FireUP! at Point Arena CITYART

Gualala Arts membership show at CityArt
March 4 through March 27

Opening Reception: Friday, March 4, 5 to 7 p.m.

CityArt "Gualala Arts is pleased to accept CityArt's offer to host a membership show in Point Arena this March," said David (Sus) Susalla, executive director of Gualala Arts, this week. "We believe the coastal arts scene will thrive on such cooperation. We also appreciate the North Coast Artists Guild's members volunteering to organize the show as a juried exhibition, exclusively for members of Gualala Arts. Of course, many of our members are also members of NCAG and CityArt, so we look for a good turnout for FireUP!"

FireUP! is a challenge to artists to expand their artistic visions, to reach for greater technical excellence, and to reaffirm their passion for their mediums. FireUP! will open at CityArt on March 4 and will be juried from the artwork. Several cash awards will be presented for outstanding artworks. Artists are challenged to submit one or two works, that represent an evolution of their artwork to a higher level. Think new methods, new mediums, new techniques, or new subjects. All works must the original, no wider than 60", and weigh no more than 80 pounds.

FireUP! is restricted to members of Gualala Arts (nonmembers will be able to join as they deliver their art,) and works must be delivered to CityArt in Point Arena between 11 a.m. and 3 PM on Tuesday, March 1, with entry forms and checks attached. Jury results will be available after 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, and artists must pick up works not juried into the show on Thursday, March 3, between 10 a.m. and noon. Entry forms are available here, and from Gualala Arts and CityArt.

An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 4, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and the show will run through March 27, 2005.
