This year’s exhibit will be juried by Chris Clamp, an artist, art handler and consultant in fine art services, assisting with artwork acquisition and installation in homes, galleries and museums.

Online submissions are due no later than Friday, March 13th, 2019.

    • Open to all United States residents ages 18 and older.
    • Work previously exhibited at SouthWorks or at any OCAF exhibition is not eligible.
    • Each applicant may submit up to 3 artworks for consideration.
    • OCAF strongly encourages artists to only submit artwork that is for sale. OCAF will only accept a total of 5-10 artworks (10%) that are not for sale into the final exhibition. OCAF charges a 35% commission on all sold artworks. Checks for sold artwork will be mailed 10 business days after the exhibition closes.
    • All artwork must be original and created by the submitting artist.
    • No prints of original artwork will be accepted. The OCAF Director reserves final discretion in whether or not a print qualifies as an original artwork.
    • Artists must follow the proper procedures to submit and drop off artworks. Artwork submitted in an improper format will not be considered.


    • This is a juried exhibition. The juror reserves the right to include or exclude any entries. Inclusion in a previous SouthWorks exhibition does not guarantee inclusion in this year’s show.
    • A non-refundable jury fee of $30 for OCAF members and $40 for non-members is required. This fee allows artists to submit up to three pieces.
    • All entries will be juried from computer images. If selected and upon receipt the entry is not the quality reflected in the digital image, the juror reserves the right to exclude the work from the exhibit.
    • It is in the artist’s best interest to submit the highest quality images possible to be juried. The juror will not see any entries in person during the selection process.
