The Shelby County Arts Council is now accepting submissions for the 2017 Art as History-Adult Juried Art Show.

This year’s show will be in conjunction with the upcoming Alabama 200 Bicentennial Celebration.

By decree from the Governor of Alabama 2017, 2018 and 2019 have been designated as years of celebration approaching this monumental bicentennial benchmark.

The SCAC is calling all artists to enter this year’s juried art show. This year’s entry fee is $30, and membership is not required to enter.

In conjunction with the Alabama bicentennial promotion, there will be a historical theme for the 2017 Adult Juried Art Show.

The theme of all pieces submitted will be historical in nature to reflect the unique history of Shelby County and its residents.

Participants are allowed to enter up to two pieces for the exhibit. All entries must be inspired by a visit to the Shelby County Museum and Archives (located in the beautiful town of Columbiana Alabama right on Main Street).

The artist is encouraged to visit the museum in person or check out For more information on entering the show, visit
