Arts Alive juried exhibition entries accepted on Sept. 22

Arts Alive — a juried arts exhibition program designed to give regional artists an opportunity to display their works in a public setting — returns to Federal Way Sept. 23 through Jan. 5.

The Federal Way Arts Commission invites artists working with a wide range of media to bring their entries to City Hall, 33325 8th Ave. S, on Sept. 22 between 3:30 and 6 p.m. A panel of artists will select works for the exhibition, which begins the following day.

An Arts Harvest Reception will be held at City Hall at 6 p.m. on Oct. 5 to honor artists in the exhibition. The evening includes presentation of a Juror’s Choice award ($200 cash and a one person exhibition at City Hall in 2011) and Commission’s Choice award ($150 cash). A People’s Choice award ($100 cash) will be decided by popular vote during the exhibition.

The exhibition is open to residents within the following 98___ zip codes ending with: 001, 002, 003, 023, 031, 042, 047, 055, 058, 059, 146, 148, 158, 166, 168, 178, 188, 198, 254 and 422.

Each artist may submit two entries, and all media will be considered except video and wearable art. There is a $5 entry fee per piece of art, with checks payable to the City of Federal Way.

All must be original, recent work, not completed under an instructor’s guidance and not previously exhibited at City Hall or more than two juried shows in the boundaries of the show area. Work selected for the competition must remain in the exhibition until it closes.

Paintings and two-dimensional work must be suitably wired for hanging. All flat artwork may not exceed 36"x30", including frame. Three-dimensional artwork may not exceed 35 pounds and may not be more than 9.5' high and 9.5' wide.
