Art Exhibit At Newbury Old Home Day
Call for Entries: In celebration of our annual Newbury Old Home Day, the Town of Newbury will host an art exhibit featuring local artists. We would like to invite you to display your artwork during this event. The exhibit may include paintings, photography, rug braiding, handmade baskets, pottery, woodworking, etc. All pieces will be displayed in a public area with potential high foot traffic and combined with other events. The Town shall not be liable for any lost, stolen and/or damaged pieces. Fragile and unstable items are discouraged. All paintings and photography must be ready to hang (wire across back). All paintings and photography must be framed or gallery wrapped.
Demonstrations: Artists displaying in the exhibit are invited to demonstrate their craft either outside the exhibit or inside depending on the nature of their craft.
