Categories:   watercolor/acrylics/pastel/mixed media/oil/drawing-pencil/sculpture/ceramics/photography

1st entry=$10.00, 2nd & 3rd entries $5.00 each per category.  (For example:  I’m entering three in watercolor and three in mixed media, so that will cost me $40.00. )

For the Winter Members Show we have a studio set aside for miniatures.

Artists can enter up to 10 at $2.00 each.  They must not be any larger than 12 inches in any direction, including the frame.  So the largest a framed miniature could be is 12X12″.
