Work Requirements:

  • Theme of this month is Love: so any original work 2-D (painting, drawing, photography etc) and  3-D (ceramics, wood, etc.). Realism is not necessary so long as we can interpret love from  your work! Whether it's between family, friends, animals, or has hearts or other items/symbols about love. We ask that it be tasteful as we do have children's classes at our center.
  • Submitted work must have been made in the last 5 years. Work previously submitted in a TRA Show is fine so long as it has not won an award from TRA.
  • Any work based on photographic references: Photos must be taken by you and not by someone else on the internet, magazine or another artist (yes, even with permission). 
  • Please send images of your works to Judy Milsaps at judith5886@yahoo.com so we can use it to promote on our social media feeds and website should it win an award!

Receiving:

  • Receiving will be at the Old Hyde Park Art Center from 12-3PM on Saturday and Sunday on the dates listed above.
  • Need not be a TRA member or professional artist to enter. Students of all ages welcome to enter. 
  • Limit is 3 works of art per artist. If one piece is over 40" in either dimension, it will count as 2 entries and then the limit will be 2. For example, an artist can submit one 48" X 30" piece and one piece that measures 16" X 20". Please see flyer above for entry fees.
  • Please bring in work ready to display hanged with a frame (or gallery wrapped canvas with painted sides) and wired tightly on the back or to be displayed on a pedestal. If the wire is too long on the back (really loose) it will hang off of the wall with our hanging system.
  • No Sawtooth hangers. Hanging artwork off those or the little triangles glued to the backing board can be difficult and flimsy and does not work with our system. (see image below)
