Fall Members’ Juried Exhibition

The fall 2018 Members’ Juried Exhibition will run September 29 – October 27, 2018.  All current members may submit 1-2 pieces of work for consideration in this show. This is a juried show and will be judged for awards.


  • Dates of drop-off*: Sunday, September 23 (1-4pm) & Monday, September 24 (4-7pm)
  • Date of pick-up*: Sunday, October 28 (1-4pm)

*No exception to these dates and times, storage fees may apply after these dates.

Who is eligible?

All (members) Friends of the Hopkins Center for the Arts. (If you are not a member, you may become one when you register for the show.)

What artwork is eligible?

  • Original work in all media is accepted but must have been completed within the last 2 years and not previously exhibited at the Center.  (Work is juried for entry, this is not like the members’ spring show.)
  • Work must be submitted ready for installation – clean, undamaged and framed if meant to be framed.  For wall-hung pieces, please attach a horizontal wire as the hanging mechanism as this permits us to attach the piece securely to the wall.

How do I register?

  • Hand deliver 1-2 pieces of art to the Center on Sunday, September 23 (1-4pm) or Monday, September 24 (4-7pm). NO EXCEPTIONS TO DATES AND TIMES!  Unlike our spring members’ show when all work is exhibited, for this show a jury will review submitted work and choose pieces for the show. Artwork accepted for the show will then be judged for ribbons and cash awards.
  • Have a check ready for your nonrefundable entry fee of $15 for one piece and $18 for two pieces. IF YOU NEED TO BECOME A MEMBER, you may include your membership fee in the same check ($35; $30 for people age 60 and over or full-time students).  Make the check payable to: Friends of HCA.
  • Make sure you have the following information attached to the back of your piece: your name, title of work, medium, price if for sale, your e-mail, your daytime phone if you do not have e-mail.

Then what happens?

  •  A jury will review submitted work and choose pieces for the show.
  • Jurying will occur on Tuesday, September 25 and you will be notified by e-mail if your work has been accepted or not by Thursday. Pick up of unselected work on Friday, September 28 from 4-7pm.
  • A free, public opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 4 from 6-8pm. The show will be judged for awards and these will be given out at 7pm at the reception.
  • The show will remain open for public viewing free of charge during normal operation hours: 8am-8pm Monday-Friday; 10am-8pm Saturday; Noon-5pm Sunday.
  • You must pick up your artwork after the show closes on Sunday, October 28 (1-4pm). Work not picked up on time is subject to a storage fee of $5 per day.
