Please refer tJuried rules and regulations for all requirements for this exhibition. Artworks being hung must be wired. Plexi or glass is now acceptable in framing. Prior to submission please read ALL of the submission requirements using the link above. Important note: Art Center Sarasota’s Juried Exhibitions are NON-Themed and open to ALL subject matter and material. Jurors DO NOT select artwork for inclusion or awards based a particular theme or title. ACS Exhibition Committee asks jurors to make all selections based solely on artistic merit. Exhibition titles serve as a title only and thereby, in no way limit artist’s responses to the Call-for-Entries. These titles create a point of interest for audiences, marketing, and the media. Artists are encouraged to create new works for each cycle based on what they love to do.


July 16th:

Artist will discuss their process in choosing, and have an open discussion about the winning artworks,
moderated by the exhibitions coordinator. Each artist’s opinion is valued and may be shared in this open critique.

Please also stay for Judy Saltzman’s artist talk about her solo exhibition The Spirit of America, beginning at 7pm.

Each Cycle, a new Juror is asked to select the works that will be on display in the juried exhibition. The juror walks through the galleries filled to the brim with new submissions, hoping to find something inspired. Each juror selects works based on their own set of guidelines. Each also comes from a different background, whether it be artist, craftsperson, curator, patron, collector, instructor, and so on. 
Join us as we listen to the Juror's selection process, and announce the award winners of the Cycle. After a discussion, the audience is welcome to ask questions. So bring a pen and paper, take some notes, and learn from each submission process. See you there!
