Discover small-format works of art at the Redlands Art Association’s mini multimedia show – Redlands Daily Facts

There’s still time to catch the Redlands Art Association’s 53rd Annual Multimedia Mini-Show, featuring small-format artwork.

The exhibit is on view through Tuesday, March 29 at the Redlands Art Association Gallery, 215 E. State St., and there is no admission charge.

The Mini Multimedia Show is unusual in that all media is accepted, but artwork is limited in size to a maximum of 14.5 inches on each side, including the base or frame. The show is open to all California artists and members of the Redlands Art Association, according to a press release.

For this year’s exhibition, 116 artists submitted 286 pieces, of which 185 were chosen for display.

The juror for the exhibition was Munro Galloway, Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of Redlands.

“I tried to make a selection that represented the range of different artworks submitted,” Galloway wrote in his juror affidavit.

“I looked at painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, collage, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, glass and jewelry, among others. The bulk of the work submitted was painting, which also makes up the majority of the exhibit, but there are fine examples of artwork in all other media as well,” Galloway wrote.

Galloway awarded the top prize to Jeff Owens of Redlands for his “Untitled, Series 4” summary.

Second prize went to Sandy Davies of Redlands for her multimedia painting “The Thought Crossed My Mind”, and third prize went to Teri Adams of Redlands for her multimedia painting “Pondering”.

The Jury’s Choice Awards went to Darrell Harris and Jan Harvey and the Excellence Awards went to Robert Boatman and LW Krebs.

Other recipients are Madeline Blua, who received the Joan Wiley Memorial Award; Denise Hawkins, the Doris Cook Memorial Award; and Ed Sotello, the Past Presidents Award.

Watercolor West donates a $50 prize each year for the best in watercolor, and this year’s prize went to Pat Meeker.

Honorable mentions went to Mary Gehley, Sally Sherlock, Dean Spencer and Cindy Sullivan.

The Redlands Art Association Gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday and visitors are asked to wear face masks.
