EATON — Calling all artists, all mediums, and all ages!

Preble County Art Association (PCAA) is looking for art submissions for an upcoming show. The Good Things in Life is an all ages group show that celebrates the things that make us happy. This winter show is all about finding the light. PCAA is calling artists of all ages to submit work inspired by what makes you happy.

What brings up your optimism and reminds you that winter does end and the sun will shine? Do you have a favorite place, spot or vista that brings you comfort? Did you make a piece of art that makes you happy when you see it? A color that always makes you inspired when you use it? Show us! The artwork you submit can celebrate these feelings in any medium you want, but should reflect any or all of the following; Optimism, Hope, Comfort, Joy, Zeal, Warmth, Happiness, Energy, Idealism…etc. Winter can be hard and its easy to lose sight of what makes us happy, help us shine some sun on the good things in life with art.

Help us build an exhibit that radiates optimism in a world that can be all too negative at times. Let’s make this show a free for all of self-expression and contagious optimism bringing us all some winter time comfort.

Each artist is invited to submit 1-2 works following the theme, “The Good Things in Life” which will be included in the show.

There is no entry fee, however artists must be members to participate. A membership can be purchased for as low as $25 for 1 year.
