Gallery Closed Until Further Notice
Until further notice the Kendall Gallery will close due to health concerns over the Coronavirus. Fort Concho has elected to post pone their April show. We feel this will allow us the ability to close the gallery for health and safety. The health and welfare of our members is our priority at this time. Please email us with any questions or concerns you have.

Non-members $20.00 per entry or 3 entries for $50 (30% commission on sales)

Please note: For this show there will be a 3 entry limit per artist of paintings completed within the last 3 years.
Art that has been entered previously in a SAAC exhibition and not won an award, may only be entered a second time.
THREE SUBJECT CATEGORIES:
#1) ‘Scapes: Landscapes, Cityscapes & Seascapes
#2) Still Lifes &/or Objects
#3) Animals &/or People
All paintings must be done either in oil, watercolor or acrylic and be “realistic” in style, per the Myers bequest. An artist may receive award money for only one place in each category. In addition, if a “Best of Show” is awarded, it will be counted as a winner in whatever subject category it fits while still leaving 3 other winners in that category. (So, a “Best of Show” win takes that artist out of further contention in that category only.) ELIGIBILITY & SPECIFICATIONS: All entries must be realistic & original, executed without supervision. Copies of professional photographs are not considered your original work. A panel of three Members will be accepting all entries in accordance with the regulations for C. Russell Myers shows. The Art Club reserves the right to refuse any entry not in good taste or not in compliance with SAAC regulations. “Realistic” is defined as a 12-year old knowing what the subject matter is.
