SOUTHWORKS: Annual National Juried Exhibition 

April-May 2016
The Southworks Juried Art Exhibition is a national juried art exhibition that OCAF has been holding for years. Since its inception, it has been one of the premier art exhibitions in the region as it brings in several hundred applications from talented artists across the nation. All the exhibit entries are judged in an anonymous fashion by the juror. This process requires each piece of artwork to be accepted or denied based solely upon the level of quality each piece exhibits in relation to the other entries.


Annual Exhibit

June - July 2016

All OCAF members are encouraged to enter their artwork in our Annual Members Exhibition regardless their skill level. Every OCAF Member in good standing may submit up to 3 pieces they’ve created for the exhibit. Each member is assured that at least one piece will be accepted for the exhibit, making it a great opportunity for members to have their work up in our main gallery as a benefit of membership.
