Multi Media Mini Show Feb/Mar


49th  Annual MULTI MEDIA MINI SHOW 2018

Mini Art Treasures!

The 49th Annual Multi-Media Mini Show, sponsored by the Redlands Art Association, will be on exhibit February 22 through March 15 at the Gallery and Art Center, 215 E. State Street, downtown, Redlands. The Grand Opening will be Friday, Feb 23 from 5 to 7 pm.

Originality, Quality, Variety    The Mini Show has been unique to the Redlands Art Association.  What makes it different is the limitation of the art piece to 14.5″ including base or frame and that all media is accepted.  For example, artists can submit photography, digital (computer) work, fiber art, drawings, glass, sculptures in wood- stone- and metal, as well as the traditional fine arts.  This jurist for the show is noted photographer, Sant Khalsa.   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.  Ms. Khalsa will choose the winners of the competition and award over $ 2000 in cash and product awards.

Any artist residing in California or a member of the Redlands Art Association may submit up to three recent pieces of work, of their original design. Entry is in person, Sunday, Feb. 18, 10am-4pm, at the RAA Sales Gallery & Art Center, 215 E. State St, downtown, Redlands. Rules and Fee structure is in the prospectus/entry form found here. The online form is typeable… really great!
