Social Lodge 86, Humboldt Lodge 42, Terre Haute Lodge 19 and Terre Haute York Rite are hosting the exhibition in conjunction with the temple’s annual open house, including tours by 50-year Freemason Jerry Burns.
The juried competition is open to artists 18 and older. Art must be entirely original, completed within the last three years and not previously exhibited at a juried RCAA show.
First-, second- and third-place and honorable mention prizes will be awarded in four categories: Ink/Pencil/Pastel; Watercolor/Oil/Acrylic; Mixed Media/3D; Photography/Digital Art.
Juror Ray Chen, executive director of Halcyon Contemporary Art Gallery, will select winners in each category as well as the Best of Show.
All two-dimensional artwork must be suitably framed and wired for hanging. Art with “sawtooth hangers” and “clip frames” will not be accepted. Gallery-wrapped canvas paintings or photographs will be accepted. RCAA reserves the right to reject work that is not suitably framed or is not suitable subject matter for public display.
Entry fees are $20 for members and $30 for nonmembers, for up to three entries per artist. The entry fee must accompany an entry form and is nonrefundable. The nonmember fee includes a one-year membership in RCAA.
