“Celebration on Main”  in Hawley – call for art –

The Wayne County Arts Alliance is excited to announce a “Call for Art” for a major new art installation in Hawley, PA.  In celebration of 99 years in business, The Skier Family of AMSkier Insurance is creating a “Celebration on Main”  in Hawley, PA.  The north side of 126 Main St. Hawley will be transformed into a presentation of artwork by local artists.  Images of original artwork will be printed in high-resolution onto billboard vinyl and mounted to the wall and remain on display for a year.  The WCAA website and AMSkier Insurance website and new “Celebration on Main” websites will include information about the artists.

Clarifications – 1. Artists do not need to be residents of Wayne County.    2. There is no fee to the artists (other than membership in WCAA for the artists selected – individual annual membership is only $35)  AMSkier Insurance is generously funding this project completely.

  1. Please submit up to 6 images for consideration. Low resolution images are requested for judging (72 dpi and 650 pixels on longest side)  Those selected to participate will be required to submit a high resolution image for printing  (300 dpi and 5000 pixels on longest side)  All images should be jpegs; indicate title, medium and year created for each submission.
  2. Submissions must include full contact information including name, phone number AND email. Submissions which do not follow all guidelines will not be considered.
  3. Selections will be made based on artistic quality and graphic strength. The wall is viewed from the street or sidewalk, so strong graphic qualities are important to be effective.  All submissions should be horizontal.  Finished dimensions of the mounted artwork will be 12’ x 16’.   Some cropping may be necessary.
  4. The “Celebration on Main” art display in Hawley is a project sponsored by AMSkier Insurance and coordinated by the Wayne County Arts Alliance.
  5. After a year on display in Hawley, the vinyls will remain the property of AMSkier and the Skier family intends to gift the artwork vinyls to one of the many children’s camps that they support in the US and internationally so that the artwork can be enjoyed for years to come.
  6. Artists selected for “Celebration on Main” are expected to become members of WCAA. We welcome all art-enthusiasts and artists.  Annual individual membership is $35.  Other levels are available.  Online org  or email us with questions for mailing a membership check.
  7. Make your submission via email to waynecountyartsalliance@gmail.com. Please put “Celebration on Main” in the subject line.
  8. Deadline for entries is July 12. Selections will be announced soon afterward and the artwork panels are scheduled to be installed in Hawley this summer. Please direct any questions to waynecountyartsalliance@gmail.com
