May 16 - August 9, 2020 (Opening Reception: Friday, May 15, 5:00 - 7:00 pm)
Local Perspectives is a return to a successful series of juried exhibitions that ended in 2004. The goal is to show as much of our local creativity as we can fit in our largest space, the Main Gallery. Artists of all backgrounds, 18 and over, from within 50 miles of Sioux City are invited to submit up to 3 artworks for consideration. A maximum of 50 artworks will be selected for the exhibition. Works in all media are acceptable (please note: artists who use electronic equipment to present their work should be prepared to supply the necessary equipment). The Art Center’s recently retired director, Al Harris-Fernandez, will serve as the juror of the exhibition. Awards will be offered to the artworks judged to be 1st ($500), 2nd ($300), and 3rd ($200).
