“Virtual” Opening Reception on Facebook: Saturday, December 5, 2020 2P.M.
Exhibit closes: Thursday, December 31, 2020
Following the exceptional success of last year’s inaugural exhibition, this December the Rockport Art Association & Museum will again be holding an exhibition of national scope and proportions! The RAA&M National 2020 is an open invitational for artists across the United States to exhibit artwork crafted in a diverse number of media (drawing, mixed media, collage, photography, painting, digital art and sculpture) here at the Rockport Art Association & Museum. It is an opportunity to show artwork that reveals the diversity of the Creative Community around us here on Cape Ann, and an occasion to introduce new artistic influences from beyond this region to artists and the public alike.
With the extremely generous and selfless support of public institutions and private individuals over $5,000 in prize money is to be awarded for superlative works in the categories of drawing, mixed media, collage, photography, painting, digital art and sculpture. The Institution for Savings is sponsoring the show itself, while several private individuals and public institutions likeBankGloucester have elected to sponsor prizes.
Our two judges are the nationally-recognized and Cindy House (www.cindyhouse.com) for the category of traditional art, and the holder of Gordon College’s Lothlórien Distinguished Chair in the art department, Professor Bruce Herman in the category of contemporary art (www.bruceherman.com.) Through a juried selection process the artwork is judged, with winning pieces being awarded monetary prizes ranging from $250. to $1,000. apiece.
