An eagerly anticipated exhibition by artists and art appreciators alike happens in the fall of each year at the McKinney Center. Submissions of over 125 works each year from artists from multiple states in the southeast region results in at least 75 works being selected for the exhibit. Each year features a different credentialed and experienced juror. The juror’s artistic background, training, experience, and aesthetics are part of what creates the individual unique nature of each year’s exhibition.
The exhibit features work in all mediums and includes both two and three-dimensional works. The quality of the work at this show is very good, and the type of work is quite varied – from traditional oil painting to watercolor landscapes, ceramics, jewelry, woodwork, photography, glass, and mixed media, collage, and sculpture.
Artwork is for sale with a small percentage going to the McKinney Center’s Scholarship Fund and the rest to the artist.
