Library Arts Center Gallery
Entry Deadline: August 10, 2020
Artists are encouraged to also compete for the Library Arts Center’s Selections Competition when entering the 2020 Juried Regional. **Please ensure that you have already applied for the Juried Regional before entering Selections.
While selecting work for the Juried Regional, jurors are also asked to select 6 to 8 artists who they feel present the strongest work (from those who choose to compete). These selected artists are awarded the opportunity to display a larger body of their work in the Library Arts Center Selections Exhibit in 2021. This exhibit is planned to take place in the gallery, but may be changed if there are extended closures due to the pandemic.
Painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography and mixed media are welcome. There is no additional fee to compete for Selections.
As Selections Winners will be displaying a body of work of 5-10 pieces in the Selections Exhibit, those competing for selections should make sure that their 6 – 8 images read as a body of work clearly connected by theme, style, and/or content.
*LAC Policy: This year’s Selections winners are welcome to enter the Juried Regional, but are asked to wait one year before competing for Selections again.
