About the Exhibition

For about 20 years, the Delaplaine’s Over 70 Show has showcased artworks by artists age 70 and up during the month of August. The Over 70 Show continues to grow, with hundreds of artists from throughout the region submitting their artworks in recent years. In addition to the gallery exhibition, an online overview of the exhibition will be available as a virtual experience as well.

Artists of all skill levels, age 70 or older, are invited to submit one work of art in any medium. The exhibition showcases a wide range of styles, techniques, and interests. The first 100 submitted artworks submitted after the Call for Entries will be accepted. If you do not receive a confirmation email by the artwork drop-off dates, please contact us to verify your submission.
