Calling all Artists!
Recovery Resources May Art Show is almost here and we are looking for artwork to display at the Cuyahoga County Justice Center between May 1st and May 31st. If you are an artist interested in participating, please contact Carrie Larsen, Marketing & Communications Manager, at clarsen@recres.org or (216) 431-4131, ext. 2502.
The artwork will be displayed in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month. We are accepting all different forms of art, including canvas pieces, photography, paint, sketch, etc. You may choose to make your artwork for purchase or have it returned after the show.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Is there a specific subject or theme for the artwork that you're collecting?
A: We are accepting any variety of artwork, we just ask that the pieces do not include bad language, nudity, or violent images.
Q: Is there a limit to the number of items turned in?
A: To give as many people as possible an opportunity to display their pieces, we are limiting each individual to four pieces.
Q: Where do we drop off the artwork?
A: You can drop off the artwork to Recovery Resources Midtown location – 3950 Chester Ave., Cleveland, OH 44114. When you get there, park in the back parking lot. Once inside, have the front desk call for Carrie Larsen or leave the artwork with the front desk. If you are unable to drop the pieces off at our location, we can arrange to have them picked up.
Q: Where and how will they be displayed?
A: The Art Show will be displayed in the very front of the Justice Center’s lobby – right next to the entrance. The pieces will be displayed on several easels and large free-standing walls.
Q: Is there a specific size requirement for artwork?
A: We do not require artwork to be a certain size, however, there is a limited amount of space for pieces larger than 16"x24".
Q: If chosen to put items for sale, is there a percentage that Recovery Resources will take?
A: If a piece is purchased, all of the money goes directly to the artist. We do not require that any percentage goes to us. However, if you wish to donate a portion of the money from the purchase to Recovery Resources, we can work with you to determine how that would happen.
Q: When do I need to drop off my artwork by?
A: We ask that artwork be dropped off to our Chester Ave. location by April 25th.
If you are able to print out the artwork release form yourself, please bring it with you when dropping off your artwork. Otherwise, we will provide an arwork release form, which you can fill out in-person.
New this year, we will highlight four artists as our “Featured Artist of the Week”. For one week each, the four artists will have one of their pieces prominently displayed in the center of the art show with a “Featured Artist” sign hanging above and a large poster board with a description about the artist/artwork next to it.
NOTE: Including featured artists in the May Art Show is a direct effort to continue our goal of highlighting Mental Health Awareness Month. To be considered as a featured artist, we ask that you include how mental health affects your life and/or your artwork. This description can be a short as one sentence or as long as two paragraphs.
If you are interested in being one of our featured artists, please contact Carrie Larsen and she will provide you with the featured artist form.
