15 Nov RAA Creekside exhibit to change December 5
Members of the 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 is brought into Rossmoor to select work based on artistic quality, creativity and how it meets the criteria of the Art Association and Golden Rain Foundation. Bay Area figurative artist Toby Tover will select the artwork for the show opening on December 5 and running through the end of March, 2017.
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 X 18 inches and 30 X 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 One.
Neatly secured wiring is required on all pieces submitted for display (no saw tooth hangers). 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 submitting work for display must be members of R.A.A. Membership applications are available in Art Studio One or online. Annual dues are $10.00. Checks should be made payable to R.A.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.
