ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Arts Council will present the neXt gallery – a pop-up art gallery program – in July.

Visual and film artists are invited to submit their work for jurying. Selected artists will be featured in pop-up galleries, beginning July 9, and running through Aug. 2. An opening reception will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. July 9.

The pop-up galleries will feature multiple visual art/film displays at venues in St. Charles. Entries can be in any style or medium.

The jury fee is $20 for nonmembers of the arts council, regardless of the number of pieces submitted. Fees can be mailed to the St. Charles Arts Council, 2 E. Main St., St. Charles, IL 60174.

Those interested in submitting artwork should review instructions to submit an electronic entry. There is no form to fill out. For each submitted image, the artist needs to include the title of the piece, medium, dimensions and selling price in the email. The requested information and images of the work wanting to be featured in the gallery event should be emailed by noon June 19 to ArtistLiaison@StCharlesArtsCouncil.org.

Artists may submit up to 10 pieces for jurying, and jurors may select one or more pieces from each artist. Artists will be notified of the juries’ selections by June 27.
