Longview 150 Sesquicentennial Art Exhibit

Featuring Selected Original Works by East Texas Artists. All artist are welcome to enter.

Greetings everyone!  LMFA has created a unique opportunity for the East Texas arts community to participate in the 150th Anniversary Celebration of the founding of Longview.  Through a donation from The Summerlee Foundation, the museum will be hosting an exhibit May 16 thru June 27 of 2020, presenting works created by local artists.  These works are to be based on Texas Registered Landmarks within the city limits of Longview.  To have a clearer understanding, the prospectus is listed below:

  • Historic structures can be interpreted at the artist’s discretion. Artist may submit up to three (3) pieces of art.
  • Artists may create their art with paper (watercolor, pastel, charcoal, drawing, etc.), canvas or fiber. Fiber Art does not have to be framed, but should not exceed 18” x 24”.
  • Canvases must be 1 1/2” gallery wrapped and have finished edges, either 16” x 20” or 18” x 24”.
  • Works on paper can vary in size but must be matted in a white matte to fit a 16” x 20” or 18” x 24” frame which will be provided by the museum. Frames will be provided by LMFA and will remain the property of LMFA at end of show.
  • Each artist will receive $30 for supplies for selected works of art.
  • Each artwork will be reviewed for inclusion in the exhibit by the LMFA Exhibits Committee
  • Approximately 50 works will be selected for inclusion in the exhibition.
  • Unsold art will be returned to the artist.
  • In the event an artwork is sold the artist will receive 70% of the proceeds and the museum will receive 30%.
  • Commitment of your intent to submit a work for the exhibition must be received by February 3, 2020 by filling out the google form on LMFA’s website.
  • Finished pieces will be accepted the week of March 2- 6, 10am-4pm at LMFA. They must be labeled with the title of work, medium used, artist name, address, e-mail and telephone number
  • A People’s Choice and the Curator’s Choice will be awarded.

You may use LMFA’s photos of Longview’s Texas Registered Landmarks or take your own photograph with your desired light and angle from which to create your artwork. All Registered Landmarks are listed on the Gregg County governments Historical Commission website.
