Walton Arts Center officials are seeking art submissions for a group exhibition of local work coming up this fall.

The new show, called Our Art, Our Region, Our Time and set to feature NWA visual artists, will be curated by longtime local artist, Kathy Thompson.

Artists 18 and older from the NWA region are invited to submit work created after July 1, 2021 for the show, which will consider several genres including painting, sculpture, digital, printmaking, fiber, photography, mixed media, crafts, fashion and illustration.

The exhibition will not be curated around any certain theme, and the idea is to celebrate the talent of NWA artists.

Selections for the new show will be announced on Sept. 6. The exhibit will be on display in the WAC’s Joy Pratt Markham Gallery beginning on Oct. 6, and will run through Nov. 13.

Artists may submit up to two pieces for consideration, however only one work per artist will be accepted for the show.

The deadline to submit work is Aug. 15.

Submissions will be accepted online at waltonartscenter.org.
