CALL FOR ENTRY: Summer Exhibit

Entries accepted: June 1st  – August 24th 

Exhibition: June 20th  – September 19th 


The theme for this exhibit: “This Is Fun!”


What is fun? Lots of things are fun. Art is fun! AND we want you to create artwork showing us what YOU think is fun! All summer long we will be accepting artwork based on the idea of FUN.

All people of all ages are invited to create work for this exhibition. We want to display as much artwork as possible! This will be an ongoing exhibit throughout the summer.

This is exciting. This is art. This is everyone. This is fun!


We will display as much work as possible within the glass cases of the Square Foot Gallery. However, if the number of submissions is too great, we may have to display works on the walls of the surrounding area. One submission per artist, please. For this exhibit, please limit your submissions to artwork on paper, and we will not be returning the artwork to the artists.

Thank you, and have FUN!



All styles and media will be accepted, but work must be on paper, or cardstock, and 2 dimensional, sized within 12”wide x 12”high x 1”deep. If they wish, artists may pick up 12” x 12” paper upon which to create their art at the Youth Services information desk.   All submissions must be original works of art. Submissions must be dropped off in person. Artwork will be hung by the best method determined by staff.



Works delivered to RPL: June 1st  – August 24th 

Notification of acceptance: All artwork following guidelines will be accepted.  

Works displayed: June 20th – September 19th
