Members Exhibition M-Z 2020 Prospectus and Entry

Dear Members,

We hope you are all healthy and safe and we miss you! The Art League will remain closed until the County Health Services Agency tells us otherwise, so we are taking our presence online. We are excited to invite you to submit artworks to the Member’s Exhibition M-Z 2020, the online version: we are planning to make it in an exciting and engaging way for our audiences to interact with you. We warmly invite you to come on this new journey with us.

What will this online engaged art exhibition experience look like?

• Members M-Z’s artworks will be put into an online “gallery” on our website (with links to your website and/or social media), where artworks can be sold (we will handle shipping/delivery).
• The virtual gallery will open on First Friday, September 4, and stay open for a while, to increase the opportunities for sales.
• We will host a virtual, First Friday event with an artist talk, SIP style!
• For five weeks, via social media and digital newsletter, an artist from the exhibition will be highlighted
weekly, with more information about the artwork(s) and artist
• In addition, we will be hosting weekly artist talks via Zoom and Facebook Live, giving everyone an opportunity to meet you and learn about your background, creative processes, etc.

We hope that this year’s Member’s Exhibition M-Z will prove to brings us closer as a creative community through sharing experiences and talks, than ever before.
