Arts for ACT Gallery taking entries forjuried exhibit

By Staff | Jun 7, 2021

The Arts for ACT Gallery is taking entries for its juried exhibit, “Altars, Shrines, Ditty Boxes and Cabinets of Curiosities 2,” to open July 2. Two- and three-dimensional works in any media welcome. Use your imagination and creativity to express the theme. Create personal shrines, icons, sacred spaces or collections of notable objects. Use shadow boxes, Altiod Mints tins, cigar boxes, upcycled clocks and more and fill them with found objects, photos, memories and treasures. Create altered art that is a personal icon, meditational or sacred to you. Entry fees are $10 for one piece, $15 for two and $20 for three. Entry fees help support ACT — the domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking center serving Lee County. Artist drop-off days are June 25-28 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. A portion of the sales from the sold pieces will benefit the ACT shelter. For more information, contact Claudia at cgoode@actabuse.com or 239-939-2553 or the gallery at 239-337-5050.
