Streetscapes: Akron in Plein Air Dates Announced

Summit Artspace Gallery is pleased to announce the dates for S:AiPA 2014. This year the show has been shifted into the earlier part of the summer to accommodate the fall crunch at Summit Artspace. The show will be back in the main gallery on the first floor and we will be up for the July ArtWalk. So, the key dates:

Thursday, June 26:
Evening stamping, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. ( I will probably do an afternoon early-bird session again this year, details to be announced)

Friday, June 27:
Morning stamping, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Saturday, June 28:
Morning stamping, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Sunday, June 29:
Painting turn-in at Summit Artspace, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Friday, July 11:
Awards reception (the show will be hung and open for the July 5th ArtWalk but due to the July 4th holiday, the opening reception and awards will be the following week)

Saturday, August 16:
Final day for the show. Pick up times will be announced later

As with past years, I will work with everyone as much as possible for additional stampings and early turn-ins. I will send out an email alert when the official flyer and entry form is out. All the other details (pick-up times, judge, awards, contact info, etc.) will be included then. Also, watch the Facebook page (Streetscapes: Akron in Plein Air) for updates along the way.
