Irving Arts Center is proud to announce a new online art microsite, IACOnlineArt.com. The website features all kinds of great engaging content including virtual exhibitions and 360-degree gallery tours, as well as calls for entry of artists interested in exhibiting their work.
The first call for entry to be featured at the new site is for Irving Arts Center’s 20th annual Art Connection Members Show. Both current and new Art Connection members are invited to submit art by Aug. 16. This year’s exhibition will be an online exhibition for the first time, with eligible entries judged for cash awards in three categories: Youth, Nonprofessional and Professional. An overall “Best of Show” prize will also be awarded. IACOnlineArt.com will act as a one-stop shop, housing prospectus and entry details and later, the actual exhibition itself. Selected works will be displayed beginning Aug. 30.
