Arts Alive Releases 2019 Art Gallery Show Themes

Arts Alive is asking local artists to join their next gallery show, “Beautiful Chaos,” which will be installed in Tibbits Opera House’s art gallery in January.

Artists are free to submit up to three pieces at $5 per submission. Paintings, photographs or drawings should be ready to hang using hanging wire. Sculpture or other mediums are accepted and encouraged as well. While the theme is “Beautiful Chaos” it is totally up to the artist to interpret the theme as they see fit.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top artists based on audience votes.  Artists can also sell their work on commission.

In order to be included in this art show, please drop off all pieces to the Tibbits Administration Office on 93 W. Chicago St by January 11 at 4:30 pm. “Beautiful Chaos” will be displayed at Tibbits until March 8, after which time artists can come collect their work.

The gallery shows rotate approximately every six weeks. Other themes for the 2019 gallery shows include “Down on the Farm,” “Technicolor Tribute,” “I Feel Pretty,” “Creatures of Habit,” and “Home for the Holidays.”

The art gallery currently features artwork by area artists who submitted pieces for “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” During winter, the art gallery is open by appointment, one hour prior to all events held at Tibbits, and during those events. There is no admission charge for the gallery and visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite artwork.
