GAP is excited to partner with Laurel Arts for their Triennial show, “Building Bridges”, June 22 – August 5, 2021, juried by Diane Kelly of Firesong Studio. In addition, we are thrilled to partner with Associated Artists of Pittsburgh in an AAP and GAP member-only show on the same theme. Here is how to be considered for these two opportunities in one:
Art Submission Process
If you are not currently a member, join GAP or renew your membership at https://papercutters.org/membership/.
Ship up to three artworks to Laurel Arts for jurying by June 17, 2021. Read the full prospectus at https://papercutters.org/wp-content/uploads/Triennial-2021.pdf Make sure to check the box that you are a GAP member.
Any GAP member works not selected for the Laurel Arts Triennial will instead be displayed in the GAP Museum or the Bottleworks Ethnic Arts Center in nearby Johnstown, PA. We will notify you shortly after the jury process to let you know where your art will be displayed.*
Apply for the similarly-themed exhibit at Associated Artists of Pittsburgh. You may submit the same images as the Laurel Arts exhibit, or add more. Anyone who first submits their work to the Laurel Arts Triennial will have their applucation fee waived, and transit of artwork will be provided between the venues. The show will be October 14 through November 10, 2021. Application is coming soon!
Submissions may be considered for the GAP National Museum’s Permanent Collection, pending progress by Strategic Planning and Museum Committees.
*Requirements for GAP Display:
- Must include some form of cut paper
- Must be original in design, not copies or reproductions
- Must be in acceptable display condition (Plexiglas recommended for framing to avoid broken glass).
Laurel Arts is a family friendly art center, so please consider this in the selection of your works.
