The 53rd MULTI MEDIA MINI SHOW. March 10 through March 31, 2022
This show has been unique to the Redlands Art Association. What makes it different is that it is a juried show for artists whose art doesn’t usually get judged. Those artists whose art is chosen can put that on their art resume! All visual mediums are accepted. For example, artists can submit photography, digital (computer) art, fiber art, drawings, glass, repurposed materials compositions, sculptures in wood- stone- and metal, ETC, ETC… as well as the traditional fine arts. The limitation of the art piece is 14.5″ on any side, including base or frame. Naturally, its success has spawned similar shows, however, the MMM Show is still the only one of this scale in Southern California. The MMM Show is open to all California artists and/or RAA members. The juror for the show is Munro Galloway (bio below) who will chose the winners of the competition and awarded over $ 1400 in cash awards.
ARTISTS WITH ART IN THE GALLERY NOW will have to remove it … Gallery has to be empty for the MMM Show preparations.

MAY EXHIBIT~ Abstract ~ 5-12 to 6-9-22
Abstract art uses visual language of forms, colors, textures, and shapes to create the art piece. Maybe more of a feeling than a realistic view of the subject. “This art form has as its main objective to provide viewers with an intangible and emotional experience, being completely different for each individual depending on their personality and mood.” Lobopopart.com.
