Dear Artist Friend:
The Mercersburg Historical Society will hold its annual Nancy Horton Heefner Memorial Art Show from Wednesday, August 29, through Friday, September 21, in the foyer of the Burgin Center for the Arts on the campus of Mercersburg Academy. Artists in Franklin and Fulton Counties in Pennsylvania and Washington County in Maryland are cordially invited to enter this non-juried show.
This year again the theme of the show will be Potpourri so that artists may enter work in any medium and upon any subject matter. Each artist may submit one or two works. If you choose to submit two works, please photocopy the entry form and place the information about the works on two separate pages. Each work may not exceed three feet by four feet in size and must have wire on the back of the work for hanging.
The entry form may be duplicated so that you may give it to your friend and needs to be submitted by Friday, August 3. Please send it to Mercersburg Historical Society, Box 115, Mercersburg, PA 17236. If you have questions about the entry form, please call Joan McCulloh at 717-328-2248. As Mrs. Sydney Caretti of the Fine Arts Department of Mercersburg Academy will hang the show on Monday, August 27, and Tuesday, August 28, all artwork needs to be brought to the lobby of the Burgin Center on Friday, August 24, Saturday, August 25, or Sunday, August 26. The art will need to be removed from the Burgin Center on Saturday, September 22, Sunday, September 23, or Monday, September 24.
We in our Society hope that you plan to participate and that you join us in the Burgin Center for a reception on Sunday, September 9, from one o’clock until four o’clock.
