2019 Art Show Announcements and Schedule

About the Shows

The Convention Center hosts two Art Shows a year, which run approximately six months each. All shows are juried by professionals from the local arts community, and they choose what works will be shown from artist submissions.

The wall space is set up for hanging 2D work, which needs to be fairly sizable to show well. Because of the events hosted year-round, work is hung a minimum of five to six feet off the floor, as lower wall space is often needed for convention exhibits and booths. For the same reason, we do not exhibit 3D work, given the need for flexible floor space that can be configured for a variety of events.

The Convention Center provides publicity for the shows through a wide variety of local print and online outlets. Artists will receive postcards advertising the show, to send out to patrons and supporters before the Artist’s Reception is held. These will also be distributed in the local area. Food and drink will also be provided by the Convention Center at this early evening event.
