Member art show to begin next month

Published 9:22 am Tuesday, December 27, 2011

The annual All-Member Show at the Albert Lea Art Center begins Jan. 10 and showcases works of members of the art center. Members are invited to enter up to three works that have not been shown previously to the Cruikshank Gallery.

This show provides an opportunity for all artists, even the artist who may not have a large body of work to exhibit. Oils, watercolor and acrylic pieces should be framed and in good condition. You must be a current member of the Albert Lea Art Center to exhibit in this show.

The show is not juried, but there will be some awards just for fun including the Sure to Be Famous Award for an emerging artist, The X Factor Award for best in show, The Wonderful, Wild and Wacky Award for originality and the Just as Good as a Spam Museum for an agriculturally-themed piece of art.
