Capture the Molok: A Still Life Competition

July 28 – Sept 9

In conjunction with our ongoing exhibit, the Molok, Bottle Works is hosting a still-life competition. Prospective artists are invited to come make still life studies of the gallery’s new resident monster and it’s composite parts over the course of the Molok’s stay in Johnstown. At the end of the exhibit, Bottle Works’ staff and the Molok’s creators will judge the works created and the grand prize winner will receive a tuition voucher good for 1 Bottle Works class (valued up to $50). Participating artists will have the option of adding their work to the construction of the Molok as it travels through the country. 

One submission per artist for consideration. Open to all ages.

Interested artists may visit the Molok anytime during normal museum hours Tue 10-4, Wed-Fri 10-7, Sat 10-3 or may join us during the 3rd Avenue Folk & Arts Fest on August 5, 6, & 7.
