ArtPrize is an open, independently organized international art competition which takes place for 19 days each fall in Grand Rapids, Michigan. More than five hundred thousand dollars in prizes are awarded each year, which include a $200,000 prize awarded entirely by public vote and another $200,000 prize awarded by a jury of art experts.
Any artist working in any medium from anywhere in the world can participate. Art is exhibited throughout downtown Grand Rapids—museums, bars, public parks, restaurants, theaters, hotels, bridges, laundromats, auto body shops, vacant storefronts and office spaces. Artists and venues register for the competition then find each other through an online connections process in late spring. No one at ArtPrize selects a single artist or artwork, directs an artist where to show work or directs a venue what to show. In 2016, 1,453 works created by artists from 40 states and 44 countries were exhibited in 170 venues.
ArtPrize is free and open to the public and now attracts over 500,000 visitors, making it the most attended public art event in the world in 2014 and 2015, according the The Art Newspaper’s annual “Big Ticket List.”

I've never done a festival-type show until this past spring. It was fun and so I thought, what the hell, I'll try another. This August I am participating in one of the most popular Dayton-area art festivals, Art on the Commons, brought to us by the Rosewood Arts Centre. Come shop for fine arts and crafts by 100 juried artists from around the country. Works include jewelry, ceramics, paintings, photography, metals, watercolor, sculpture, glass, fibers and wood creations. They'll also have live entertainment and tasty concessions.
Hope to see many familiar faces!!

Dayton Society of Artists Juried Show
Opening Reception: Friday, July 7th, 6-9PM
The very act of making art defies convention. Yet in the age where artists play freely with established rules and styles, un-convention takes on new meanings. For some, it could be the way in which an artist approaches material whether through process or the lack thereof. Or it could be the newness - the experience an audience has in that significant moment when one sees, feels and exists in a new reality. The authenticity of this connection between the audience and art breaks the convention of the everyday. Another way in which convention is defied is through the contemporary psychology of the artistic expression. Artists communicate content in various means to answer the question of selfhood. This may manifest through many forms and styles such as political, traditional, and conceptual to name just a few.
