Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: March 13, 2020 – The Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation announces a call for artists for its ’25th Annual National Juried Art Exhibition’, on display April 17 – May 24, 2019.

The juried exhibit draws entries from artists living all across the United States, and the result is an exhibition which provides a snap-shot of what other parts of the country are doing in the art world.

We see this show as a unique opportunity to not only enrich our community with a quality event but to educate as well, and for that reason we invite professionals from established museums and art centers to juror.

All forms of media are accepted, so the juror selects from paintings, drawings, pottery, jewelry, etc.  Work must be original and completed within the past three years. No substitutes of accepted works will be permitted unless previous arrangements have been made. Work previously exhibited at SOUTHWORKS or any OCAF exhibit within the last three years is not eligible.

Chad Alligood is an independent curator and art historian of modern and contemporary American art. He has served as the Virginia Steele Scott Chief Curator of American Art at The Huntington in San Marino, California, and as a curator at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. His major exhibition project, State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now, won the 2015 Excellence in Exhibition honors from the American Alliance of Museums.

Best in Show, First Merit 2-D & 3-D and an additional three Merit Awards to be selected by juror.

OCAF members: non-refundable jury fee – $25 for up to three entries. Non-members: non-refundable jury fee – $35 for up to three entries.

All entries to the exhibit will be juried from computer images. If selected and upon receipt of work, the work is not of the quality reflected in the image, the juror reserves the right to exclude the work from the exhibit.

The Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation will deduct 35% commission on sales of artwork sold during the exhibition. No price changes from application permitted.

The Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation, Inc. (OCAF) promotes Cultural Arts and Artists and provides Art Education to the Citizens of Oconee County and the Northeast Georgia area.
