The Brand Library Art Gallery in Glendale, California is announcing it’s 43rd Annual Juried Exhibition of Works on Paper. Awards total over $4,000 in cash, with one purchase award, plus inclusion in printed catalog. Our juror this year is KENT TWITCHELL (www.kenttwitchell.org) a muralist and grand scale artist whose larger-than-life portraits, often of celebrities and artists, are iconic in Los Angeles and beyond. Murals include the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Michael Jackson, The Word, and Julius Erving Monument, to name just a few. Twitchell’s dedication to public art and artists makes him a natural fit at the Brand Library & Art Center.

PRESENTATION: Framed work should be glazed with plexiglass (NO glass) and professionally prepared for hanging and exhibition (e.g., neutral-colored mats, no saw-tooth hangers). Three-dimensional, and in some cases, unframed two-dimensional works are acceptable.

Shipped works will be returned approximately two weeks after the exhibition in the same cartons in which they were received. A prepaid shipping label (UPS only) and a $25 handling fee are required for return shipment. Works not picked up on the designated date or not accompanied by a prepaid shipping label and handling fee become the property of the Brand Associates. At their discretion, the Brand Associates may choose to return forfeited works to artists; any works returned under these circumstances will incur a storage fee of $5 per day. Instructions for shipped works will be included with acceptance letters.
