During the GSAA "year" (from September to May) we hold two different art shows and sales to showcase the talents of our members and visiting artists, the Winter Art Show and the Spring Fling Art Show.
Color Your World - A Virtual Art Show
June 2 - June 6, 2020
The GSAA will be hosting a virtual art show on the GSAA Facebook page from June 2 through June 6, 2020, organized by GSAA member Tina Gagnon. There are no fees to enter into this show. Deadline for submissions of artwork is May 31st (see below for how to enter).
A judge will award the prizes of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Honorable Mention. Note as with our traditional shows, once an entry wins any award in any of our shows, it may not be resubmitted for judging again. If it does not win an award, it can be resubmitted for judging in future shows. People will also be able to vote “by likes” for their favorite piece of artwork so someone will receive a People’s Choice Award. Please note that all the awards will be virtual, but you will certainly have bragging rights!
How to Enter into the Show
You may enter 1 piece of artwork as a jpeg photo and send it to Tina at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, title of work, size, medium, and whether or not this piece of art is for sale.
When sending the jpeg photo, please send it in “actual size” format. Also, if you have a photo that comes out slightly dark when you take it, please let Tina know and she will be able to make an adjustment before posting it online. Note that a GSAA logo on each piece of artwork submitted in order to protect it from being used by someone else.
2020 Spring Fling Art Show & Sale
UPDATE, March 16, 2020: Due to concerns with the coronavirus and safety for our GSAA members and community, we have decided to cancel our upcoming Spring Fling Art Show & Sale originally scheduled for April 4th. Please contact us at email@example.com for any questions or concerns you may have with this decision.
