The 2023 SPRING Fine Arts Show is open to all U.S. artists age 18 and older. All original work is eligible if it has never been submitted to an HCAC judged event.

Entries in the following media will be accepted: painting, watercolor, drawing, mixed media, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, carving, textile, glass, wood, metal work, photography. Two-dimensional work must not exceed 3ft in width & 3ft in height, and must be ready for exhibition and ready to hang by wire. We are not able to accept work that requires suspension from the ceiling. Textiles may be larger if they can be folded for display. Work to be hung must not be over 15 pounds. Three- dimensional work must not exceed 4 feet in any direction or weigh more than 100 pounds. Depending on size, they will be placed on pedestals or on the floor for display. All work must be labeled with the artist’s name, title, short description, & price.

The HCAC screening/registration panel will serve as the final authority on eligibility. All art is expected to be displayed throughout the length of the Fine Arts Show. Work submitted should be considered for general viewing audiences of all ages.

Sarah Gallahan, a muralist, from Winchester VA will be our 2023 Judge.
