Garrett Museum of Artshow to open March 10


Garrett Museum of Art will open its annual members show with a reception from 6-8 p.m. Friday, March 10. This event is free to the public. The museum is at 100 S. Randolph St., Garrett.

Works remain on exhibit through April 9. Museum hours are 5-8 p.m. Friday, 4-7 p.m. Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday.

This year’s show will feature cash prizes for first, second and third places and for the top student artist.

“Our membership’s work has grown over our four years to actually fill every wall in the gallery,” a museum spokesperson said in a statement. “Growth in content, skill, scale and media is what any true art gallery wishes to happen.”

The museum shows works of local and regional artists, and regularly hosts artists and speakers from other states and Canada. Shows also feature children’s art. Professional art teachers work with the children regularly.

Each member may exhibit two pieces of artwork for a single entry fee of $5. Both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional art will be accepted. A $25 annual membership entitles the member to participate in the annual shows and to receive discounts to participate in other exhibitions.
