As Secretary of the Commonwealth, I am pleased to announce the

20th Annual Senior Citizens Art Show.

Sponsored by my office, the show is open to all citizens age 62 and over.

The theme of the 2016 show is: Paint A Favorite Memory

Entries will be accepted from both amateur and professional artists. The artwork will be exhibited at the Commonwealth Museum. The date of the exhibit will be determined at a later date. Professional artists will judge the entries. All medium of art is acceptable (oil, watercolor, ink, pastels, etc.).

The size requirements are a minimum of 5" x 7" and a maximum of 18" x 24".

If an artist is unable to mat and frame the entry we will provide matting using basic materials.

Please print name, address and telephone number, title, and medium on the back of the artwork.

The deadline for entries is August 1, 2016.

Entries must be mailed or delivered to the attention of:

Dolores McCray
Commonwealth Museum
220 Morrissey Boulevard
Boston, MA 02125.

An Affirmation of Award will be presented to the winning artists in a ceremony held at the Commonwealth Museum at a date to be announced. At that time artwork may be retrieved.

If the artist is unable to attend we will return the artwork.

Very truly yours,
William Francis Galvin
Secretary of the Commonwealth
