“Arts At Erlanger” Still Accepting Submissions For Tennessee Music Art Gallery Show

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

The Arts at Erlanger Committee continues to accept submissions from local artists for its next art gallery show, entitled “Tennessee Music”.   Artists may submit original pieces of any medium that can be hung on a wall, including paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, mixed media, textiles and photography, which highlight Tennessee’s unique musical identity in some way.  Deadline for submissions is this Friday. 

Entries will be accepted from artists living within a 75 mile radius of Chattanooga and must include title, medium, dimensions and price to be considered. 

“This gallery is an amazing way to not only bring a healing energy to the hospital with beautiful artistic pieces, but also to recognize local artists,” said Martica Lambiase, co-chair of the Arts at Erlanger Committee. “In addition, Erlanger’s art gallery provides tremendous exposure for local artists. The Erlanger Gallery Corridor featuring this artwork is among the busiest in Chattanooga, with thousands of people walking through every day.” 

All art in the “Tennessee Music” gallery will remain on display from Dec. 22 through April 20, 2018, and available for purchase.  The Gallery Corridor is adjacent to the D elevators in the Erlanger Baroness Hospital.  

The Arts at Erlanger committee will accept up to three high resolution jpeg images per artist for consideration.
