The Dogwood Arts Regional Art Exhibition was developed to showcase and award the finest artists of our region. Fine art encompassing all styles and genres from both emerging and established artists will be selected by a talented juror with vast experience in the arts and a passion for our region’s creative culture. The exhibit will be on display from June 7-28, 2019. Dogwood Arts only accepts artworks completed in the last two years by artists 18 and older.

An independent juror with significant ties to local, regional and national creative culture will review each application, select the participants and finally award monies totaling $2,000 to exceptional artists at the opening celebration. For the 2019 season, applicants must permanently live within 500 miles of the Dogwood Arts office. Read the Prospectus before you apply!
