Real People is an international juried fine art exhibition celebrating the arts through faces and figures. Real People is open to all artists and media; submitted work must depict the human form or face in some manner that is recognizable. This year will mark our 20th Anniversary Real People Show and the 30th Anniversary for the Old Courthouse Arts Center in Woodstock, Illinois, located outside of Chicago, Illinois. Real People has become a much-anticipated area event and the show enjoys excellent media coverage and exposure. Along with the Opening Reception, other events are held at Arts Center during the exhibition to encourage attendance, including a very special celebration of the Art Center’s 30th year of operation. As the City of Woodstock is preparing to begin extensive interior renovations to this historic 163 year old building this will be the final Real People held at the Old Courthouse Art Center. We hope you will consider joining us for this year’s show!
Real People is open to all artists and media; submitted work must depict the human form or face in some manner that is recognizable. Works previously shown at the Old Court House Arts Center are not eligible for entry, so any works previously accepted for Real People or Women’s Works are also ineligible.
