About the Exhibition

For more than 15 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. This year, we are presenting the exhibition online as a virtual experience as well as in our galleries at the Delaplaine.

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.

Due to the added online format of this year’s Over 70 Show, the Delaplaine will only be accepting the first 100 submitted artworks. If you do not receive a confirmation email by the artwork drop-off dates, please call to verify your submission.

For questions, please contact Sydney Dexter, Exhibitions Manager, here or by calling 301-698-0656 ext. 108.
