The Danville Art League once again brings works by the region’s best artists to Danville for display in its annual juried art exhibition.   This exhibit is co-sponsored by the Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History and mounted in two of the Museum’s changing art galleries.

The Juried Show is open to artists with principal residence in the cities of Danville, Martinsville, South Boston, and Lynchburg and the counties of Pittsylvania, Henry, Franklin, Bedford, Campbell and Halifax, Virginia as well as Caswell and Rockingham Counties in North Carolina. They did not have to be members of the Danville Art League to submit work. All submissions had to have been completed within the last two years, and are original in design and execution. Eligible works are two-dimensional and three- dimensional pieces including painting, printmaking, drawing, mixed media, photography, pottery and sculpture.

In a juried exhibition, not all works submitted will be selected to be in the exhibition. A juror, either a professional artist, art educator, gallery owner or arts administrator, will make the selections based on good principles of design and composition, use of materials and creativity. Award winning works will then be chosen by the juror from the over-all juried show.

Come see some amazing works of art – some by artists well-known in the area and some terrific newcomers as well! The Opening Reception is free and open to the public.
