We are aware that COVID-19 is affecting the scheduling of events and other gatherings throughout our community.

The Portage Park Foundation is looking for artists to submit their arts and crafts in a juried art sale held on December 7 and 8 from 3:00 – 8:00 at the Downtown Gallery located at 141 East Main Street, Kent. Painting, photography, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, metals and mixed art mediums will all be considered. We will also consider note cards and stationery.
Artists must complete the online entry form at http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3679192/Portage-Park-District-Foundation-Arts-and-Crafts-Sale-2017 by November 1 for consideration.
“We are looking to promote regional artists with nature-inspired artwork,” said Sally Kandel, Portage Park Foundation President.
All items will be sold on consignment with 60% of the selling price going to the artist and 40% of the selling price supporting the Portage Park District Foundation. A reception will be held on both nights for people to meet the artists. We are specifically looking for artwork in the $25-$500 range, but will consider pieces higher priced.
“Our mission is to generate revenues for the park district to assist with special projects and events. This is a win/win for artists and the parks,” said Beth Buchanan, Portage Park Foundation Vice President.
Artists will be notified by November 10 if they have been selected. There is no cost to apply or to present in the show.
“We want to thank Kent State School of Art for its support with this project,” said Kandel.
