DEADLINE EXTENDED!!! Call for Art: The 700 Collection, 2023


by Katelyn Coyne

Ignite Studio at the Hamilton East Public Library has opened a call for art for our annual exhibit, “The 700 Collection.” We are seeking art in a variety of mediums for this juried group exhibit with cash awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

About The 700 Collection

The 700’s in the Dewey Decimal System is all about the Arts (with a little recreation thrown in). Materials in this classification include oversized art books for your coffee table, thick volumes on art history, and tomes on architecture. In the stacks of the 700’s, readers can browse for information on traditional mediums such as painting and photography, and less traditional mediums, such as digital and graffiti art. You will find books on ikebana, visible mending, and crochet taxidermy as well. Show us any and all of these mediums and art forms for the upcoming exhibit: “The 700 Collection.”
