People's Art Gallery

Applications to display work in the People's Art Gallery are now closed. 

We invite everyone to see the amazing art created by our Avenues residents at the Avenues Street Fair on Saturday, September 7th, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and vote for your favorite!  One piece of art will win the People's Choice Award!

The Fair is on 2nd Avenue this year, between M and R Streets. The People's Art Gallery will be at the southeast corner of O Street and 2nd Avenue.

The People's Art Gallery is a glorious celebration of the talent and diversity we have right here in our neighborhood! We invite artists of all ages living in the Avenues to enter their work. We encourage entries of paintings, drawings, photography, jewelry and three-dimensional art.

A professional judge will award prizes in the following categories, in addition to the People's Choice Award chosen by Fair attendees. 

  • Children, age 9 and younger
  • Youth, age 10-14
  • Young Adult, age 15-18 
  • Adult Amateur
  • Adult Professional

We ask that all artwork remain on display until the last hour of the Fair. All artwork must be picked up by the artist by 6:00 p.m. Prizes are ribbons and gift certificates. Entries are due by August 15th.  

Due to space limitations, combined height and width of two-dimensional work should not exceed 60 inches. All two-dimensional work must be ready for hanging. Three-dimensional work must fit on a 30” x 72” table, and must stand alone or include a stand.

Questions about participating can be directed to People's Art Gallery Coordinator Mary Lee Walton at . 

The deadline to submit applications was August 24, 2019
