El Segundo Art Assoc sponsors two art shows each year which are open to members. Membership can be purchased when art is entered. We have all levels of artists some world famous and some even knew to the community. We are especially interested in attracting children of all ages and abilities and have children's categories. There is no fee to enter, so each competition one may enter two self-chosen pieces of art (any media and nearly any size), plus one special category piece which fits the show theme. We have judging by outside judges after all pieces are received and awards are made in about 8 categories. Photography is a single category and we still don't have a digital category--yet. Awards are ribbons for the first three bests in category and occasionally some honorable mentions.
A committee hangs the pictures in the library and they are normally on display for 30 days. Art may be sold if desired.
This is a mature but fun-loving group and lots of lore is exchanged and friends made. El Segundo Art Association has been in existence for about 16 years and has a wonderful association with the community.
