The Irving Arts Association’s 12th Annual Wildlife & Domestic Animal Juried Art Competition opened Sep. 03 at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving.
This year, wild and domestic animal artworks are combined, and it works beautifully. Expect to be astounded at the quality of art selected and judged by juror, Priscilla Krejci. The quality and variety of art from artists across the U.S. is amazing. From lions and bobcats to dogs and birds, there is an animal for everyone. Drawings, pastels, watercolors, oils, acrylics and mixed media are represented in the exciting collection.
The show runs until Sep. 28. The public is invited to an awards reception on Sunday afternoon, Sep. 8, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the center. Exhibit catalogs are provided with four-color photographs of each artwork and a price list.
