Escondido Art Association to host Adult Student show in November

The Escondido Art Association will host its annual Adult Student Art Show during November at the Artists Gallery on 121 W. Grand Ave., Escondido.  

This show is being sponsored through a grant from the Escondido Rotary Club and provides opportunities for adult students in North County San Diego to show their artwork and participate in the monthly competition on equal terms with members of the EAA.  

A call to artists is being extended to sister organizations and art classes in the North County area.

An entrant is considered an adult student artist if he/she is currently enrolled in an art class or has attended an art class, workshop, EAA or other artist demonstration in the past year.  

Member and non-member artists alike may enter up to three pieces of artwork at an entry fee of $10 for the 1st piece and $5 for the 2nd and 3rd pieces.  The show will be judged by prominent artist Chuck McPherson in three experience categories:  A=beginning artists (1 through 3 years);  B=Intermediate & Advanced artists (4 through 6 years);  and C=Master and Pro-Master (7 years and above.)

Drop-off of artwork is Saturday, November 2, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. or Monday, November 4, 4–6 p.m.  Art pick-up is Saturday, November 30, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.   A reception will be held on Second Saturday, November 9, from 5 – 8 p.m., with the Awards Ceremony taking place at 6 p.m.  Prizes will be awarded in each of the three categories (A, B & C), as well as a Best of Show award.   Awards are as follows:  Best of Show = $50;  First Place = $25;  2nd Place =15;  3rd Place = $10.
