Annual arts show planned at Basin Harbor

It's year number 26 and the Beach family and Basin Harbor Club are again hosting the "Reflections on Basin Harbor" juried art program. Each year Vermont artists are invited to find inspiration amidst the natural beauty of the 700-acre resort on Lake Champlain.

This unique artist-in-residence program allows the selected artists to stay at the resort and create work that evokes the essence of Basin Harbor, the surrounding gardens, remarkable architecture and lakefront.

From Aug. 19 through Aug. 27, 2011, the artwork is displayed during the 10-day exhibit. Since the conception of this program in 1986, over 300 local artists have participated.

Interested Vermont artists are asked to submit as application:

A biography. Applicable press clips or features are welcome as well.

At least six images of your work in digital format on CD with a separate sheet describing size, medium used, year completed and price. If sending digital images, please be sure they can be viewed on a PC. You may also send images/files to pr@basinharbor.com.

If you have mailed any materials, a self-addressed, stamped mailer to return materials after jurying. If you do not wish your CDs or other materials back, please note.

The deadline for submission is March 4. Those artists chosen will be notified by April 1. The program includes a two-night stay in spring/early summer with meals for the artist and guest, providing time and tableau for inspiration.
