It's time for the artists of Halton Hills to be entering their favourite pieces in the John Sommer Juried Art Exhibition. The exhibition will take place at the Halton Hills Cultural Centre Gallery in conjunction with Halton Hills Arts Week. Arts Week is an annual arts festival with 30 different events encompassing visual and performing arts taking place all over Halton Hills. Traditionally, Arts Week is kicked off with the grand opening of the John Sommer Juried Art Exhibition. The exhibition is named in honour of longtime resident, John Sommer, who has worked tirelessly to promote the arts in our town. Sommer will be there to help celebrate and to help present the awards. Last year about 80 artists submitted work, with almost 200 individual pieces entered. Craft and artworks can be in any two or three dimensional media, painting, sculpture, photography, glass, ceramic, fibre, hand-pulled prints. Work must be original (no kits or patterns) and completed within the past year. Participants must be residents of or have studios in Halton Hills, or be members of Halton Hills organizations. The exhibition will run from April 25 until May 7. The opening reception will take place on Thursday evening, April 27, from 7 to 9 p.m. Entrants need to pre-register their work. Entry forms are available at the office in the Cultural Centre, 9 Church Street, at the Williams Mill Gallery, at the Acton Library, or online at www.haltonhillsartsweek.com. The completed entry forms should be either mailed or dropped off to Williams Mill Gallery, 515 Main Street, Glen Williams, ON, L7G 3S9, by Sunday, April 16th. Art work must be delivered to the Halton Hills Cultural Centre on Monday, April 24th, between 8:30 a.m. and noon. The entry fee remains the same as last year, $10 per piece, maximum three pieces-- $25 (non-refundable). Two dimensional work must be framed, ready to hang, with eyelets and wire affixed. Halton Hills Arts Week encourages all artists to participate, and to share their talents with a very appreciative public who can't wait to see what is being offered this year.
