It’s no secret that our Downtown scene is bursting with artistic talent. So why not put some of that skill to good use and enter Jana’s Red Room’s International Juried Art Competition? The prizes are just as appealing as the finished product.
The competition breaks down into nine categories from drawing and painting to ceramics, mixed media and photography. For you flexible types who specialize in a number of mediums, Jana’s allows you to submit work in more than one field. There are, however, a few conditions. The work must not be more than two years old. Submissions must be ready to hang from the get go. Pieces you submit must be salable since 30 percent of the proceeds go toward the gallery (compliments don’t pay the bills, people!)
Submissions must be made through the gallery’s competition website with a $35 entry fee. The deadline is June 15, so act quickly. If it just so happens that you can’t submit by this date, you can opt for an additional late fee, which is $25. Late deadline lasts until June 30.
Now about that prize. First, third and second place winners will have their work displayed in a September exhibit. The grand prize winner receives a solo show at Jana’s Red Room, the ability to sell his or her work on Jana’s website and more. So, what are you waiting for? Go watch some paint dry!
