08 Nov New juried exhibit at Creekside on December 4
Members of RAA are asked to bring their artwork to the Fairway Room at Creekside between 10 and 11:30 a.m. for jury selection. Each artist may submit up to three pieces. Paintings from the current exhibit will be returned to the artists at that time also.
With each show, a new and impartial professional artist selects work based on artistic quality, creativity and how it meets the criteria of the Art Association and Golden Rain Foundation.
Rossmoor resident and Bay Area artist Jacci Osborn will select the artwork for the show, which opens on December 4 and runs through March 2018. Osborn will also be the guest artist at the RAA Soirée on Wednesday, November 15 at 7 pm in the Fireside Room at Gateway. His work will be on display during the evening.
All original painting and drawing media is welcome: oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor, drawing, collage, etc. No computer-generated images, religious imagery or nudity will be accepted.
Artwork should be between 14- by 18-inches and 30- by 30-inches. However, one larger work will be selected for display in the Event Center.
The back of each painting must be clearly labeled with the artist’s name, the title of the painting, the medium, the price and a contact phone number or email address.
A completed Liability Release form specific to the Creekside venue must accompany each submission. Forms are available online at www.rossmoorart.com and in Art Studio 1.
Neatly secured wiring is required on all pieces submitted for display. (No saw-tooth hangers will be accepted.) The artwork should be presented in simple gallery-type framing with neutral-colored and proportionately sized mats. Unframed work on canvas should be finished on all sides to harmonize with the work.
Refer to Exhibit Guidelines printed on page 8 of the RAA handbook, posted on the Art Studio bulletin board or online at www.rossmoorart.com.
Members bringing in work will agree to return in the afternoon promptly at 2 p.m. to pick up pieces that are not selected for the exhibit.
All artists who submit work must be members of RAA. Membership applications are available in Art Studio One or online. Annual dues are $10.00. Checks should be made payable to R.A. and sent to 1001 Golden Rain Road, Walnut Creek, CA 94595 or placed in the Art Association mailbox in the Gateway Administration Office. There is no other charge for exhibiting artwork.
