Ten Nebraska artists were selected to be featured in Nebraska Rural Living’s new online art gallery that launched in August.
The selected artists hail from Meadow Grove in northeast Nebraska to McCook in southwest Nebraska. The artists’ work is showcased in the new Fine Art in Towns Under 10,000 online art gallery at http://nebraskaruralliving.com/art-gallery/, where Nebraska Rural Living readers from around the globe can enjoy and purchase the art.
Nebraska Rural Living set out to find talented rural artists who tell the story of rural Nebraska through their paintings, photographs, sculptures and drawings. Seventeen artists from across the state submitted artwork during the first call for entries.
Art was juried by professional artists, and 10 were selected for the gallery during this first round.
The goal of the gallery is to give artists a platform to share and sell their art while at the same time increase knowledge and appreciation of life in rural Nebraska.
Art will be accepted throughout the year for future consideration for the gallery. Submissions will be juried each quarter with the following deadlines: November 1, February 1, May 1 and August 1. New artists will be added each quarter if selected.
To submit pieces for review, artists must have a Nebraska address in a rural town with a population of 10,000 or less. For rules and criteria and to submit art to be juried for the online gallery visit nebraskaruralliving.com/fine-art.
