Annual Plaid Show Seeks Submissions

It started as a joke, but after a decade and a half, the annual plaid-themed art show at the Gallery at St. John's Lutheran Church at 330 Ferry St. is an Easton tradition.

Once again, the show, which will run Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. from March 2 through April 27, is seeking submissions from area artists for the 15th Annual Plaid Show, subtitled "To Plaid Or Not to Plaid."

Of course, since entries are strongly encouraged to incorporate plaid in some way, "no matter how subtle", the answer is clear.

The show is open to all art mediums and artist experience levels. All artwork must be framed, wired and ready for hanging. For three-dimensional art, approximately three linear feet of space will be available. Small stands or tables no more than 2 1/2 feet wide may be used.

There is a $10 entry fee per artist. Twenty percent of proceeds from sold works will be donated to the gallery, with the other 80 percent going to the artist. Additionally, some of the entry fee will support the Arts Community of Easton (ACE), which is co-sponsoring the show.

Full show guidelines, along with a registration form, are available online here.

An opening reception will be held on Sunday, March 2 from noon to 3 p.m., and an artists' talk and awards ceremony is planned for Sunday, April 6 at 12:30 p.m.

For more information about the show, call the gallery at 610-258-6119, show organizer Pamalee LaDuca at 610-258-5865 or email here.
