September 15th is the deadline for the 2nd Annual Latinx Art Show presented by the Amador County Arts Council. Artists of all ages and modalities are encouraged to submit pieces that celebrate and highlight the arts, cultures, and contributions of Latin life, food, music, and traditions. Artists of Latin heritage will be given priority in this curated show, however, all submissions will be considered. AmadorArts is looking for original works in all kinds of modalities including painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, textile, poetry, theatre, dance, music, literary, and industrial arts.

The show opens September 22nd, under proper COVID-19 restrictions, Tuesday through Thursday from 8:30am to 4pm at the AmadorArts new gallery/office/event space inside the Amador Senior Center at 229 New York Ranch Road in Jackson. AmadorArts will also produce a virtual reception to celebrate the show’s artists. The exhibit will be available in the AmadorArts virtual gallery at amadorarts.org.

Worldwide, artists of all skill levels, all media, and all ages are welcome to submit  and there is no fee to enter. Pieces must be delivered by September 15, 2020, to Amador County Arts Council, ready to hang/present, and with no exposed jagged edges or glass. Artists may include artist bio and statement, maximum 500 characters. Works may be for sale, with a suggested donation to the non-profit Amador County Arts Council.
