The “Old Masters” February show has always been a favorite at Foothills. All members are invited to enter this unique exhibit of reproductions of the old masters.
To qualify, your artwork must be a reproduction of an old master’s work at least one hundred years old. You may change the size and medium of your reproduction to your liking. Your artwork must show your signature followed by “d’après” and the name of the original artist. This year, please submit a 4”x 5” or 5”x 6” photo of the original which we will hang next to the painting. You can print the photo from a computer image or from a book or magazine.
1st Place $50.00
2nd Place $30.00
3rd Place $20.00
A "Peoples’ Choice Award" and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes will be presented in Memory of Teresa Shaffer
Create your own copy of an “Old Master” and we’ll have a wonderful show in February!
