Juried art show deadline extended to June 19

The Yadkin Arts Council invites artists from all over the state of North Carolina to enter its annual Juried Exhibition. This is the 9th year of hosting this exhibit. This exhibition is a celebration of some of the finest creativity in North Carolina and brings a beautifully diverse collection of artists to the Welborn Gallery each year.

Eligibility for entry is open to Fine Art artists in both 2D and 3D categories that are a minimum of 18 years of age and reside in North Carolina. $3,500 in combined prizes will be awarded to the best artists.

Prizes will be awarded at the opening reception on July 9. At this time the opening reception is tentatively scheduled for 5-7 p.m. and will take place outside on the plaza, with small groups being given access to the gallery to view the exhibit at a safe social distance. (This is all dependent upon what Phase Three restrictions will entail). If the reception cannot happen on July 9, then the plan is to do a closing reception in August.

**Please note that the Yadkin Arts Council is optimistic that the gallery will be back open in time for this exhibit, but if for some reason they are unable to be open due to the current pandemic situation and any unforeseen restrictions in the next month, they will convert this exhibit to a virtual competition and prizes will still be awarded. If this were to happen, pieces would be judged on an image alone and the Arts Council may ask artists to submit a few more pictures so that they can get the full effect and judge fairly.**
