The Work of Art in Helping to Heal our Veterans
Round Rock Arts is pleased to announce this Call for Art for an exhibition in partnership with the 2023 Austin Veteran Arts’ 2023 AVAFEST. For many military veterans, creative work serves as a healing therapy, both from the activity of creating art and from viewing works of art. We wish to explore and promote artwork being created by our military heroes and heroines, and provide a rich, diverse and meaningful exhibit for veterans and patriots alike to enjoy.
This Call for Art is also open to Patriot Artists. If you are a military family member or a proud patriot with a heart for veterans, please submit your works of art which explore our theme “Heroic Reflections.”
AVAFEST is a series of events across Central Texas with the mission to use the arts for promoting wellness in veterans, thereby saving their lives from suicide.
Visit avafest.org for the full list of scheduled events.
Round Rock Arts’ exhibit “Heroic Reflections” is open to artwork of all media types which interprets this theme in any manner that is authentic to each artist. All art media accepted, including (but not limited to) oil, acrylic, photography, ink, collage, small 3D sculpture, watercolor, pastel, pencil, and mixed media.
Are You a Veteran Artist? Yes = Free for up to 4 works of art.
Are You a Patriot Artist? Yes = $20 for up to 4 works of art.
While this is not a juried show, Round Rock Arts reserves the privilege of limiting the number of accepted works per artist, in order to allow for the greatest number of artists to participate in the show.
A portion of exhibit proceeds will be donated to Austin Veteran Arts to help further their mission of reaching, supporting, and helping our veterans heal through art. This is a Zero-Commission exhibit. Round Rock Arts happily accepts donations from a portion of art sale proceeds, so that we may continue our mission of supporting and promoting local artists by showcasing their creations at our three Round Rock venues.
