Artwork that is accepted to the show will be on display in the Shelby County Arts Council’s new EBSCO Fine Art Gallery from Jan. 23, 2020-March 6, 2020.

“We are looking for a vast variety of art that showcases the talent Alabama has to offer,” SCAC Executive Director Bruce Andrews said. “Show us what you’ve got!”

There will be cash awards for winners in “Best in Show” and best in each medium category. The 2020 exhibit will be judged by Alabama artist Brian Edmonds.
