Real People 2011 Exhibition

Every August/September, the Old Court House Figurative League presents a national juried figurative show, "Real People – Celebrating the Arts through Faces and Figures." The exhibition serves a two-fold purpose: To spotlight figurative artwork with this outstanding exhibition and offer substantial cash prizes to the artists. Funds from the exhibition also allow the Figurative League to offer a year-round program of life drawing at reasonable rates for members and guests.

This year 80 pieces were accepted from the 418 pieces submitted by just under 200 artists from across the US (including Alaska and Hawaii) and Canada.

Opening Reception: Saturday Aug. 27, 7-9 pm
The reception coincides with the Woodstock Jazz Festival. For more information, please visit, and click on the 'Festival' button.
