Plainfield artist Brian Russelburg organizes The Reflected Light: A Midsummer Art Exhibition annually for local artists. He has put out an open call for those who would like to exhibit in this year’s show.
“I myself have been the curator for the last three years,” Russelburg said. “I am a graduate of Herron School of Art and Design (with honors) in Indianapolis and I hold a BFA Fine Arts degree.”
The opening reception for the show is 6 p.m. July 25. The show is held in The Gallery at BOL (Bread of Life Ministries), 7510 E. County Road 100 N. in Avon.
“The opening receptions have been very popular and are well attended, with 300 to 400 each year,” he said. “Not too bad for word of mouth.”
Food and music will be provided. The gallery will be open again from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 26.
The open call goes out to artists who work in painting, ceramics, photography, mixed media, sculpture, video, and others. Art submitted must be positive in nature, upbeat, not reflecting hate, racism, no heavy political messages, nor graphic nudity. This is a family show.
Work must be accompanied by a signed waiver form given at the address of the BOL gallery on the dates of collection. Collection dates are 5 to 9 p.m. July 18, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 19, and 5 to 9 p.m. July 21. No work will be collected after these dates. There are no exceptions.
The Reflected Light: A Midsummer Art Exhibition is free and parking is free.
