SOUTHWORKS 2016: 21st Annual National Juried Art Exhibit

OCAF Main Gallery

Southworks Juried Art Exhibit is a national juried art exhibition that OCAF has been holding for years. Since its inception, it has been one of the premier art exhibitions in the region as it brings in several hundred applications from talented artists across the nation. All the exhibit entries are judged in an anonymous fashion by the juror. This process requires each piece of artwork to be accepted or denied based solely upon the level of quality each piece exhibits in relation to the other entries.

Prospectus & Application now available!
