All mediums are encouraged and accepted. All work, including frame, cannot be larger than 16×20 in size. The size of the actual image is entirely up to the artist. Work can protrude or be flat, of any subject matter or style, created of any materials, and can be created by artists of any age. Since this is a wall exhibition, all work must be ready to hang.

Submission Requirements and Terms:
A separate Entry Form must be fully completed for each work of art submitted.
Artists must be current members of the Watauga County Arts Council (most recent membership contribution must have been made after October 5, 2013). If the exhibiting artist is not a current WCAC member, he/she must join the WCAC at the time the work is installed in order to fulfill this requirement.
Artists must live in Watauga County or an adjoining county for at least some portion of the year. (Our adjoining counties are Ashe, Avery, Caldwell, and Wilkes in NC, and Johnson County, TN)
The artist should understand that keeping these commitments and leaving artwork for the full duration of an exhibit and promptly removing works is important to the success of the particular exhibit and the WCAC Gallery Program.

Exhibit Dates and Reception:
The exhibit will run from October 8th through November 1st. The Arts Council hosts the monthly Second Saturday Celebration of the Arts in honor of the gallery
exhibitions of the Blue Ridge ArtSpace so this month’s reception will be on Saturday, October 11th from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Submitting artists are urged to be present if possible.
