IMAGE Art Show 2021

Authored on
IMAGE Art Show

This is the 34th 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 ECRAC will host the show online followed by a showing of award winning artwork in July 2021 at the ECRAC gallery in Hinckley, where Best in Show will be judged and announced.

There is no fee to participate in IMAGE. However, artists wishing to exhibit a work of art in the IMAGE Art Show must read and complete this online entry form and submit it before or on the deadline date of June 15, 2021.
