For the eleventh consecutive year, Art Uptown Gallery is opening its doors to welcome community artists and art lovers to celebrate midsummer with the Dog Days of Summer juried open art exhibit. The show will run from July 27 through August 30, which gives participating artists the opportunity for excellent exposure at the gallery’s 1367 Main Street location in Sarasota. An opening reception on Friday, August 2, from 6 to 9 p.m., will showcase the work of the guest artists as well as that of all the gallery’s resident artists.
This year’s juror is Nathan Beard, well-known Saint Petersburg artist and curatorial assistant at Dunedin Fine Art Center. The top Dog Days award winners will have the privilege of showing their work in Art Uptown’s Main Street window for two weeks, and will receive additional prizes generously donated by local businesses. Area artists who are 21 or older are welcome to submit up to 2 pieces to the show, in either 2 or 3 dimensions. (Further submission information is available by calling 955-5409 or visiting www.artuptown.com.)
