Statewide Annual Competition

The Statewide Annual theme rotates between Mixed Media & Works on Paper; Craft, Photography, Video & Digital works; and Painting & Sculpture. Works are chosen for display by two out-of-state artists or arts professionals who travel to the Rio Gallery to jury the exhibition. A $1,000 best in show award is given to one artist, as well as six $600 jurors’ awards. Jurors also select two honorable mentions.
