Important note: Art Center Sarasota’s Juried Exhibitions are NON-Themed and open to ALL subject matter and material. Jurors DO NOT select artwork for inclusion or awards based a particular theme or title. ACS Exhibition Committee asks jurors to make all selections based solely on artistic merit. Exhibition titles serve as a title only and thereby, in no way limit artist’s responses to the Call-for-Entries. These titles create a point of interest for audiences, marketing, and the media. Artists are encouraged to create new works for each cycle based on what they love to do.
