Tuesday October 31'st Noon deadline is in ONE WEEK

and we want to see your art, along with the dozens that will also enter.

This is the 36th year of IMAGE, an annual judged art show, sponsored by the East Central Regional Arts Council (ECRAC). The IMAGE Art Show has been hosted by different art groups, organizations, or group of individuals interested in the arts. In the last few years ECRAC has hosted the show at our office. The ECRAC office is now in Hinckley, MN.

This year the IMAGE Art Show will take place at the Grand Event Center in Mora, Minnesota, on November 10, 11 & 12, 2023.

There is no fee to participate in IMAGE. However, artists or culture bearers wishing to exhibit a work of visual art in the IMAGE Art Show must read and complete this online entry form and submit it before or on the deadline date of October 31, 2023, at noon. No late entries can be accepted.

If you need assistance with your entry or if you have any questions, you can leave a message at (320) 336-0200 or, preferably, email image@ecrac.org.
