Juried Online Exhibit – December 2020
For many years, State of the Art Gallery has been proud to host a juried exhibit of work by regional artists during the month of December. But due to the Covid19 pandemic, we have decided to forego the in gallery exhibit and opt for an online only version this year and to open the show eligibility to all artists living in the USA. Entries are now being accepted! The deadline is October 15, 2020. Winning art will be prominently featured on State of the Art Gallery website along with information about the winning artists and links to their websites and social media pages.
Due to the online only nature of the show, the entry fee has been reduced this year to $25.
