Registration


Registration is closed

For this exhibition, members re-create or re-interpret artwork from a master artist. The  member’s piece can attempt to be an exact replica or interpretation of part or the entire selected piece. The judged show will include several prizes, including a Popular Vote. Submission will consist of the master's reference work and brief description, 50 words or less, detailing why you chose this particular work of art to copy in your special way. Visitors very much enjoy reading these descriptions! (SAMPLE: Christina’s World is probably Andrew Wyeth’s most famous work.  His style is very different from my own, so I thought this painting would be both fun and challenging. It was also my mother’s favorite painting, so it has sentimental significance to me.)
