64th Annual Juried Art Show

Plan now to enter the Chestertown Arts League’s 64th Open Juried Art Show, scheduled for March 25 – April 15, 2012 to be held at the Galleries of Heron Point at 501 East Campus Avenue. Here is an opportunity not only to have your work seen by several hundred viewers but to possibly win a cash award. Prizes include Best of Show, Juror’s Choice, Best Representation of the Eastern Shore, Best Abstract, Most Traditional Watercolor, six Awards of Excellence and three Honorable Mentions. Bear these awards in mind as you review your work over the previous two years and as you plan future projects.

We accept work in seven categories: graphics, paintings on paper, paintings on canvas or board, pastels, mixed media, photography, and sculpture. Artists may enter up to three pieces with not more than two in any one category (e.g., two watercolors and one pastel).
