Any students who took classes or workshops between the Winter of 2023 term and Winter 2024 may submit art they created for their coursework to the show. All eligible works will be accepted. A juror will award memberships and special prizes for a small number of the works submitted. This year’s juror is Mark Thomas Anderson. We can’t wait to see what you’ve got!

If you need to mail in your artwork, please call (703) 683-2323 or email ([email protected]) the school office.

Smaller works are preferred due to limited wall space and we are unable to accommodate diptychs. Art work must be framed and ready to hang. Although we take the utmost care in handling artwork, The Art League cannot be responsible for work that is lost or damaged. If you are submitting a pastel, be sure to indicate that on a note attached to the work.

Please consider volunteering with us!  We greatly appreciate student participation in preparing the show. You can help us with artwork drop-off or pick up, placing identification cards, providing hospitality at the reception. If you can help, please email [email protected] or call (703) 683-2323. Or sign up using this online form!

If you have any further questions, please call the school office at (703) 683-2323.
