The official entry rules for “Expressions 2022” are available now at Piedmont Arts and online at PiedmontArts.org. Artists from Southern Virginia and the surrounding regions are invited to enter this annual showcase, which will be on display May 28 – July 29, at Piedmont Arts in Martinsville, Virginia.
Artwork entry will take place on Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Piedmont Arts. Entry is open to all artists living within a 100-mile radius of Martinsville. Artwork submitted for entry must have been completed within the last three years. Work previously exhibited in “Expressions” is not eligible. Up to two pieces of art may be submitted per artist. Unlike a juried exhibition, “Expressions” is open-entry, and all submitted works in compliance with the entry rules are accepted.
Cash prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place in seven categories, as well as purchase awards, the Lynwood Artists Award and Best In Show.
Before entering work, artists should read the complete entry rules and download an entry form at piedmontarts.org/info/expressions.cfm.
