The International Museum of Art & Science will be hosting its 2nd Annual Members’ Juried Art Show this October through the end of December. The exhibition will be juried by Diane Milliken Garza, Ph.D. Executive Director, Brownsville Community Foundation Commissioner, Texas Commission on the Arts and will feature original artwork submitted by IMAS members.
“We are thrilled to be welcoming artwork from our IMAS members this year after an incredible response in 2021 for our first show. We had over 72 member artists submit over 100 artworks for the inaugural show and saw an array of talent, styles, and mediums in the exhibition,” said Amelia Whitehead, Director of Collections & Exhibitions. “This year promises to be another strong show with great interest from our membership and the community.”
Works will be juried across the entire exhibition, and awards include Best of Show ($500), second place ($300), third place ($200), and three honorable mentions ($50). An opening reception for members will be held on Saturday, October 15, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Cardenas Gallery and will include the awards ceremony at 6:00 p.m.
Participating artists must be 18 years of age or older and a museum member in good standing. Member artists may submit up to two works of art created within the past three years. One work is guaranteed to be included in the exhibition and the other may be juried in. Up to two adults from the same household may participate if they have a Family membership. No work can be larger than 4′ x 5′, must be movable by the artist, sculpture must include a base or stand, and no liquids, live plants or animals are allowed.
