Enter work in Expressions

Artists from Southern Virginia and the surrounding regions are invited to enter work in this annual showcase, which will be on display June 3– July 28, 2023 at Piedmont Arts.

Entry is open to all artists living within a 100-mile radius of Martinsville, Virginia (check your location here). 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. NO EARLY OR LATE ENTRIES WILL BE 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.
