Grans & Grand Kids Art Exhibit call for art

July 29th through August 24th

Get your pencils scribbling and your brushes swooshing! It is time for the old folks and the young-uns to be creative together. Intake for this exhibit will be on July 28th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. This exhibit is for IAA Members ONLY, and there is no entry fee. All media accepted, but there is very limited space for display of 3-dimensional art. Standard IAA size and weight restrictions apply. No piece larger than 36″ X 36″ or heavier than 20 lbs. will be accepted. Items must be ready to hang using wire, and must be framed, or if stretched canvas, must be back stapled (no unframed side stapled) or gallery wrapped, and must be edge painted. Multi-panel art (Diptych, Triptych, etc.) is acceptable as a single piece if the total size/weight cumulatively when hung does not exceed the 36″ X 36″/20 lbs. restrictions. Ribbon awards for First, Second, Third place, and Honorable Mention in each category, plus Best of Show, and a Special Award for Best Collaborative Work (Gran & Grankid working together on a single piece).

The purpose and spirit of this show is to bring together the young of heart with the young of years. We encourage all members to participate. If you have to borrow a neighbor’s youngster to collaborate, do it. This isn’t about blood relations. This is about the old and wise creating side by side or collaboratively with the young and restless. Maximum of 3 entries per registration.

The Reception, Ice Cream Social, and Awards Presentation will be held on August 12th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. All are invited. Bring the whole family. Bring friends. Bring neighbors.

We encourage you to preregister online for this exhibit to help us manage intake on July 28th, but we will have blank forms available on that day. We do not want any member excluded from participating.

Online Preregistration (optional)
