To provide our community with an outlet for their creative expression during this unprecedented time in all of our lives, the South Arkansas Arts Center invites you to participate in an art exhibition which will showcase any and all art created under the everyday conditions which are new to us all.

Go get busy making art! You do not have to sign up in advance in order to participate. There will be no entry fees, but there is prize money! To enter, you must have started working on your art project on or after March 14 and be completed by a TBD date to be announced. The end date for you to work on your artwork and the exhibit dates for the work to hang in the gallery are contingent upon the end of these life circumstances. Stay tuned for announcements of the dates to be determined.

Student Divisions are Grades K-4, Grades 5-8, and Grades 9-12. Awards in each division will be presented. Prizes are: First Place $75; Second Place $50; Third Place $25. Honorable mentions may be awarded with no cash prizes.

“Ready to hang/display work” means it should be delivered to SAAC ready to install in the gallery. 2D work should be able to hang on the wall – in a frame, velcro on the back, pins to hang it from… 3D work should be ready to display – no hanging method required unless that’s your preferred way to display it. Don’t forget to include your name and way to contact you by email or phone on the back of the pieces. If you have ANY questions about either of the competitions, please contact Kelly directly at kelly@saac-arts.org!
