Full Prospectus:

The intent of this exhibition is to engage viewers in an exciting-ambitious-experimental-traditional-new-materials/traditional-materials exhibition of both paintings and drawings. Many artists do both paintings and drawings but tend to show only one or the other.  We are looking for large works as well as small. We will include one or more of the drawings submitted by each chosen artist AND also one or more of their paintings.  All selected drawings will be exhibited on one floor of the Cultural Center, and all paintings will be exhibited on the other floor, so each artist will have work on both floors.

Each artist may submit up to 3 drawings and up to 3 paintings for one entry fee. The submitted paintings and drawings may be related or they may be completely unrelated. They may be part of a series, or be individual works.

We seek a variety of works from experimental to more traditional in all media. Only original work will be accepted.

The medium does not determine if a work is a painting or a drawing. There could be oil drawings and pencil paintings! It is up to the submitting artist to determine what is a drawing and what is a painting, and to label each work as such by including the word “Drawing” or “Painting” in the title.

Open to all artists 18 years and older.
