates for the works will be February 15-17, 10am -5pm and February 18, 10am-2pm.  Please have your pieces separated by category to ease the intake process.  In addition to having each piece marked with the enclosed tags, please email a spreadsheet of the works your school is submitting to Kay VanMeter at kay@artspacelima.com.  This spreadsheet will be emailed (or faxed) back to you with the winning pieces from your school highlighted. This process is intended to expedite the time in which you learn of accepted works for the show as well as assist with labeling the artwork.  A sample spreadsheet is enclosed.  You will hear from us via email or fax with the show’s accepted works no later than noon on Wednesday, February 22nd.    

 

Please consult the enclosed sheet for further information.  Also, please be certain you have completed the enclosed entry form for your school.  Should you have additional questions, contact ArtSpace/Lima at (419) 222-1721.

 

Thank you for participating in this year’s Kewpee Invitational. 

Best of luck to you and your students.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Kay Van Meter
