The Harbor Springs Area Historical Society invites the public to submit original artwork for our summer 2018 exhibit titled Memories and Art in the Making: Celebrating the Community We Share. This juried exhibit will run from July through September 2018 at the Ephraim Shay Hexagon House at 396 E Main Street, Harbor Springs.
Individuals aged 16 and older are encouraged to submit two-dimensional artwork for the exhibit. (One piece of artwork per artist, please). Types of art which will be accepted include but are not limited to: paintings, sketches, mixed-media, and photographs. Pieces should not be larger than 24″ x 30″ and should come ready to hang.
Submissions must relate specifically to the Harbor Springs area, and artist applications are due by May 1, 2018. Detailed submission guidelines and applications are available at the Harbor Springs History Museum, 349 E Main Street or online here. The show will include cash prizes for first, second and third places.
The Shay Hexagon House, recently gifted to the Historical Society by previous owner, the late Mary Cay Jones, will serve as the exhibit’s home. Ephraim Shay, the inventor of the Shay geared locomotive, built the Hexagon House in 1892 and lived there until his death in 1916. The Historical Society is pleased to open this storied building to the community as a place where the memories and stories help celebrate the rich history of the Harbor Springs area.
