CCAL caps off the end of the year with an annual contest which showcases the wonderful artwork of our members. Artwork is prepared by participating members (all are welcome to take part) and presented at our May end of year meeting. The best pieces are chosen by CCAL members and awarded first through third place. Each receives an award ribbon and bragging rights. All the artwork is exhibited in the TAP gallery throughout the summer. Select pieces are generally then also exhibited elsewhere in the community as opportunities arise. In addition, the artwork may be used in promotional materials, such a calendar, which is offered for sale by the league as a fund raiser. Please consider joining in the fun!

Treasures in My Backyard Contest

2022 Annual Contest Theme:

Treasures in My Backyard

“Treasures in My Backyard” is the theme for our 2022 May contest.  A starry night, a beautiful sunset, a family gathering, flowers in the garden, wildlife in the woods are just a few examples.  Inspiration is closer than we realize and often, just outside our door. 


Participation is open to all Crooked Creek Art League members.  Art work must be original and completed within the last 3 years.

Note: Artwork entered in the Annual Contest is not restricted from also being entered into one of our two annual juried shows.

For more details, please see the Prospectus (link below).
