Aug 15 or 16 TBD  Columbus Academy Art Show Drop Off:

Show Chairperson is Justin Collamore:  justin@collamorebuilt.com

 

Three pieces per artist. The preference is that one of them be of the Columbus Academy campus and the others could be some view of an Ohio nature scene. 

THEY MUST BE PLEIN AIR PAINTINGS or DRAWINGS.  It's not too late to go to the campus on your own and create art for the show... the campus is open 7 days a week to the public during the summer.

Justin has graciously offered to take in show art prior to these official dates at his home residence.

Drop off for the Columbus academy show will be Monday August 15 from 12- 3 at Columbus Academy gallery, or at Justin's house, 1788 Guilford Rd, Columbus, OH 43221 on Saturday the 13 in the afternoon. Members could also bring their pieces to Scioto Audubon on Saturday morning August 6 and he will collect them there.
