2024 Arcata Airport Exhibition

RAA is issuing this invitation to members of the Redwood Art Association

The show will run from June 10, 2024 until May 30, 2025.  There is no theme for this exhibition.  

Entry period is CLOSED.  Installation Day is June 10 2024

The Airport Exhibition is open to all RAA Members in good standing.

  • For the airport exhibition, since its duration is one year, we expect exhibitors to maintain their membership for the full duration of the exhibition.  Thus if you know your membership will expire during the exhibition and you do not plan to renew – we would hope you would not enter in the yearlong exhibition.

  • Entries have to be submitted online with photographs.

  • Work has to be ready to hang. This means framed with a hanging wire (not a saw tooth or other hanger). We are very happy to have a workshop for your artists at the gallery to demonstrate and assist with preparing for hanging


Two works can be entered by each artist. All works will be included in the exhibition so bring your best! Frame and Mat color are not restricted for this exhibition but please make tasteful choices for a public venue!  RAA reserves the right to deny submitted artworks inappropriate for a public venue.


All work needs to adhere to RAA format listed below:


2-D Artwork Information

  • Your entry must be at least 16” x 20”. Larger images are encouraged.

  • Attaching wire to your frame:

  • Braided wire, aluminum, non-stretch cord, non-stretch plastic or coated wire, hereafter referred to as “wire”, must be used. No string or rope should be used.

  • Attach D-rings not eye hook fasteners for the wire about ⅓ of the way down from the top of the frame. Wind the wire tightly at least four times after running through the hangers. If possible, wrap ends of wire in such a way that handlers are not cut by the sharp edges. Electrical tape is a material that works well.  The apex of the wire when pulled taut should be two inches below the top of the frame. Do not use saw tooth hangers or spring clips.

  • Non-skid material (or bumpers) on the corners will help reduce movement and protect walls from scuffing.


3-D Artwork Information

Pedestals: we have pedestals with protective plexiglas covers at the airport.  We encourage you to go to the airport and look at the different sized pedestals so you will know the sizes that you can submit.


Terms of Artwork Sales

RAA will take a 30% commission for each sale (to be split with the airport) so take that into consideration when you price your work. We will be listing the prices for the art in the exhibition, or NFS, each artist is responsible for sales. If the work needs to be mailed out of the area, the artist is responsible for packaging and mailing costs. When a sale is made the artist needs to replace the art with a similar sized piece, so we don’t have to rehang the exhibition.


Installation Day Plan

Currently, plan on bringing your work to the Arcata Airport Monday June 10th between 10am and 12 noon. If the date slips due to outside influences there will be an announcement to that effect as far in advance as possible.  Please note: we cannot accept walk-in entries on Installation Day, all entries must be submitted online by the June 7, 2024 deadline.  If you need help submitting your online entry please write us at
