CALENDAR FOR THE WALL DISPLAY, DECEMBER 2023 – NOVEMBER 2024

An idea for using the display wall was presented at the General Membership meeting on June 21, 2023.  There were positive reactions, so the Wall Display Committee (Lisa Henderling, John Baxter and Kate Mace) met to develop a suggested calendar, and clarify definitions. 

 

Some things will stay the same:

  • The Featured Artist will remain a monthly feature in its current location.

  • Art from the All About Art Spring, Fall Art Shows, and Creative Vision will be displayed in the month after the show.

Things to remember:

  • In most cases the last panel, to the far right will be used for the selected display.  In two cases, the entire wall (with the exception of the Featured Artist) will be used. 

  • As is always the case, flat canvases without frames will not be accepted.  The canvas must be framed, or be at least 1 1/2 “ with finished edges. 

  • Unless otherwise noted, the size of the painting or paintings submitted should not exceed 1248 square inches.

Proposed Schedule:

  • December, 2023—ANYTHING GOES! 

Artists can display traditional and non-traditional art forms, prints, giclees, fabric art---really just about anything goes!We will accommodate all art that can be hung on the wall.Collages with found objects that are securely fastened to a canvas will be accepted. Up to two pieces per artist.. 

 

  • January, 2024---NOVICE

If an artist has not displayed in All About Art before, here’s the chance.Please note:no art made in a class will be eligible.Only original paintings.  Up to two pieces per artists.

 

  • February—Creative Vision art will be hung.

For those of you who are new to Sun City and the club, Creative Vision is a collaborative show, pairing photographers and artists (and a few glasscrafters.)It is a community wide event that is held in Pinckney Hall.After the show, AAA paintings are brought back to the club room for display.

 

  • March—OVER-SIZED ART   

The framed art can weigh up to 25 pounds with a circumference not greater than 192 inches including the frame.John Baxter helped guide us through the dimensions we think we can hang.One piece per artist.

 

  • April—DIGITAL ART

The AAA Digital Art User group has been hard at work and has some phenomenal art to display. This is not art made by copying and pasting!It’s absolutely original and a true art form. This art will be accompanied with explanations, so members can learn what digital art is, and what goes into making it.Two pieces per artist.

 

  • May –Spring Art Show art will be hung—-It all depends on what dates for the shows are chosen.

 

  • June---TINY ART

Nothing will be hung that is larger than 10x10”, or a circumference of 40 inches, including the frameThere is no lower limit on size.  John Baxter guide us to determine how these will be hung.The really small paintings will be hung using a ribbon and Velcro.Two pieces per artist.

Only the last panel on the right will be used.

 

  • July---DRAWING

Charcoal, graphite, conte crayons….whatever you use to draw will be welcomed.The art must be framed for hanging.Two pieces per artist.

 

  • August---PLEIN AIR

All art will have been done outdoors, and demonstrate the capturing of light, shadows and the environment.Up to two pieces per artist

 

  • September—FABULOUS FAKES

Artists will choose familiar works as inspiration and create a fake.Each piece will be displayed with an image of the original inspiration so that viewers can compare and find the differences.Examples might be Girl with Ruby Earring—instead of pearl earring, or Mona Lisa with a mole on her cheek.One piece per artist

 

  • October---ABSTRACT

The AAA Abstract User Group and other member abstract artists will display their work together.Up to two pieces per artist.
