50th Annual Multi Media Mini Show

50th Annual Multi Media Mini Show


Get back to your studio and make us some art for the 50th Annual Multi Media Mini Show, Redlands Art Association’s juried art show .

The Mini Show is unique to the Redlands Art Association.  What makes it different from all other judged exhibits is:

1) the Multi Media part of the show: artists may submit photography, digital (computer) work, fiber art, drawings, glass, sculptures in wood- stone- and metal, as well as the traditional fine arts-oils, watercolor-acrylic-pastels, etc., etc. and

2) the Mini part: the size limitation of the art piece to 14 ½ ” including base or frame (like it must fit in a 14 ½” cube).


Any artist residing in California or a member of the Redlands Art Association may submit up to three recent original pieces of work. No membership necessary. All work must be for sale.

Entry is in person, Sunday, Feb. 17, 2019, 10am-4pm, at the RAA Sales Gallery & Art Center, 215 E. State St, downtown, Redlands.

The art judge, Sally Strand, will choose the art to display. A native of Colorado now residing in California, Strand has been exhibiting professionally as an artist for over 35 years. Strand was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007, the highest commendation of the Pastel Society of America, NY. She is the recipient of numerous top awards, including the PSA Master Pastelist distinction and the IAPS Master Circle Medal. Her solo exhibitions in galleries and museums include a one-person retrospective of pastel and oil paintings at the Bakersfield Museum of Art in California.

Strand studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, the Art Students League and National Academy of Design in New York. She holds a BFA degree from the University of Denver and an MFA from Laguna College of Art and Design. Strand teaches workshops and master classes internationally and is widely published in books and magazines internationally.

Winners of the competition will participate in over $ 2000 in cash and product awards. The show will be on display at the Gallery through March 15.

Naturally, its success has spawned similar shows, however, the MMM Show is still the only one of this scale in Southern California. The prospectus and entry form for the show will be online and at the Gallery later this month.
