The EAC (Elderly Accommodation Council) hold an annual art competion for amatuer artists in the over 60's age group (that means I get to qualify! -Alan).
Selected artists get their works displayed at the Royal Birminham Society of Artists Gallery in Birmingham from 10th to 21 May 2011. Works can include all painting and drawing media, plus textiles, enamel work, photography, and sculpture.
Further details, including view of previous entries, can be obtained from the EAC competition website (www.eacartawards.org.uk/) . Entries close on 4 March 2011, so you need to hurry!!
