Regular exhibit entry is free for Members of the Creative Arts Center or $30 per artist for Non-Members.

Each month we celebrate the art and artists with a Opening Night Reception, which are generally on the First Friday of every month – come and go from 4-6 pm.  Artists are strongly encouraged to attend, in order to visit with center members, the public and potential patrons.

All submissions will require an exhibit entry fee for September’s Annual Community Art Show & Contest.
No exhibit entry fee will be collected for youth submissions to the Budding Artists Exhibit & Contest in April.

Submissions are accepted during our regular business hours the week leading up to the First Friday of each month.
See entry deadlines below. All hanging artwork must have a wire on the back.

The CAC Director and Staff reserves the right to reject any work deemed inappropriate for any reason.
The Creative Arts Center, its staff, and volunteers will not be held responsible for damage to entries.
