The 6th Annual Show of Shows at The von Liebig Art Center

The exhibition and teaching facility of the Naples Art Association (NAA) (Naples Art Association) is The von Liebig Art Center located on Park St. in downtown Naples, FL. Usually, most art exhibits are juried. Jurors are people with expertise in the art world that decide whether or not you are invited to be part of an art show. For the past 6 years, the NAA has hosted an event called the Show of Shows (Show of Shows). This is a non-juried show for it's members. This means that they will accept any submission as long as it is not deemed inappropriate.

It's great for us members for three reasons. First, it's an easy way to get another notch on your artistic belt. Second, it you submit a JPEG (JPEG) of your work, it is put on their website, which increases your internet presence. Finally, these openings are really just a damn good time! Who doesn't like a good party? If you click on the following link you will see representative pictures of the submissions for this show (Images from the Show of Shows). I think as you peruse these featured submissions, you will agree that it is exemplary of the diversity and talent of the members of this organization.

The event that evening was graciously sponsored by Vi at Bentley Village (Vi at Bentley Village). This is a retirement/assisted living village that has a close working relationship with the NAA.
There was a record number of submissions this year.

One of the really fun things about this show is that the Collier County Supervisor of Elections Office (Supervisor of Elections) donates voting machines for the event, and the audience that evening picks the winners.

Those to win awards will be notified September 12th when the voting results will be posted on the NAA web site. I am keeping my fingers crossed about this one.

Well that's that! Another fun evening at The von Liebig Art Center in Naples, FL.
