Juried Exhibits


Sorry we are no longer accepting submissions for the exhibit below.

Exhibit Name: The Beauty of Words

Eligibility: The exhibition is open to all AFAS artists.

Description: There is such beauty in words, how we use them to communicate our ideas, our feelings, and our emotions. Words hold power beyond their definitions. Certain words can hold special and deep meaning to people. So for our next group exhibit at The Red Dog Gallery we invite artists to submit up to 3 artworks that are inspired by, visually represent or illustrate a particular word that holds a special meaning to you as an artist and/or individual. The 3 pieces can represent different words, or the same word showing different meanings to you (showing different sides of the same coin). When submitting your work on-line you will be asked to enter 2 or 3 lines indicating the word that inspired the piece, its definition, what it means to you, and how it is interpreted in your artwork. We are allowing 3 entries per artist and placing a 500.00 limit on pricing for this show. We are encouraging smaller pieces of art with an affordable price for our patrons.
