ANNOUNCING! The Thirty-First annual Emerald Coast National Juried Exhibition call for art is now open! What began as a regional show has evolved into far-reaching exciting programming of a range of art by emerging to established artists reflecting what creatives are doing today. A show that people travel to see and a program that locals look forward to all year! We typically see a few hundred applications from working artists across the US and abroad who work in contemporary, experimental, and classical mediums, styles, and techniques. This year’s ECN will be guest juried by the award-winning scholar, curator, and Professor Dr. Maria Elena Buszek.
The exhibition is an open call without a theme. All mediums and styles are welcome. Best in Show wins $1000.00 and a solo exhibition in 2024 during ECN 32. Artists will exhibit in the expansive 1500-square-foot McIlroy Gallery, with an opening reception at 6:00 p.m. on August 31, 2023.
