2018 VMRC Juried Art Exhibition

Click for a copy of the prospectus and entry form for the 2018 VMRC Juried Art Exhibition.  We hope you will submit an entry for this year’s exhibition as you have in past years.  Please note the change to have 3 divisions within this year’s exhibition and a Best in Division Award for each.  The entry deadline remains March 15 and the fee remains $35 – as in past years.  The total award money has increased, including 3 awards designated as Juror’s Choice.  Other juror awards are selected by the jurors working collaboratively but for these new awards each juror will choose a work that speaks specifically to him/her!

Please share information about the exhibition with your fellow artists and encourage them to submit entries. Contact me (artexhibit@vmrc.org) if you have questions or concerns. We look forward to hearing from you.
