About the Show

The Art Alliance Figurative Show has been showcasing artworks of the human figure by Central Pennsylvania artists for more than 20 years.

Eligible Work

Entry to the show is not juried. All work must have the human figure as the dominant theme; clothed figures, nudes, and portraits are all invited. Each artist may submit one piece. 2-D and 3-D works that have not received awards in previous Art Alliance shows are eligible. All works must be original. 

Prepare Your Artwork

Make sure your work is securely wired and ready to hang. Poorly framed work, unframed work, clips, brackets, partial frames, or wet work will not be accepted. Unframed stretched canvases are acceptable if they have finished sides and secure wiring. All pieces under glass or plexiglass must be framed. 3-D work may not exceed 100 lbs. The piece must be stable in its position and securely attached to its base.

The chair reserves the right to reject entries that do not meet these requirements and will have the final decision on how the work is hung.

Entry Process and Fee

Each artist may submit one piece. The entry form and non-refundable fee are due by Friday, May 3. Online payment is available on our registration website — click here and choose the Figurative Show 2024 from the Session Search — hit SEARCH.
