Opportunity for PG County Artists

Deadline: July 22, 2011

The Brentwood Arts Exchange is pleased to announce The Sky's the Limit, the 2011 Prince George's County Juried Exhibition. Download the prospectus here.

Photographic imagery is ubiquitous in nearly every aspect of our lives, from billboards, to cell phone videos, to keepsake albums, to Facebook profiles. It's no coincidence that it is just as pervasive throughout contemporary art - even in media that are often thought of in stark contrast to traditional photography. The Sky's the Limit presents a glimpse of the ways photography employs itself throughout the visual arts, here and now. Juried by Michael Platt, the exhibition presents the best photo-inclusive art by artists who live, work, or study in Prince George's County. Hosted in the Gateway Arts District for the second time, this Prince George's County Juried Exhibition is our chance to show off the important contributions that artists in our county make to contemporary art throughout the region.
All submissions must be received by 5:00pm


The Sky's the Limit will feature two purchase awards totaling over $2,000. One award will be presented by the Prince George's Arts Council, and one will be presented by the Prince George's County Department of Parks and Recreation, M-NCPPC.
