PALMDALE – The Palmdale Playhouse and Legacy Commons for Active Seniors are calling for artists to participate in the seventh annual Generations juried art contest and exhibition.
Generations is a competition for local artists to enter for the opportunity to display their art publicly. It is open to artists of all ages and there is no fee to enter. Interested persons may apply online at https://cityofpalmdale.org/Generations. The deadline to apply is Aug. 1.
Generations Juried Art Contest is a recreation-based exhibit. First, second, third, and honorable mention place prizes will be awarded in four age categories: 12 and younger, 13 through 17 years, 18 through 54, and 55 years and older. Selected artists will be notified by Aug. 8 if their art has been accepted. Artists will be asked to drop off their art to the Palmdale Playhouse on Aug. 15, between 12 p.m. (noon) and 7 p.m.
“Encouraging and inspiring artists through the generations, this exhibit combines the next generation of artist with the existing artists in the community,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “We look forward to seeing the talents of our local artists on display for all to enjoy.”
