Call for entries: BAYarts Annual Juried Show

BAYarts Annual Juried Show, now in its 51st year, is a chance to see the cream of the crop of regional artists in one place (the Sullivan Family Gallery in BAYarts' Fuller House). Artists 18 and over, professionals or beginners are welcome to submit two pieces of work done in the past two years, ready to hang or display.

Last year, with about 60 artists submitting, the judges chose 50 pieces for the exhibit, awarding cash prizes for Best of Show; first, second and third places; and juried and director's awards. This year, judges Kathy McConaugh, chief creative officer at American Greetings, and Rob Roth, a painter and illustrator for AG, will have the challenge of narrowing down the awards to reflect the best works in craftsmanship, originality and creativity.

In years past, some shows have had art hung floor to ceiling, while in others, only 30-40 pieces made the cut; which is what is so unique about juried shows, it is all in the hands of the judges, their personal experience, taste and expertise as professionals in art fields. Awards will be announced at the opening reception on Oct. 11, 7-9 p.m.

Entry form, drop-off details and specifics can be downloaded at or picked up in the BAYarts office. Work should be dropped off Oct. 6 and 7 or by appointment. For more information, contact Eileen Stockdale, gallery director:
