Instructions for Participation

-This exhibition is open to all current JCAC adult students and members.

-Each participant may enter up to two works.

-Student and member work will be judged separately. If you are  a current adult student you should submit your work in the student category.  Because of limited gallery space you may not enter works in both categories. However, if you are enrolled in more than one class you may submit two works from each class which you are currently enrolled.

-Submissions must not have been exhibited at the arts center within the last two years.

-Eligible media includes mixed media, ceramics, drawing, fiber, printmaking, painting, photography, and sculpture. Please contact the curator with questions as to whether a particular medium is acceptable.

-Artists are responsible for transportation and delivery of work to and from the Johns Creek Arts Center during the designated drop off dates.

Our gallery space is limited and we cannot guarantee that we will be able to exhibit all works submitted; however, all artists who submit works for consideration will have at least one work included in the show.

The JCAC reserves the right to reproduce images of artwork for publicity purposes.

Prizes
