The 2020 Student and Emerging Artist Exhibition and Reception in City Hall has been postponed. In the interim, we are working on a digital exhibition of the accepted works. Check back for more information about this exciting new program!



The Student and Emerging Artist Competition is designed specifically for emerging artists seeking to learn about the professional support available in Ocala, wanting to begin participating in artist's programs and organizations, and gain professional experience. This is a juried show that provides artists with an opportunity for prizes, as well as a professional exhibit to add to their resumes and experience.
