Should there be an age limit for an art show? No – I don’t mean for the artists, or for who can come to see the art. I mean for the art itself. Most juried art shows require work to be no more than 2 or 3 years old.
I get it – we all want to see what an artist has been up to recently, and we don’t necessarily want to see the same piece over and over again. But I have a number of pieces that have never shown and now are too old to qualify. Mainly that’s because I don’t apply to that many shows, but I would like to be able to try some of them, old as they are.
I think we’ll be trying a blend of these ideas. Perhaps there will be no age limit, but ask artists not to submit works that have shown locally (northern York Region?) before.
As I say – stay tuned! And leave your opinion – you can comment on any post be clicking its title.
