Reception & Awards Presentation: Art Connection Members Exhibition

July 16, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| Free

Two and three dimensional art works by artists of all ages are on view as part of the Art Connection visual arts membership program. During this awards ceremony, prizes will be presented in three categories: Youth, Non-Professional and Professional with an overall “Best of Show” prize also awarded.  A bonus Family Funday and concurrent receptions for the exhibitions on display in the Focus, Dupree Lobby and Carpenter Lobby galleries will also be held!

Thematic Challenge: All You Need is Love & Art
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of “The Summer of Love” and Irving Arts Center’s “Summer of ’17,” participating artists were  invited to create artwork which explores the theme of “All You Need is Love & Art.” Characterized by the spirit of revolution and social change, the 1960s were a turbulent and exciting time.  Through the works of those artists who chose to find inspiration in this theme, we hope to capture a bit of the culture, music and art of this most groovy decade.   Special prizes will be awarded to member artists who chose to compete in this category.
