Rotating Artwork Program at the EVCC

The Estes Valley Community Center is a destination for local residents and visitors to our community. To provide yet another way for the community to be a part of the facility, we have established a  public gallery area on the lower-level lobby of the Estes Valley Community Center.

The gallery will contain a collection of 15 to 25 pieces of wall art that will rotate quarterly with the first show running from late February to the end of June 2018.

 

The First Show
The first show features photographs that have a theme of local inspiration. EVRPD sent out a photo call for photographs that represent our beautiful community and region. The submissions included wildlife, wildflowers, landscapes, recreation, downtown scenes and architecture. An internal committee selected 22 images to hang in the show, which will run from the opening of the community center in late February through the end of June 2018.

The Second Show

The second show for the Estes Valley Community Center will run from July 2018 through the end of September. This show will feature photographs of wildlife in Estes Valley and Rocky Mountain National Park by the members of the Front Range Wildlife Photographers.

How to Enter Work for Consideration
To have your work considered, submit no more than three images per person by 10 a.m. Friday, June 1 to dawn@evrpd.com with the subject line: FRWP Show. Include in the email the name of the photographer, image title, subject of image and where the photo was taken. You must be a member of the Front Range Wildlife Photographers to be considered for this juried show.

Image files should be no larger than 10MB each and cannot contain watermarks or other identifying marks revealing the identity of the artist.

Selection Process
Images will be juried at the community center the week of June 4 and selected artists will be notified by June 8, 2018. Artists will need to deliver their professional-quality prints to the Estes Valley Community Center (660 Community Drive) between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on June 29. Final artwork can be in any medium and can be up to 16 by 20 inches but must include wire and D-rings for hanging. Artwork must remain on display for the entirety of the show. You may not remove pieces early for any reason.
