Upcoming Exhibits and Calls for Artists

The Arts Council has several opportunities throughout the year for artists to display their work in the Bower-Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery. This page is for all the open and upcoming call for artists. Artists can also find links to opportunities on this page. If you’ve never entered an exhibit before, that’s OK! ARTSWIN staff are here to help you through the process to help you get your work featured. Contact Gallery Director Andrea Adams to help get started.
