A Call for Artists from the Gateway Center for the Arts Debary FL

April 10th, 2013 Posted in Crafts, Events
Calling all artists!

Art Springs Eternal

April 28- June 22

If you missed the paint out, there is still time to capture your image from one of our area springs and submit your piece(s) for exhibition at Gateway.

Submissions are due on April 19 and 20.


You are encouraged to submit up to three paintings for an exhibit entitled Art Springs Eternal to take place at Gateway Center for the Arts from April 28 through June 22. Art Springs Eternal is a nod to our state’s 500th birthday and part of our celebration of VIVA Florida 500. It was a myth that Juan Ponce de Leon came to Florida hoping to find the Fountain of Youth, but one visit to a Florida spring will certainly rejuvenate your mindset and make you understand how this myth might have been propagated.

There is no fee to participate in the paint out, although there is a fee of $25 to submit one image for inclusion in the exhibition at GCA, and $15 per additional image, with a maximum of three total pieces submitted for exhibition.

How to Enter

*bring your painting(s) and a check for $25 for one entry and $15 per additional, (maximum of three) payable to Gateway Center for the Arts on either April 19 or 20 and fill out entry form.

Pieces may not exceed 72″ in any one direction. All paintings must be suitably framed with wood, metal or plastic and use screw eyes and wire on the back.
