CCC accepting entries for annual international juried exhibition; 2009 Solo Show Exhibition Winner Elizabeth Malaska’s work on display until November 6th

The Art Center Gallery at Clatsop Community College (CCC) opened the exhibition season with a show entitled Rite of Passage by artist Elizabeth Malaska of Portland. Selected to exhibit in the 2009 Au Naturel competition by internationally renowned artist and juror Rick Bartow, Malaska was also offered the coveted prize of a solo exhibition at the Art Center Gallery. Malaska’s exhibit is on display at the gallery until Friday, November 6th.

The Art Center Gallery is now accepting submissions for the 2010 Au Naturel: The Nude in the 21st Century juried competition through November 23, 2009. Au Naturel is open to all artists working in any two dimensional drawing, painting, and printmaking media with a focus on the nude human figure as subject matter in any form from representational to abstract, and in which the handmade mark is employed as the primary means of image making. Entrants must be 18 years or older. Student work created under instruction is ineligible. Submitted artwork must have been executed in the last three years and available for the duration of the exhibit. Any artwork reproduced by photomechanical processes (including giclée prints) will not be accepted.

This year’s exhibit awards include $1,000 in cash prizes and up to $2,000 in purchase awards. A select number of Visiting Artist Workshop awards will also be granted. Additionally, one artist will be chosen to be featured in a solo show for the following exhibition season.
