Juror: Jordan Griska

Juror's comment: “I would like to thank all of the artists who are exhibiting in the 2017 LCAA annual show. It was an honor to be involved in the show. The participants are all talented artists and it was very hard to choose the winners of the different categories. There is a great level of passion and skill displayed in the works. This show reflects the importance of organizations such as the LCAA and their support for the arts!”

The LCAA appreciates and values our senior members and have scheduled a special exhibit just for seniors. Our Senior Show will be held along with our Fall Membership Show and will feature artists 65 and over. It is open to both members and non-members, so we are asking our members to reach out to other senior artists that they know and encourage them to participate. We will have fliers that can be handed out with all the information.

Due to space, we must limit artwork to 11” by 14” or smaller (framed size). One piece per artist, any subject, medium or style are acceptable. There is a small $5 entry fee and awards will be given.
