The Cass County Regional Gallery walls in the County Building are painted, cabinets are on the way, artists are invited! The simple downloadable application form will be published on our website shortly. Speaking of "short"--the application is short and sweet!
This venue will be featuring an "open art exhibit" format, which means the only thing artists will need to do is fill out the tags for their work and show up with their entry on the intake day at the gallery. No long applications, no waiting for jury selection, no photos need be submitted, no entry fees, no commissions! Even the opening reception will be free to artists.
This is your opportunity to have a space in a public building with lots of people traffic absolutely FREE! The building also has 24/7 video security for your peace of mind. The County Administrator envisions this project as a way to introduce our very own Michiana artists to the population at large and has appointed Cass Area Artists to organize the effort and carry out the mission. We hope to have the first exhibit up sometime in December, so we're gearing up to make that happen.
We'll be meeting at the Cass County (Michigan) Old Courthouse and courthouse Annex building in Cassopolis on Monday evening at 6:30 PM to take a look at the exhibit hallways and storage areas available for the gallery project. Any and all who are interested are welcome to participate and offer advice and suggestions. Whether you are an artist or a person with organizational talent (or both) we hope to see you there.
