Are you an artist, ages 18-40? Want exposure? Whether you are a potter, painter, photographer... or any other maker, this Juried Show is for you.
On February 22, 2019, Starkville Area Arts Council will host its Second Annual U40 juried showcase for artists ages 18 - 40. Not only do you get to share your work in public, but get to sell it, too! We'll follow our Art in Public Places model, keep a reduced commission of 20%, collect and pay the sales tax on your behalf, and YOU keep the rest. We'll kick off a month-long display with an event for you to invite family and friends.
Apply by January 25, 2019. Send us your best work (the images you provide must be of the work you wish to submit). On acceptance into the Exhibition, your work MUST be gallery ready (that means mounted or framed and ready to hang / display using a wire hanging system).
- painting, watercolor
- pen, ink, pencil
- if these categories sound boring and yours doesn't fit, submit anyway.
No craft kits, please. This is for YOUR work. One work per submission (you may submit up to 3 works - any others will be disregarded) Final selection may hinge on space limitations and total number of submissions. We suggest that you submit works with a minimum selling point of $50. For ceramics, this suggestion is more relaxed.
Where will the work be on display? Nine-Twenty Nine in downtown Starkville. For one month. We're excited to have Whitney Turnipseed, Executive Director of Greenville Arts Council in Greenville, MS, join us as our juror!
