"Tropical" Gallery Show at the Capri March through June, 2018


Art Exhibition March through June Theme is Tropical

Greetings, this is Monica Martin from the Homestead Center for the Arts (HCA). Please see below for information about the upcoming art show at the Capri Restaurant.

Jimmy Accursio, owner of the Capri Restaurant, has a long standing, deep appreciation for the arts. His mother, Marlon Accursio, was a fine artist in her own right. We are very grateful to Mr. Accursio for being a patron of the arts and for supporting our cause here at the HCA.

Event Promotion: The gallery area in the restaurant plays host to an array of events and meetings throughout the year, thus exposing our artwork to a multitude of individuals. Mr. Accursio has agreed to help promote this exhibition to the public, both inside and outside the establishment, using print and web media in the weeks leading up to the event.

The theme for the March show is Tropical
(Looking ahead, the June, 2018 theme will be Artist choice).

Membership: Participant must be a Homestead Center for the Arts (HCA) member. Non-members may join via our website: www.homesteadcenterforthearts.com. There is a $20 annual membership fee. Please visit our website and see the benefits of being a member of HCA.

Artwork Medium: Acceptable artwork shall be:  original, 2 dimensional, and include drawings, paintings, photography, and digital art. Three dimensional art is prohibited due to spatial restrictions. Artwork must be properly framed or gallery wrapped and wired for hanging. Designated allowable sizes include the frame (minimum 10 x 20, maximum 40 x 40 with weight restrictions). Arrangement and hanging of artwork is the right and responsibility of the HCA show committee. The Capri will provide the necessary wall hooks.
