Dear Members,

We are thrilled to announce that our annual member exhibit is back! This year, the exhibition will be hosted virtually with the opportunity for artists to sell their works.

The timely theme of this year’s exhibit is “Reflection”. We encourage new works to be created with this theme in mind. Open to wide interpretation, your submissions may be as abstract or realistic as you see fit.

Why reflection?

Reflection gives the brain an opportunity to pause amidst the chaos, untangle and sort through observations and experiences, consider multiple possible interpretations, and create meaning.
At its simplest, reflection is about careful thought.

Submissions may include a wide array of art including, but not limited to: Paintings, Print making Photography, Sculptural works, and Drawing.

Please submit up to three images to be considered.

There is no entry fee for members to submit to this art show and sale. OCAC will be charging a 30% commission, with a 70% commission to artists. To submit, please complete the form before February 27, 2021 by clicking the button below.

Sincerely,

Sarah McKay
Executive Director, Orange County Arts Council
