This is the 35th 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 4 & 5, 2022. An online gallery of all the artwork will also be available at ECRAC.org.
