North Central Missouri College calls for artists

For the Constitution-Tribune

A collection of works by area artists will begin the 2021-2022 exhibition schedule in the Dorris Rider Art Gallery at North Central Missouri College (NCMC) in Trenton.  “Local Artists Showcase 13” will open on Tuesday, Aug, 31 and run through Oct. 8.

Artists can submit up to two pieces of original art that have not previously been shown in the Rider Gallery.  Any media is acceptable, but some pieces may not be accepted due to size constraints or content.  Artwork may be delivered Friday, Aug. 27 from 12:-3 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 28 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m., and any time before by appointment. 

“The Local Artists Showcase is always one of the high points of the year in the gallery,” said Gallery Director Jim Norris.  “And I think this time around will be even more special since we weren’t able to do the show last year due to the pandemic.”

For more information, please contact Norris at 357-6345 (office) or 660-635-2189 (cell), or by email at jnorris@mail.ncmissouri.edu.

The Rider Art Gallery is located in the Frey Administrative Center on the NCMC campus.  Regular hours are 8:30 a.m., to 4:30 p.m., Monday- Friday, as well as selected weekend and evening hours by appointment.
