Spring Members Show

Exhibition Dates: March 16-April 23
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 18, 2:00-4:00 PM

RNAC seeks works of art by RNAC members featuring both representational and abstract 2D works in water media, oil, graphite, encaustic, photographs and prints; and also jewelry, ceramics and sculpture.


The exhibition (unjuried) will display the variety of work that RNAC members are doing in 2017 and reveal the variety of artistic expression and direction found in the work of RNAC artists. Both floors of the Cultural Center will be used to display art with room for approximately 30 artists submitting wall art, and for 10-3D artists on pedestals.

A curating team made up of exhibition committee members will make final choices and all choices will be final. (You, as an RNAC member, are welcome to join the committee. The committee meets regularly.) The first 30 artists to submit wall art will be guaranteed space for at least one work (depending on size); all other works will be considered as space is available.
