Hilltop Gallery seeks entries for exhibit

Hilltop Art Gallery in Nogales will host a Corona Art Exhibit later this month to highlight work done by at-home artists during the summer of 2020.

Everyone is invited to bring a piece of their art – painting, drawing, weaving, sculpture, sewing, carving, knitting, flowers, quilts etc. – to the gallery from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 12-14 or Aug. 17-20 to enter the “casual display” in the Main Gallery at no cost.

Entry forms will be available at the gallery at the time of entry, and the exhibit will go on display Aug. 24-31.

Paintings can be framed or unframed, as long as there is a wire on the back for hanging. Drawings should be matted or able to be pinned up. Sewing and quilts will be pinned up, and sculptures should be able to stand securely.

The gallery is located at 730 Hilltop Drive, just east of Sage and Marina streets. Call (520) 287-5515 or (520) 604-8730 for information.

Hilltop Gallery asks artists and art viewers to wear masks and practice social distancing.
