Invitational Exhibit


North American Bird Art Featured



           The Klamath Art Association and Gallery is hosting a themed invitational exhibit "In Celebration of Birds" from February 4 through 25, 2018 featuring North American bird species. This exhibit is in conjunction with the Winter Wings Festival held on President's Day weekend in Klamath Falls, Oregon. The gallery is issuing a call to artists, photographers, sculptors and crafts people to exhibit their creations including birdhouses. The exhibit will open with an artist’s reception from noon to 4 PM on Sunday, February 4th. The Klamath Art Gallery is located at 120 Riverside Drive and is open Wednesday through Sunday noon to 4 PM.
           Both members and non-members of the Klamath Art Association are invited to participate. Entrants have a chance to win “People’s Choice” awards in three categories based on voting by patrons visiting the exhibit during the opening reception. All work must be for sale. The commission rate is 30% for non-members and 25% for members of the Klamath Art Association. To help defray the cost of publicity, award ribbons, and refreshments, non-members are asked to pay an entry fee of $5.00 per work for artwork that is for wall display. For crafts items that are displayed on tables, there is a single flat $5.00 entry fee for non-member table space. Tabletop display space will be up to the discretion of the exhibit manager. All work needs to be delivered in person to the Klamath Art Gallery at 120 Riverside Drive on Thursday, February 1st, from 2 to 5 PM. For questions or inventory and tag forms, please send your e-mail request to: klamathartassoc@aol.com. Forms will be available at the gallery the afternoon of January 4.
             In order to ensure that every member and ­invitee is able to show examples of their work during group exhibits, there is a limit of two works if they are under 24" x 36 inches on the outside of the frame or a total of 864 square inches (external measurements) if they are an odd shaped frame. OR: 1 work up to 28" x 42" as measured to the external edges of the frame or a total of 1,176 square inches as measured to external edges of an odd size frame. Framed work is preferred. All “wall” work must have wire back hangers clear across the back of the work. No hook or loop hangers. "Coloring Book" art is specifically excluded, as it is not original art. The gallery reserves the right to refuse work that does not fit the theme or does not meet the above requirements. NO exceptions.
