Calls for Entries

CROSSROADS JURIED ALL-MEDIA SHOWS

Crossroads’s all-media shows are open to mid-Atlantic artists through a bimonthly Call for Entries, and cash prizes are awarded for the winners. Each show is juried by a prominent arts professional from the community (a gallery director, curator, museum official, arts professor, or accomplished artist). Cash awards are given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.

 

All work submitted must be for sale. Entry fee is $10 per submission for the general public and $7 per submission for Crossroads members, with a limit of four submissions per artist. If an artist is not a member and wishes to participate, he or she may join at the time of entry. Commission on sales is 25% for artists-in-residence and 30% for other artists. For more information, download the all-media show agreement.
