Winners announced: August 8, 2020

Exhibition: August 15 - September 30

The current circumstances are uncertain, stressful and downright scary.  As artists we make art to maintain normalcy, find new ways to stay busy, make sense of the crisis and to process stress and grief. If you make art during this time we want to see it! 

Assuming it is safe for gatherings in August winning entries will be on exhibit in the Art Barn gallery. If shelter-in-place continues into late Summer we host the exhibit and celebrate our award winners online. 


Be a part of our first virtual art competition where we ask artists to create artwork using the materials available at home. The theme is “Our collective experience during the COVID-19 shelter-at-home order.”  Share the ways you have used creative expression to cope with the mental and physical challenges during this time as well as any positive outcomes experienced during the quarantine. Sponsored by Centier Bank - Chesterton.
