13 May RAA hangs new exhibit of member artwork at Gateway
New works will be taken in from 10 a.m. until noon in the Oak Room at Gateway on Sunday, June 1. Members who currently have artwork hanging at Gateway are asked to pick up their pieces during the same hours. Those who cannot pick up their own work at that time should make arrangements with a friend to do so.
Paintings and drawings in all media are welcome for the Summer exhibit. The preferred size for artwork is between 14 by 18 inches and 48 by 50 inches. Images of nudes or religious icons will not be accepted.
Entry forms for the Gateway exhibit are available online at www.rossmoorart.com or in Art Studio I. Artists should complete all paperwork before bringing their artwork to Gateway.
Identification labels must be affixed to the back of each painting. Refer to the RAA exhibit guidelines posted on the Art Studio bulletin board, on page 8 of the membership directory, and online at www.rossmoorart.com.
Artwork on paper should be presented in simple, gallery-type framing. When mats are used, they should be neutral in color and proportionally sized. Paintings requiring surface protection should be covered with acrylic and not glass.
Work on canvas may be framed or unframed, but unframed work should be finished on all sides to harmonize with the work.
Neatly secured wiring is required on all pieces—no saw tooth hangers. For guidance, see the RAA membership directory or the RAA website, www.rossmoorart.com, under exhibits.
Anyone submitting artwork must live in Rossmoor and be a current member of RAA. Membership applications are available online at www.rossmoorart.com or in Art Studio 1.
Annual dues are $10. Checks should be made payable to RAA and sent to 1001 Golden Rain Road or placed in the Art Association mailbox in the Gateway Administration office. There is no other charge for members to exhibit artwork.
