Truckee business accepting submissions for amateur art show

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Are you an artist at heart? Now is your chance to share your creative masterpieces with others.

The Office BOSS Mail Center in Truckee is accepting submissions for its upcoming amateur art show: pARTicipate. This year’s theme is “Spirit of the Sierra.”

“We are inviting amateur artists of all ages to submit their artwork in one of two age categories: 14-and-under and 15-and-up,” said pARTicipate event planner and local artist Brian Shepp.

Send a photograph of your favorite work in any medium (paint, pencil, photography, collage, whatever) along with a short description about the work and the artist to by Friday, March 27.

Roughly 20 finalists will be announced on Wednesday, April 8.

Pieces chosen as finalists will be on display at The Office BOSS Mail Center (11260 Donner Pass Road, next to the Truckee Safeway) from April 13 to mid-May.

A jury of local, professional artists will select winners in each category, to be announced at a fun pARTicipate reception at The Office BOSS Mail Center on Thursday, April 16.

Winners will receive an 18” x 24” gallery-mounted print on canvas of an image of their choice (a $130 value). Runners-up will receive gift certificates for art supplies, and all finalists in attendance will receive an art goodie bag.

“I often speak with art hobbyists who are buying supplies,” Shepp said. “But I rarely get to see their final artwork, so I’m looking forward to seeing our community’s creativity. I’m sure we’ll be amazed and inspired.”
