*** Please note that the drop off & reception dates have changed! Drop off will be on Wednesday and Thursday (with extended hours).

“The Child Within” is a collaborative show which invites artists to see the world again through the eyes of a child and be inspired.  Participants may select a piece from our database of works provided by young artists at Locust Street Elementary, which will serve as a starting point for their own creative interpretation.  Artists will then re-imagine, recreate, or elaborate on the visual prompt provided by their child collaborator.  See where your creativity might take you if you allow the honestly, intuition, and pure wonder of a child’s imagination be your muse and your guide.

Things to remember:
-Artists may submit one piece of work for this show.
-ALL WORK must be wired and legibly signed on the back prior to drop off at CAL. 3D work must be clearly labeled and prepared for presentation.
- Everyone must pay an entry fee. Entry fees help cover costs of the Opening Reception and hiring a juror.
- Work submitted cannot be juried out from a previous show.
- Work must be clean (no dirt, dust, hair, etc.) prior to drop off.

  • Each person gets to choose one picture to use as an inspiration for their artwork. You choose a piece by selecting it and purchasing the entry fee for that image. That image will then be no longer available for anyone else to use. Only those who have selected a piece and paid the entry fee will be entered into this show.

  • This is a juried show, so picking a piece and paying your entry fee does not guarantee your artwork will be in the show.
