Dear Artist,

I hope that you will be a part of this year’s Art Mirrors Culture exhibit in the Jo Ann Rose Gallery and 3D Gallery at RCC Lake Anne during September. This exhibit that honors the multi-faceted cultural heritage of our community encourages artists of all ages and backgrounds to take part. In the Jo Ann Rose Gallery, all forms of art that can be hung on a wall are welcome. In the 3D Gallery, two 30-foot walls of glass cases are waiting to be filled with ceramic, sculpture, mosaic, stained glass and other three-dimensional pieces. The 3D part of the Art Mirrors Culture exhibit will go until the November 21.

There are two Call for Entries forms, one for 2-dimensional art to be displayed in the Jo Ann Rose Gallery and another for 3-dimensional art for the 3D Gallery. They can be downloaded from on our website at or let me know and I will email one or both to you. The return date for the FORMS ONLY is Sunday, August 24 by 7:00 p.m.

If you are not sure of the names of pieces, that is fine – that information can be added when you drop off your work during either Friday, August 29, or Saturday, August 30. There is no Sunday drop off for this exhibit. There is a $2 per work hanging fee in the Jo Ann Rose Gallery for up to two pieces per person and a $1 fee per work for up to 10 pieces in the 3D Gallery.

Since this exhibit will help celebrate the Multicultural Festival on Saturday, September 27 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., please include a few words (up to 50) that describe how your piece(s) mirror your culture. Culture can be interpreted in a variety of ways, but a strong visual connection with your cultural heritage is encouraged in your work and words.

Please pass this information along to artists that you know of any age. If the drop-off days do not work for you, let me know and we can arrange another time for you to bring your work.

Please carefully review the information on the Call for Entry forms and let me know if you have any questions.
