The 17th annual Juried Art Show and Preview Reception is coming up soon, and we want you to see your work. Held in collaboration with Auburn CityFest 2022, the Juried Art Show and Preview Reception will be held on Thursday, April 28, at the Historic Nunn-Winston House at Kiesel Park from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Presented by the Auburn Arts Association, the city of Auburn and Auburn-Opelika Tourism, the exhibition will feature a variety of works by regional artists working in fine art mediums including painting, works on paper, three-dimensional (ceramics/sculpture), mixed-media and photography.

Artists 18 and older from Alabama or adjacent states may enter one work in their chosen medium. Applications can be found at under the Juried Art Show tab. The entry fee is $25 to be paid in advance, but the fee is waived for artists purchasing exhibitor booths at Auburn CityFest on April 30.

Displayed works will be available for sale, and up to $1,000 in merit awards will be awarded. There will be two $250 Special Awards presented by Auburn-Opelika Tourism. All award winners will be announced at the reception Thursday night. All works entered will be displayed at Auburn CityFest on April 30 at Kiesel Park from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Nunn-Winston House.

The deadline for entry forms and fees is Monday, April 25. The piece of work to be entered is also due Monday, April 25. Please bring your application, entry fee and artwork to the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center, located across the street from the Auburn Post Office.
