CIAA to hold members show
The Conanicut Island Arts Association will host its 36th annual members show from Wednesday, Aug. 11, through Sunday, Aug. 15, at the Jamestown recreation center at 41 Conanicus Ave.
Entrants may register and drop works off on Monday, Aug. 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The show opens Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
For the first time in its history, the CIAA will accept members from beyond Jamestown, so the show promises to fill the community center. All media are accepted, and the art works will be judged by Newport painter William Heydt, who will choose the top three artists, as well as honorable mentions.
All prize winners and the membership’s choice of Peoples Choice Award will be announced at the opening. Celtic harpist Mary King will perform.
Artists may enter two pieces for hanging, and works must not exceed 48 inches in any dimension. Artists may also submit up to 15 unframed original works for bin placement, which may not exceed 18 inches by 36 inches.
