PHM Transit of Venus Art Contest
A $25.00 prize will be awarded for the top entry from each level--grades 1-5, grades 6-8, and grades 9-12. Homeschoolers may enter under their equivalent grade level. Artists whose work is selected for exhibition will receive certificates acknowledging their contribution to the 2012 transit of Venus experience.
Call for ArtArt may be of any medium, preferably matted, with a size limit of 18 x 24 images. Please drop off your art on Monday, April 30, at the Penn Kingsmen Art Gallery between 2:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Enter through Door A of Penn High School. The work that does not get selected should be picked up 2:00- 4:40 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2, in the gallery. Artists whose work is exhibited may pick up their art on Friday, June 1, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. While it tries to care for all art, the Penn Kingsmen Art Gallery is not responsible for loss or damage, or for artwork not picked up on schedule.
Each piece should have a title. Include on back your name, school, grade, teacher, and contact info (home address, home phone). Limit of five 2-dimensional pieces per teacher and one 3-dimensional piece per teacher due to space limitations.
The show opens Thursday, May 3, and will be open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on all school days through May 2012. Visitors may enter Door A at Penn High School, 56100 Bittersweet Road, Mishawaka, IN.
