Community Art Exhibit Rings in the New Year

Community Art Exhibit Rings in the New Year

Valdez, Alaska, November 3, 2020:The Valdez Museum is pleased to announce its first exhibit for the New Year!  Art on Your Own is a community wide art show that runs January 8 through March 7, 2021 and will showcase works by local artists in three age categories, 5-10, 11-17 and 18+. All art slated for exhibit must be created by the artist independent of class or instruction.

The show will be similar to the Museum’s recurring exhibit Celebrating Valdez Artists, last held in 2015. For 2021 this new exhibit takes the place of our annual Student Art Show. It gives local artists a chance to display their creative endeavors in a museum setting, and to share their art with the community.

Art on Your Own will feature up to 54 pieces, with one entry per artist. The Valdez Museum & Historical Archive is currently soliciting artwork that must be made within the past year. Artists must not have had solo exhibitions previously at VMHA within the past three years. The deadline to submit artwork to the Valdez Museum on Hazelet is 5 pm on December 21, 2020. For specific details you can download the Art on Your Own Submission Form here.

We invite all community members to come in and view the exhibit as the Valdez Museum continues to ensure a safe, healthy and enriching environment for our visitors. Please join us for an Opening Celebration on January 9, 2021 from 2- 4 pm at the Valdez Museum Egan Commons and outside.

We look forward to seeing you at the Museum in January, and to showcasing the independently-produced creations by Valdez’s impressively talented artists.
