The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts is excited to announce its third annual Fulton-Montgomery Art Show, featuring only the works of artists who live or work in Fulton and Montgomery Counties.
The Fulton-Montgomery Art Show will feature submissions from individual and group artists in all media alongside the work of a special guest artist and pieces by student artists from the Fulton/Montgomery region’s schools. Students who are interested in submitting should approach their art teachers for submission forms. Artwork from students in grades 9-12 will be juried and eligible for awards.
The Fulton-Montgomery Art Show will hang from April 4 to May 1. Throughout its run, the arts center will host a number of special events to encourage the public to visit and enjoy the artwork. Artists may submit work now until March 17 through https://www.onlinejuriedshows.com/Default.aspx?OJSID=34098. Please note that this is not a juried show, but this website is used for ease of submission and selection by the curators. Artists who wish to submit should visit the website and scroll down until they find the Fulton-Montgomery Art Show. Further submission guidelines are available there. Student artists who enter work through their art teachers do not need to submit through Online Juried Shows.

All winners will also receive a membership to the arts center, which grants them access to special events and discounts on classes, workshops and future gallery submissions.
