The Art Studio is calling for entries for TASIMJAE (The Art Studio, Inc. Member Jurored Art Exhibition).
Entries will be accepted March 26-29 at The Studio, 720 Franklin in downtown Beaumont. Entry is open to all TASI members. Membership in The Art Studio begins at $35 for adults. Memberships may be purchased when submitting entries. The Studio is open noon-5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
This year’s show opens April 6 with a reception from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The juror for this year’s show is Caitlin Clay, registrar at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas.
TASIMJAE regularly draws an eclectic group of artists working in all media. TASI director Greg Busceme said that the exhibition is a chance to showcase the diversity of work of The Studio’s membership.
“We have a great many creative people in our membership,” he said. “From professionals to people who make work for themselves, this show displays the wide range of media and ideas of our members. It’s quite something to see the amazing talent affiliated with TASI.”
First prize is $500 plus an exhibition of the artist’s work in May 20120. Prizes are also awarded for second and third places.
“We really encourage folks to enter the show,” Busceme said. “It’s really important that artists of all kinds — be they established or up-and-coming — show their work and get feedback from the public.
“We especially encourage Lamar students to enter. Being in a show is an important part of the growth of an artist.
Last year’s winner was Lisa Reinauer, who will be featured in a solo exhibition in May.
The opening reception will feature most of the exhibiting artists and offers visitors an opportunity to talk with them about their work — and to get involved with The Studio’s community arts efforts.
