The Arts & Cultural Foundation of Antioch is proud to present the works of artists living in and around the Delta at the Lynn House Gallery. Must be 18 years of age or older to participate. With the many hills and valleys, along with East Bay Regional Park properties, artists have an abundance of opportunities to capture nature and all its wonders in many art forms. The Nature’s Canvas Exhibit has many works of art in oils, acrylic, mixed media and photography.

The theme is open to any concept of nature. Whether it be an idea, feeling, person, element, etc. The artist's theme choice is theirs and theirs alone and open to their concept of "Nature".

Artwork is not juried and participation is on a first come, first serve, up to 35 artists.  Each artist may submit up two items.

The prize pool for this exhibit is $525.00: $200 for Best of Show, $150 for 1st Place, $100 for 2nd Place and $75 for 3rd Place.  As the Lynn House Gallery is a community gallery, the artwork is judged by community members on content and emotions it generates. These will be the information provided to the judges:


1.    Good art should appeal to you. It will be skillfully made, most likely by an artist who has created other works in a similar fashion.

2.    The best art has meaning beyond just an image; perhaps it will bring you to tears, make you laugh, or remind you of something you’d almost forgotten. It also stands out in a crowd, and dares to be different.

3.    Good art is understandable, although it may make you think.
