VERGENNES - The year 2009 will be the 23rd year that the Beach family and Basin Harbor Club have hosted the Reflections on Basin Harbor juried art program.
Each year Vermont artists are invited to find inspiration amidst the natural beauty of the 700-acre resort on Lake Champlain.
This unique artist-in-residence program allows the selected artists to stay at the resort and create work that evokes the essence of Basin Harbor, the surrounding gardens, remarkable architecture and lakefront. From Aug. 21-31, the artwork is displayed during the 10-day exhibit. Since the conception of this program in 1986, over 300 local artists have participated.
Interested Vermont artists are asked to submit as application: A biography. Applicable press clips or features are welcome as well. Six or more slides of their work with a separate sheet describing size, medium used, year completed and price, or CD of the same. A self-addressed, stamped mailer to return materials after jurying.
The deadline for submission is March 1. Those artists chosen will be notified by April 1. The program includes a two-night stay with meals for the artist and guest, providing time and tableau for inspiration. Previous Reflections Artists from the 2008 show need not send materials, just a letter of intent, unless their work has changed substantially.
