18 Jan RAA to hang new exhibit of member artwork at Gateway on February 5
Rossmoor Art Association (RAA) members are invited to submit up to three pieces of their current artwork for exhibit and sale at Gateway from February 5 to June 4, 2017.
New works will be taken in from 10 a.m. until noon in the Oak Room at Gateway on Sunday, February 5.. Paintings and drawings in all media are welcome.
The preferred size for artwork to hang at Gateway 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 in 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 proportionately 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 membership directory or the website for contact information.
Members who currently have artwork hanging at Gateway are asked to pick up their pieces between 10 a.m. and noon on Sunday, February 5. Those who cannot pick up their own artwork during those hours should make arrangements with a friend to retrieve their works at that time.
Anyone submitting artwork must 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 exhibiting artwork.
