Published: August 5, 2016 12:00 AM

The Portage Park Foundation is looking for artists to submit their works in a juried art show Dec. 9 through 11 at the Downtown Gallery, 141 East Main St. in Kent.

Artists must complete the online entry form at: https://fs23.formsite.com/haturner/PPDFoundation/index.html by Nov. 1 for consideration.

"We are looking to promote regional artists with nature-inspired artwork," said Sally Kandel, Portage Park Foundation Vice President.

All items will be sold on consignment with 60 percent of the selling price going to the artist and 40 percent of the selling price supporting the Portage Park Foundation. An artists' reception is Dec. 9 from 3 to 7 p.m.

"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 Board Member.

Artists will be notified by Nov. 11 if they have been selected. There is no cost to apply or to present in the show. Artists working in all mediums are encouraged to apply.

"We want to thank Kent State School of Art for its support with this project," said Kandel.
