National Juried Art Show features artists from across the country.
There is still something wonderful to happen this 2020 and it is found on the walls of the Cultural Arts Center Douglasville/ Douglas County. If you are looking for something sensational and positive to lighten your week – or to fill your eyes, mind, and heart with enlightenment – come view the NJAS exhibit displayed September 3-25 at the gallery, Monday-Friday 9:00 am-5:00 pm. The reception will be held September 3, 5-7 pm, free to the public, and hosted by the DC Art Guild. Come view the presentation of awards for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place, Honorable Mention, and the Mary Ann Carney award, a special award presented by the DCAG.
Out of over 150 submissions from countrywide artists, only 90 works of art were chosen to be displayed in the exhibit and have a chance at four cash prizes. Three expert artists make up the panel of judges: Debrah Santini who is a children’s book illustrator and holds a MFA from the University of Massachusetts; Perry Kirk who holds a MA in Photography from the University of Notre Dame and BA in Graphic Design from Carnegie-Mellon University; and Ashan Pridgon who holds a MFA in ceramics from Clemson University.
If you cannot make it to the opening reception on September 3, 5-7 pm at the center, call to book a tour to see the amazing and diverse collection of artworks in the National Juried Art Show. Follow us on social media to hear announcements about the winners and so much more. Want to personally receive updates and future announcements?
