April 20 - June 9 , 2018

Let’s start our spring season with explosions of color!  We’re looking for art in any 2-D medium that expresses quality color composition.  We learned this acronym as children to recall the rainbow spectrum; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.  For this open (no theme) competition, artists are encouraged to share their artistic vision using a concentration of color. One color or a multitude of colors meets the criteria.  Artwork can range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and can be any subject matter and any of the accepted media.

Here's how to enter:

  • Entry fee is $25 for up to 2 images. To pay the entry fee, click here.
  • If you are submitting a photograph or watercolor, must include frame and matte (black frames with white matte ready for hanging)
  • Ready-to-hang photos must be received at the gallery by April 16, 2018


All prize winners, judges selection and honorable mentions will be shown in the gallery. All awards will be made at the show opening and Artists' Reception on April 20th, 2018 at Red Door 104 Gallery, 104 North Main St. Farmville, VA from 6-8pm.
