PITTSFIELD — The Pittsfield Public Library will hold its ninth annual art show during the Central Maine Egg Festival. The art works — including painting, drawing, printmaking, fiber, sculpture, photography, and digital art — will be displayed throughout the library  Monday, July 9 through Saturday, July 14.

More than two dozen local artists and members of the Valley Arts Alliance exhibited in the show last year. Many people enjoyed meeting the artists at the reception hosted by the Friends of the Library.

Artists are invited to submit artworks for the show. Due to limited space, two items per artist will be accepted and 16 x 20 is the largest framed piece we can exhibit. We will be accepting digital photos of all submissions by email to the library (lsmith@pittsfield.lib.me.us). The submission deadline is Thursday June 28. Artists will be notified by Monday, July 2, if their submission will be exhibited.

Set up for the art show will be Monday morning, July 9. The Friends of the Library will host an artist’s reception 3-5 p.m. Tuesday. Art work can be picked up Monday, July 17.
For information, call the library at 487-5880.
