The Rock Island Art Guild Fine Arts Exhibition has been organized by the Guild since 1970 and hosted for the last six years by the Figge Art Museum. Artists living within 200 miles of the Figge working in any medium, including sound, performance, video, painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, and works on paper, are invited to apply and submit up to three works for consideration. Juror Susan Watts, Owner of Olson-Larsen Galleries in Des Moines, will select the works for the exhibition and choose the award winners.
Awards for first and second place, the Sally MacMillan Watercolor Award, the Founder’s Award, the Zeivel Harris Sculpture Award, the People’s Choice Award, the Children’s Choice Award, and the Honorable Mention Award will be presented on March 3. There will also be a new $300 “New Media Award” presented to an artist working in video, sound, or digital art.
CALL FOR ENTRIES NOW OPEN THROUGH JANUARY 16, 2022
This exhibition is made possible through the generous sponsorship of the Rock Island Art Guild.
