2021 Adult Juried Art Exhibit
The 2021 Adult Juried Art Exhibit opening and gallery reception was held on Thursday, January 21st, 2021 in the Shelby County Arts Center’s EBSCO Fine Art Gallery.
Although COVID has put a damper on our year, this show goes to prove that you can’t stop the creative spirit. With nearly 100 people in attendance, guests had the opportunity to see work from talented artists from across Alabama. Artists entered work in the categories of drawing, photography, painting, 3D design, and mixed-media. Each entry went through two rounds of judging by juror Nelson Grice. Out of over 140 entries to the show, around 70 pieces were selected to be in the exhibit. Grice then made his final selections for the best of each category and best of show from the selected works.
Be sure to stop by the gallery and see this work while it’s on display! The work will remain on display until March 4, 2021. Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday from 10am-5pm.
