  • ⇒ Call for Entries: 10x10 Challenge
    February 7-March 4, 2018

    Regional artists and craftspeople in all media are invited to participate in 10x10, a juried creative challenge exhibition sponsored by Friends of Franklin Park Arts Center. 10x10 will feature creative works using a 10 x 10 inch canvas provided by the Arts Center as a starting point. From there you can paint directly on the canvas, create a mixed media piece, affix a painting to the canvas, build a sculpture on it….get inspired! The piece must use the 10 x 10 inch canvas as a base but beyond that, let your imagination soar!

    Friends-sponsored art shows are designed to intrigue and inspire artists to explore and create pieces beyond their usual subject, style or media. Cash prizes will be awarded in the amounts of $100 each for Best in Show, A Perfect Ten, and Friends Choice.

    Challenge pieces may be submitted to Franklin Park Arts Center on February 5 & 6, 2018. 10x10 will be on display in the Gallery from February 7-March 4, 2018. The public is invited to a reception for participants on Wednesday February 7th from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. Submitting artists who attend the reception will receive a ticket to the Rainier Trio Concert that immediately follows the reception.
